The Amazfit X finally goes live via Indiegogo
Huami's wearable brand, Amazfit, has launched its hotly-anticipated new device, the X. This product is fairly unique as it is rated to exhibit a 92-degree curve in its screen. Such a breakthrough allows it to fit a 2.07-inch screen in a fitness tracker-like form-factor.
Amazfit has also now revealed that it will support the Huami-PAI health-tracker also found in the Bip S smartwatch. It is also apparently packed with other wellness-focused features, optical heart-rate and blood-oxygen sensors included.
However, prospective backers should be aware that it runs this brand's own "Real-time" OS as opposed to something more standard like WearOS. Other potential drawbacks include a magnetic charger that conforms to the wearable's metallic arcing chassis rather than something more universal such as USB type C and no mention of NFC among its specs.
On that note, the Amazfit X now starts at US$149 (as opposed to its planned retail price of $329) for those who have grabbed super early-bird status on its new platform, (correct at time of writing) and is projected to start shipping in August 2020.
They are found on the campaign's Indiegogo page, possibly the path of least resistance to those interested in this manifestation of state-of-the-art flexible-display tech.
