Amazfit's newest smartwatch Bip S has now been launched in India. It is the same smartwatch that made its global debut at CES 2020 earlier this year. It is packed with a number of features but the highlight of the show is its insane 40-day battery life. It is also a successor to the Amazifit Bip smartwatch from 2018.
The Amazfit Bip S sports a 1.28-inch Transflective TFT color display with a resolution of 176 x 176 pixels and anti-fingerprint coating. It supports 64 RGB color gamut as well as Always On Display functionality. It offers two watch faces out of the box and there are more available for free download from Huami's own store.
It comes with Huami's BioTracker PPG Bio-Tracking Optical Sensor that has three times a larger sensing area than the predecessor. It is claimed to have a 98% accuracy rate and 1/5th power consumption than the last generation. There are 10 Sports Modes to help users track their outdoor activities. It is even 5ATM water resistance and offers Swim Tracking for swimmers.
Like other smartwatches, it is capable of showing text messages, app notifications, incoming call alerts, and weather updates. It can also be used for setting up reminders, timers, and alarms. The smartwatch comes with Bluetooth 5.0 and runs Amazfit OS. It is powered by a 200mAh battery that is said to take 2 hours for a full charge. Lastly, it can be paired with any device running Android 5.0/iOS 10.0 or higher.
The Amazfit Bip S has been priced at Rs. 4,999 with an option to choose from Red Orange, Carbon Black, White Rock, and Warm Pink colors. It will be sold via online partners Amazon India, Myntra, and Flipkart along with offline retailers like Reliance Digital, Croma, and Poorvika Mobiles.
