If we look at the panorama of cheap sportwatches, undoubtedly the most iconic was and still is the Amazfit Bip proposed in further variants such as the Bip Lite or the Bip S, the latter evolution of the first generation, but in a market that is always more fierce and represented by worthy rivals here comes yet another evolution, namely Amazfit Bip U, which becomes one of the cheapest options for those looking for a smartwatch capable of detecting blood oxygen saturation levels (SpO2), excluding of course the ciofeche that are around and that even promise to measure the pressure and maybe even make us coffee and tuck in the covers.
On an aesthetic level, the Amazfit Bip U is almost indistinguishable from the S model, launched a few months ago, offering on the front a 1,43-inch color TFT screen, with 320 x 320 pixel resolution and customization via watchfaces, of which over 50 already available on the companion app store. The body is made of polycarbonate, with a weight of only 31 grams and dimensions of 40.9 x 35.5 x 11.4 mm, the smart watch is compact and light and offers a comfort that already after a few hours of wearing makes us forget we have it on the wrist , further customization is given by the silicone strap with 20 mm pitch, whose quick release allows you to change it with the many available on the market.
The new Amazfit Bip U is now official: now with a blood oxygen meter on offer at 40 €
Amazfit Bip U should not be thought so much of a smartwatch, but rather of a sportwatch, considering the over 60 monitorable sport modes, from the various integrated sensors, such as the high-precision GPS (this only present in the Bip U Pro variant). But the real novelty lies in the sensor capable of measuring the SpO2 value with OxygenBeats technology and which, thanks to the BioTracker 2 system, integrates with the 24-hour heart rate measurement and SomnusCare sleep monitoring.
There is also the assessment of the state of health through the PAI index, stress monitoring, respiratory trainer and tracking of the menstrual cycle for young ladies, passionate about technology. To all this is added remote control of the smartphone music player and camera as well as receiving any kind of notification, but without the possibility of a reply. Water resistance up to 5 ATM (5o meters) is present, confirming the monitoring of water sports such as swimming. Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity for data sync with smartphone via ZEPP companion app.
The autonomy of Amazfit Bip U is guaranteed by a 230 mAh lithium-ion battery that offers up to 9 days of intense use. At the moment Amazfit Bip U has been launched in India but pesto will also reach our country, hoping that the introductory offer price will be kept which at the moment is 3499 Indian rupees, or about 40 euros at the exchange rate, a price that will however rise to 5999 rupees Indian, or around 70 euros.
