Amazfit Bip S Lite with transflective color display, 30-day battery life launches in India for ₹3,799 ($51)
Following the launch of the Amazfit Bip S earlier this year in June, Chinese wearables manufacturer Huami has now launched the slightly more affordable Amazfit Bip S Lite in India. Priced at ₹3,799, the new Amazfit Bip S Lite looks almost identical to the non-lite variant with a square dial and a single button on the right edge. It features the same 1.28-inch transflective color TFT display with a resolution of 176×176 pixels and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection against scratches.

The Amazfit Bip S Lite is an affordable fitness tracker that features a BioTracker PPG bio-tracking optical sensor and a 3-axis acceleration sensor for heart rate and activity tracking, respectively. However, to keep the price low, Huami hasn’t included the 2-axis geomagnetic sensor on the Amazfit Bip S Lite, which can be found on the regular Bip S. The device features support for eight sports modes and the Huami-PAI health assessment feature that makes use of data collected over the last seven days to show a PAI score.
While Huami hasn’t unveiled the exact specifications of the battery on the new Bip S Lite, the company claims that it can last for up to 30-days on a single charge in a typical usage scenario and provide up to 90-days of battery life in standby mode. For connectivity, the Amazfit Bip S Lite includes Bluetooth 5.0/BLE and supports all Android devices running Android 5.0 or newer. The Amazfit Bip S Lite will also offer users access to over 40 watch faces and two custom widgets, with more than 150 watch faces to be added via OTA updates at a later date.
Pricing and Availability
The Amazfit Bip S lite has been priced at ₹3,799 and will be available for purchase in India on July 29th via a flash sale on Flipkart and Amazfit’s website. Interested buyers will be able to choose from three color options — Black, Blue, and Pink. In case you miss the first flash sale, the second flash sale is scheduled for August 3rd at 12 PM, and the device will go on open sale starting August 5th at 8 PM IST.
