Update: July 29 2020 (3:51AM ET): The Amazfit Bip S launched in India last month, bringing plenty of features for Rs 4,999 (~$66). Thatâ€™s a low price, but what if youâ€™re looking for something even cheaper? Thatâ€™s where the newly launched Amazfit Bip S Lite comes in.
The new wearable has just launched in India for Rs 3,799 (~$51), but there are definitely a few compromises compared to the standard Bip S. For one, Huami says it has a 30-day battery life compared to the standard modelâ€™s claimed 40-day endurance. The Amazfit Bip S Lite also tracks eight sports modes and activities compared to the standard modelâ€™s 10 modes.

Nevertheless, the Lite model does pack features like 5ATM water resistance, a color display, the firmâ€™s PAI health suite, and 40 watch faces (with more coming via updates). The first flash sale for the Bip S Lite is taking place as of writing via Flipkart.
For what itâ€™s worth, our own Adamya Sharma thought the standard model was a pretty good fitness tracker in her Amazfit Bip S review. However, serious app connectivity issues and some usability problems (e.g. music controls, lack of freestyle workouts) marred her experience. So you might want to wait for Bip S Lite reviews.
Original article: June 3 2020 (3:26AM ET): Amazfit is one of the bigger names in the fitness and wearable space, with its gadgets offering good value for money. Now, the company has launched the Amazfit Bip S in India, marking the latest bang for your buck wearable in the market.
The wearableâ€™s biggest selling point might be its endurance, with Amazfit touting a 40-day battery life. But this drops dramatically to 20 hours when you use the integrated GPS, and the firm says you can expect 15 days of usage in a â€œtypical usage scenario.â€�
The Amazfit Bip S packs ten sports modes, including running, walking, treadmills, and yoga. Otherwise, youâ€™re also getting 5ATM water resistance for improved durability, a 1.28-inch transflective color display, and Bluetooth 5.
