What is the line between inspiration and blatant copy? This is really very difficult to define and, looking over the years, we can see that not even the companies themselves have this notion established.
As a matter of fact, sometimes there are some "ideas" that resemble others so much that we can call them "copy." This seems to be the case with smartwatch Amazfit Beepwhich sounds like a pretty smart watch that we know very well
The Beep is made by Huami, which is also a Mi Band (Xiaomi) supplier, and, as is well known, it is very similar to Apple Watch, especially if you look from afar. Of course, the company seems to have been careful (or not) not to let it identical to the clock of the Ma.
There are some differences, both in some external details and, of course, in your system, which is compatible with both Android and iOS smartphones (that is, there is no app store for it, it only serves as a mobile notification center).
But over the look, there are some pretty interesting things, like the fact that it only costs $ 100 and also because the company promises an amazing 4 month battery life in “clock mode” (Watch mode), 45 days in what it calls Running mode (race mode) and if you want to use GPS, the range of autonomy drops to 22 hours, which is basically the standard for smartwatches. Terms for each mode, however, were not disclosed; By the names we can suppose that to last as long as they promise, it needs to be used more as a "watch" and set aside its clever part.
In addition, the Beep features a 1.28 inch touchscreen, an optical heart rate sensor, GPS, three-axis accelerometer and IP68-rated water resistance.
Amazfit Bip can be purchased from the company's website or from Amazon, in black. White / black and red / green variations will possibly be available by the end of March.
