Huami wants to be the next health tech powerhouse, starting with a lot of watches, earbuds and gym equipment.
The Pebble Watch is long dead,, which was then , but its spirit lived on in the . A watch nobody knew, by a company no one recognized, became one of the most loved watches on Amazon over the last few years.
I didn’t expect the Bip to be back at this year’s, but it is, in a new model called the Bip S. It’s the global debut of what was previously called “Amazfit Bip 2,” and adds a few key extras: 5 ATM water resistance, swim tracking, added exercise modes and Bluetooth music controls.
The Amazfit Bip is made by Chinese health tech company Huami, a former manufacturer of wearables for Xiaomi. You still might not know who Huami is. Huami sold over 4 million Amazfit Bips, making it the company’s biggest hit.
