Huami, the Xiaomi-owned wearables manufacturer which recently went public, has made its Xiaomi Amazfit BIP smartwatch available in the US for a price of $99. The smartwatch was originally launched in China in August last year.

Design-wise, the Amazfit BIP looks similar to the Apple Watch. The device comes with a 1.28-inch always-on color touch display with a screen resolution of 176 x 176 pixels. The display is covered by a 2.5D layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The device features IP68 dust and water resistance.

Coming to the sensors, the Amazfit BIP comes with PPG heart rate sensor, tri-axial acceleration sensor, geomagnetic sensor, barometric pressure sensor, GPS + GLONASS, and more. The device is compatible with Apple as well as Android-based devices.

The smartwatch is powered by a 190mAh battery which promises over 30 days of battery life with normal use or up to 45 days with minimal notifications on a single charge. However, when using the device with GPS tracking, it only gets 22 hours on a charge.

The device supports activity tracking as well as sports and sleep tracking. Using the device, users can receive notifications for calls, messages, emails, and other apps. With multi-sport tracking, it tracks user’s runs, cycling and more with mapped routes, detailed stats and heart rate zones.
