Amazfit Bip U teased with a big spec sheet and major screen improvements

Amazfit is preparing to launch the Amazfit Bip U, an updated version of its super-budget smartwatch.

A teaser page for an all-new Amazfit Bip U has been launched on Amazon India.

It lists the full details with pictures, and it looks like a strong competitor to the emerging range of sub-$100 smartwatches, which are piling pressure on the likes of Fossil, Fitbit and Apple.

The Amazfit Bip U features a larger 1.42-inch display, up from 1.28-inch on the Bip S.

And the resolution has doubled, from 176×176 to 320×302, but it’s a TFT display, so we’re not expecting the same quality as the AMOLED army.

How Large Wide Screen Monitors Revolutionize Work-At-Home Productivity

Millions of people have been forced to work from home since March of this year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This move has not been painful for mobile workers as they have learned to use laptops on the road and at home to work for decades.

But for many who only worked from the office, this transition to working from home has been a two-edged sword.
