Huami Amazfit Bip S Lite Smartwatch Price in India
We are well aware of the fact that there is nothing that can beat the Apple watch in the premium segment. But if you are someone like me, you must be looking for something like “best smartwatch under budget” or”‘which smartwatch offers better features for the price”.
Here given the Huami Amazfit Bip S Lite Review. In that case, you are in the right place. Let’s check out if Huami Amazfit Bip S Lite fits our needs. BTW, Huami never fails to confuse you with its slew of products with twisted names- Amazfit Bip S Lite, Amazfit BIP Smartwatch, Amazfit BIP S Smartwatch, etc. I hope they are listening to us.
Huami Amazfit Bip S Lite: Screen and Design
A square-shaped dial with curved edges. That’s the standard for any smartwatch and manufacturers need to improve the design within that framework. Amazfit Bip S Lite comes with a 1.28 Transflective color and 2 built-In watch faces. You can also download more watch faces online (over 150 as mentioned on their website).
The display is okayish, nothing to get excited about except for the ‘always-on’ feature which allows you to have certain metrics such as time and hear rate displayed even after the watch goes into sleep mode. The Amazfit Bip S Lite has a Transflective display- the main reason why the watch can last nearly 30 days with just one charge.
The transflective display offers good readability under bright sunlight. The Transmissive and Reflective modes work together for enhanced performance which helps you to read under bright environments without a need for a backlight (LCD screens use backlighting since they do not produce light by themselves).
The build of the watch is pretty simple. On the back, there is a heart rate sensor and a charging point, and on the side, we have a button that can be used to turn on the display or to navigate the screen.
The device comes with a 5 ATM Water Resistance rating. This means that the device can withstand 50 meters in depth for 10 minutes. So take it comfortably to your shower.
Huami Amazfit Bip S Lite: Smartwatch features
First, you need to install the Amazfit app, follow on-screen instructions to connect the device to the app on the smartphone. Within the app, you can see your heart rate metrics, sleep metrics, and step count. You can also select which workout mode you are on – say if you are on a treadmill, select the workout mode that says “Treadmill” and now the tracker is ready to track your treadmill activity (calories burnt, time spent, etc.). The Huami Amazfit Bip S Lite has a total of 8 exercise modes. This number is close to what all fitness bands and smartwatches offer.
The smartwatch does not have in-built GPS (available in the upgraded version- Huami Amazfit Bip S). Lack of in-built GPS means it uses your smartphone’s GPS as an alternative. So be sure to carry your smartphone along with the smartwatch if you want to track your outdoor fitness pursuits.
Personal Activity Intelligence
The Personal Activity Intelligence feature is similar to the personal trainer that is there in Honor Band 5. It helps you to schedule exercises, set time for each exercise, etc. Definitely a feature worth trying.
Playback control and notifications
Even low key smart bands are coming up with music controls these days. So nothing special to talk about it but I am here to say that you can control your music and notifications using Amazfit Bip S Lite. This includes reading messages (not replying) from compatible apps, control music apps such as Gaana (play, pause, next song, etc.), and control calls without the need to touch your smartphone.
Amazfit Bip S Lite Heart rate monitoring
You can track your resting heart rate and heart rate during exercises. Open the app and check your metrics over time.
We saved the best for last. You get to have 30 days of battery life, thanks to the incredibly efficient Transflective display. The watch comes with its own charging dock with a magnetic charger. A big thumbs up for the battery performance.
Final verdict Amazfit Bip S Lite
You may consider Amazfit Bip S Lite if your budget is under 4000 INR and if you are willing to compromise on the looks. Better readability under sunlight and long battery life are some of the key USPs for the Huami Amazfit Bip S Lite. Other attractive features such as water resistance, activity intelligence (PAI- health assessment), always-on color display, etc. would make the Amazfit Bip S Lite worth the price. Give it a try.
