Gadget Finds: Xiaomi Huami Amazfit BIP PACE lite

Yes, a mouthful for a smartwatch. We know. Try saying that ten times fast!

The Xiaomi Huami Amazfit BIP PACE lite is not the first of its kind from the Chinese manufacturer by any means. Dial in 2 years ago and you will see their attempts at the smartwatch race with the first Amazfit (which stands for ‘amazing and fit’ or some iteration of how that translates to Chinese) among so many other version like the Xiaomi Band.

The original Amazfit that featured a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1.34-inch display with 300×300 px resolutions, 4GB of storage, 512 MB of RAM, 280 mAh of battery, GPS, and heart rate monitor seemed like a small feat and seemed like aged ago what with the fan favorite Pebble taking on the limelight for so long until its eventual demise.

Fast forward to 2017, Huami, the partner manufacturer of Xiaomi, focused on wearables, is trying to take over the niche that left so many longing for a smartwatch with decent hardware, reasonable software, and long battery life that doesn’t require daily charging. While we would all love to have the Apple Watch, Samsung Gear, the LG Urbane, or the Asus Zenwatch, it’s just getting harder and harder to justify the price of a mid-ranged phone for a device so small.

Good thing Xiaomi has heard your woes and went on ahead to release the Amazfit BIP PACE and the BIP PACE lite that will feature a 45 day standby time for long extended usage thanks to the very power efficient colored e-ink display, IP68 dust and water resistance, and Sony’s 28m GPS module + Glonass dual core positioning.

Other key specifications are as follows:

1.28 inch capacitive touch screen – resolution 176 x 176 pixel
Corning Gorilla glass material
Reflective display technology
GPS + Glonass
Heart rate monitor
Call reminder
Information push
190 mAh battery

Yes, that’s not saying a lot considering even Xiaomi’s own website doesn’t even have any morsel of an information as to what is really powering the device.

The Xiaomi Huami Amazfit BIP PACE LITE (the Chinese website calls it BIP PACE youth) is available to purchase at Lazada Philippines retailing from Php 4,100 – Php 4,500.
