“The budget activity tracker is now available on Amazon with features such as GPS, heart rate sensor, and more”
Xiaomi-backed wearables manufacturer Huami has launched its latest activity tracker in India, dubbed the Huami Amazfit Bip Lite. The activity tracker offers a commendable list of features, aimed at bringing dedicated sport tracking and other specialised functions within an affordable price segment. The Huami Amazfit Bip Lite is now available on Amazon India. Despite launching with an MRP of Rs 4,999, the activity tracker is presently priced at Rs 3,999.
The Amazfit Bip Lite features a 1.28-inch colour touchscreen display. The always-on display also features Corning’s 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3 on top, to protect against accident bruises and dents. The display helps the device multi-function as a smartwatch, by providing glance views of time, date, weather, calendar, sports news, while also scrolling notifications for calls, messages, emails and a few other compatible apps from your smartphone.
Among its main features, the Amazfit Bip Lite features a GPS that — combined with the three-axis accelerometer, a barometer and a compass — provides holistic location tracking, including directional orientation, altitude recording, etc. The tracker also includes an optical heart rate sensor which can be set to constantly monitor your heart rate. Other features include sport-specific modes that employ all the onboard sensors to specify actions such as running, cycling, exercises, and more.
It is interesting to note that each of these sports modes can generate time-based data on your body statistics, including heart rate maps, which can be crucial in early detection of any medical conditions. The Amazfit Bip Lite is a fairly compact activity tracker, with a 20mm case and interchangeable straps, and weighs only 31 grams, which should help users wear it for long durations. According to Huami, the Bip Lite’s 1,900mAh battery can provide standby battery life of 45 days, although effective battery life will possibly be much lesser with always-on display enabled.
