There is a single button on the Bip Lite, on the right side, which is the wake/back button. You have to swipe on the display to navigate through the UI of the watch.

- The touchscreen disables itself after a couple of seconds to prevent accidental touches, and you need to wake it by pressing the button. The watch is capable of pulling notifications from your smartphone and you can see them at a glance.
- The Amazfit app also lets you narrow down the apps which will alert you on the watch. However, you cannot reply to these directly, making the Bip Lite work more as a notifier than a smartwatch.
- You can change watch faces on the watch itself, The default watch faces the Bip Lite comes with is a minimally blocky, almost-brutalist digital numeral-based face that mostly occupies the center column of the screen, with the hours, minutes, and steps arranged from top-to-bottom, respectively.

Continuous heart rate tracking is possible on the Amazfit Bip Lite. You can set different intervals between 1 minute and 30 minutes for continuous tracking, We had set it to 1 minute for the entire duration of this review.
We found it to be fairly accurate. In Activity tracking mode, the Bip Lite tracks the wearer’s heart rate constantly. The Bip Lite also got our sleep and wake up times right.
With 200 mAh, the battery is slightly larger than on the Amazfit Bip (190 mAh). However, Huami advertises a runtime of up to 120 days standby and 45 days of “normal use”.
For measurements in the Huami Science and Technology Sports Laboratory, the manufacturer defines the latter as follows: 100 notifications per day, running for half an hour once a week, permanent monitoring of the pulse, motion and sleep behavior and the brightness set to 10%.
However, the default brightness preset is higher and 10% appears a little too low.
