The Bip S addresses one of the most notable omissions of the original Bip: a true water resistance rating. The Bip S now has a 5 ATM water resistance rating compared to the original’s IP68 rating.
The Bip S also has improved battery life, now lasting up to 40 days, up from 30 days of the original. This is thanks to the transflective display, which uses sunlight shined on the watch to brighten the screen.
The Bip S also retains the super lightweight of the original, coming in at just 31 grams.
The Bip S also gets an upgrade on its GPS capabilities, with a new chip that enables GPS + GLONASS positioning, making it a very rugged smartwatch. On top of that, the Bip S is now equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 and a fresh new two-tone design that looks much better than the original.
Pricing and Availability
Even with all of the upgraded components, Huami still managed to keep the price of the Bip S at just $69.90; an absolute bargain for what you’re getting.
