Last summer, the Chinese company Huami introduced an interesting "smart" clock Amazfit Bip with good autonomy and built-in GPS. On the international market, the model was presented only now.
What can they do?
Amazfit Bip equipped with 1.28-inch color display with a resolution of 176x176 pixels, which is always active and remains readable in any lighting. It reminded the smart watch of the dead Pebble. The dial is covered with a 2.5D-glass Gorilla Glass. According to the manufacturer, battery life is about a month in mixed mode or 45 days with minimal use of notifications. Of course, with the active GPS module, the charge rate increases dramatically. By the way, the battery capacity is 190 mAh.
The case of the gadget is protected from dust and water according to the IP68 standard. On the back there is a heart rate monitor. In addition to physical activity, the clock monitors the owner's sleep and synchronizes the data with the Mi Fit application from Xiaomi. It is available for Android and iOS. The watch comes in four colors, you can use any straps with a width of 20 mm.
Alas, synchronization with Strava (as on Amazfit Pace) is not provided. In fact, there are ways to export location data, but so that without dancing with a tambourine - yet. To support the Russian language, too, there are questions. It is hoped that with the release of Amazfit Bip beyond China, developers will correct at least some of the shortcomings.
In the American store on Amazfit Bip you can pre-order at a price of $ 99 with the beginning of deliveries in March. In the home market, the clock will cost about $ 60, and even on the GearBest the black model can be bought for $ 61 (some versions are more profitable to take on AliExpress ).
