Amazfit Bip U Pro, now with GPS and Amazon Alexa on board
Xiaomi continues to add smartwatches through the Amazfit brand, which in October this year introduced the Amazfit Bip U Pro, a fairly affordable sports smartwatch to the market. Now the company introduces us to the Amazift Bip U Pro, which incorporates certain important improvements over the standard model, mainly GPS / Glonass and the possibility of using Amazon’s voice assistant.
This is the Amazift Bip U Pro
Needless to say, on the outside nothing has changed, the watch retains the 1.43-inch square screen (320 x 302 pixels) and also the polycarbonate case with interchangeable silicone straps. The dimensions of size and weight are exactly the same, so we will not delve further into the subject.
In terms of functions, we will find news, starting with the support for Amazon Alexa, which will allow us to give voice commands, ask the assistant questions, control the smart devices in your home, set alarms/reminders and much more.
The incorporation of GPS and Glonass is the second big news (dedicated chip), and this translates into location tracking for more accurate tracking of outdoor activity.
The sports modes amount to 60, where we will find monitoring for activities such as walking, running outdoors, yoga and also for sports such as baseball, basketball, tennis, badminton and swimming; The latter is possible thanks to the 5 ATM resistance against water present in the Amazfit Bip U Pro.
Otherwise, we will find the same characteristics present in the base model, which is not a negative thing when we take into consideration what it implies. We’re talking state-of-the-art features like 24/7 heart rate monitor, sleep quality, blood oxygen (SpO2) meter, stress monitoring, PAI health assessment, and menstrual cycle tracking for ladies.
Finally, the watch has a 230mAh battery capable of offering 9 days of normal use, although with GPS activated that duration will be considerably reduced.
Availability and price
The Amazift Bip U Pro is now available through online stores such as Amazon.com and PC Components for a price of $69.90.
