Xiaomi-backed fitness brand Huami is launching its latest wearable, the Amazfit Bip Lite in India. The fitness tracker has been listed on Amazon India under Prime Day launches, which means it will be available for sale starting July 15th. The fitness tracker comes as a toned-down variant of Huami’s debut launch in India – the Amazfit Bip.
The Amazfit Bip Lite is equipped with a 1.28-inch always-on reflective display featuring a resolution of 176 x 176 pixels. The screen is protected by a layer of Corning Corilla Glass with 2.5D curvature. The fitness tracker features a 20mm plastic strap, which is interchangeable. It retains the same design as its sibling that was launched last year. It is IP68 rated, which means the wearable is protected against dust, rain and accidental splashes. At just 31gms, the fitness tracker is also very light and can be worn all time, even when you go to bed. The band uses Bluetooth 4.0 LE to connect to your smartphone. It is cross compatible with both Android and iOS platforms. Users can check notifications for calls, messages, emails, and more at a glance.
Coming to the fitness features, the Amazfit Bip Lite’s selling point is the optical heart rate sensor. Apart from that, there is a multisport tracking option which includes running, cycling and more with mapped routes. The fitness tracker can display detailed stats of your workout as well as your heart rate zones, which is crucial for professional athletes. For outdoor activities, there is a 3-axis accelerometer, barometer for elevation, compass, and GPS + GLONASS for route tracking. There is a 190mAh battery, which the brand claims can last up to 45 days on a single charge.
The Amazfit Bip Lite will go on sale next month and will retail for Rs 3,999. The Amazon India website shows Rs 4,999 as the original price, which suggests that post the Prime Day sale you will have to shell out an extra Rs 1,000.
