The Bip made by a company called Huami - which is a United States firm that makes wearables for Chinese tech giant Xiaomi - and is described as the "perfect daily companion to keep you informed and active". Past year around Amazfit had launched the Pace smartwatch.

With support for both iOS and Android phones, but no Android Wear functionality, the Amazfit Bip promises to serve all the notifications you need on a respectable-sounding "always-on" 1.28 inch color touch display.

The Amazfit Bip smartwatch is the flawless daily companion to keep you informed and active. But, now it seems like it wants to take the battle straight to Apple with the launch of its latest smartwatch. It features IP68 dust and water resistance, PPG heart rate sensor, triaxial acceleration sensor, geomagnetic sensor, barometric pressure sensor, GPS + GLONASS, and more. The display is topped with a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and AF coating that provides a view of the time, steps, weather, date, sports statistics, etc. Currently, it is listed on Amazfit US website.

Xiaomi Amazfit Bip comes with an impressive battery life- 45 days on a single

Huami's latest smartwatch offering stands out from the crown by delivering an extremely long battery life.

The biggest highlight of the smartwatch, however, is its 190mAh battery that on a full charge of 2.5 hours lasts as long as 4 months when used in the watch mode, or as claimed by Xiaomi, "up to 30 days with normal usage and up to 45 days with minimal notifications". Built-in Global Positioning System is another remarkable and possibly unique feature for the sub-$100 price point, and you also get optical heart rate monitoring, a 3-axis accelerometer for activity, sports and sleep tracking, compass, barometer, and IP68 rating for resistance to dust, rain, splashing, and "accidental submersion". The Amazfit Bip is compatible with both iOS and Android platforms. Using the device, users can receive notifications for calls, messages, emails, and other apps.

In terms of design, the Bip smartwatch bears an uncanny resemblance to an Apple Watch model at a fraction of the cost.
