The much-awaited Amazfit smartwatch with curved display i.e. Amazfit X is now available for orders for early adopters via an Indiegogo campaign. The campaign listing details all the specifications and features along with the design process. It talks about what makes it different from other smartwatches and what it would look like in real.
The unique selling point (USP) of the Amazfit X is its "extra-wide curved display" that is said to be more fitting for the wrist than other options. It will help users see and engage with more content without having to scroll up/down often. It is a 2.07-inch curved AMOLED display panel with 92-degrees curvature. It supports HD resolution with 326ppi pixel density, 400 nits of peak brightness, and 100% NTSC color saturation.
The smartwatch bears a full metal unibody build for durability and premium feel when touched. The metal is actually titanium alloy which means it should be lightweight as well. There are no buttons or crown on the smartwatch as it features only a single force-sensitive sensor. It is available on the right side and responds to user interaction with "textured, natural" vibrations.
It comes with BioTracker PPG sensor for 24x7 heart rate monitoring with "high-precision". It is further capable of sleep tracking, sports detection, stress level monitoring, and blood oxygen level detection through the SpO2 sensor. There is a 200mAh battery claimed to last for up to seven days on a single charge. And yes, it has 5ATM water resistance so that one can wear it even while swimming.
The Amazfit X is available for purchase via Indiegogo campaign where it can be grabbed for as low as $149. The actual price for the smartwatch is set at $329 with an estimated shipping timeline around August 2020. It is available in Eclipse Black and New Moon Gold color variants.
