If you love Apple products but they don’t fit your budget, Xiaomi have a solution for you! The Chinese manufacturer is a recent entrant in the world of smartwatches but it has already created a niche for offering cheaper yet solid alternatives. In this article we will talk about Xiaomi Amazfit Bip which looks a lot like Apple watch and the best part – it offers a month of battery life.
This wearable smart watch will come in four different colors – white, black, green and red. It boasts a 1.28-inch touchscreen display and a square-faced design. Although it looks a lot like Apple watch, there’s a lot more to it than just being a look alike.
The Amazfit smartwatch weighs about 31g and it comes with a heart rate monitor, 3-axis accelerometer, and GPS/GLONASS sensors that enable users to track their activities. There’s also a barometer that helps in detecting elevation and a geomagnetic sensor that is used as the device’s compass. The device comes with an IP68 water resistant, which may be good for sweat but not for the swimming pool.
When it comes to features, the device comes equipped with all the essentials such as the notification support for emails, texts and other third-party apps. The activity settings can be easily tweaked using the Mi Fit app. This is where you will find all the activity stats like time, speed, heart rate zone, pace and stride length stored for your use.
So, if you are a fitness freak you can keep a track of how much of activity your body gets in a day. It also helps in monitoring your heart rate which is amazing for a reasonably priced device.
The biggest drawing point of this smartwatch is however the battery which claims to offer a life of 30 days. When some of the features are turned off, it may last for as long as 45 days.
We like the fact that although the Xiaomi smartwatch is meant to be a cheaper alternative, the manufacturer has not skimped on the features. The device not only looks great but is also easy to use. It comes with a nice and friendly user interface.
Xiaomi’s first smartwatch came as a breakthrough in this market to offer users a much affordable wearable device. It will be interesting to see what the Chinese manufacturer has in offer for this year.
