At the CES 2020 trade show earlier this year in January, Huami unveiled the Amazfit T-Rex smartwatch, Amazfit Bip S fitness tracker, Amazfit PowerBuds, and the Amazfit ZenBuds wireless. For the unaware, the Amazfit Bip S is a follow up to the Amazfit Bip, which was launched back in 2018, featuring new internals but without any noticeable changes in terms of design. The lightweight fitness tracker is now finally making its way to the Indian market, according to a recent press release shared by the company.

The Amazfit Bip S is an affordable fitness tracker that packs in a 1.28″ transflective color display with a 176 x176 resolution. It features a BioTracker PPG Bio-tracking Optical Sensor, a 3-axis acceleration sensor, and a 2-axis geomagnetic sensor for all your fitness tracking needs. The fitness band also includes support for Bluetooth 5.0/BLE and packs in a 200mAh lithium-ion polymer battery which is rated to provide 40-days of battery life on a single charge.
Just like other Amazfit smartwatches, the Amazfit Bip S features the Huami-PAI health assessment feature which makes use of data about your physical activity over the last seven days to show a PAI score. The company claims that maintaining a PAI score of more than 100 ensures a healthy lifestyle and reduces the chances of cardiovascular diseases. To help you stay in perfect shape, the fitness tracker is equipped with 10 sports modes — Treadmill, Outdoor running, Walking, Indoor cycling, Outdoor cycling, to name a few.
It’s also worth noting that the Amazfit Bip S has a similar ODM design as the upcoming Realme Watch, leaked images of which recently surfaced online. Since the Realme Watch is making its way to India, it makes sense for Huami to launch the Amazfit Bip S in the country. The Amazfit Bip S will be available for purchase in India starting from June 3, but we currently have no word on the pricing. We expect the watch to be priced around the ₹5,000 mark, based on its international price of $69.90.
