The Amazfit X is now available to order from Xiaomi
The Huami Amazfit X smartwatch went live on Indiegogo earlier this year, where it raised nearly US$2 million from just under 12,000 backers. Huami made the smartwatch available in two colours for US$329, which both have 2.07-inch AMOLED screens, 5 ATM water resistance, 7-day battery life and a full metal unibody design, among other features. Huami should now have started shipping the first and second batches of Eclipse Black orders too, and should finish shipping all batches by the end of September.
In the meantime, Xiaomi has listed the Amazfit X on its Youpin eCommerce platform. The smartwatch will be available to order from August 25 10:00 CST for CNY 999 (~US$144) and will eventually retail for CNY 1,999 (~US$289). Those prices are considerably lower than the early bird prices on Indiegogo, so Youpin may be the best place from which to purchase an Amazfit X if you can do so.
Youpin orders are expected to start shipping on October 29. The Amazfit X will be available in the same Eclipse Black and New Moon Gold colours are Huami offered on Indiegogo. The smartwatch also features an integrated GPS module and a SpO2 sensor.
