The Huami brand recently hit the headlines all thanks to their cheap wearables. But, one of its newest additions, the Amazfit X could be their most impressive design yet. From the revealed specs, Amazfit smartwatch looks like a powerful beast.
Huami revealed their smartwatch on IndieGoGo, including its outstanding design, curved OLED screen, and latest tech. If you are interested in this crowdfunded device, you are in for a treat. We’ve compiled all the info on the Amazfit X, as well as the latest rumours and speculations.
What’s the Amazfit X Smartwatch All About?
Amazfit X takes smartwatches to a whole new level. It’s all about the curves—a big screen, simple menu, perfect for a single glance.
The Amazfit X appeared as a prototype on many tradeshows. But, with the ambitious design and tech, they managed to overcome all the financial challenges.
Huami listed the product for crowdfunding in January. Back then, it was impossible to tell if it was just a marketing opportunity or a product ready for production. But, once all the details got out, we received all the information we needed.
The brand managed to cap the $20,000 IndieGoGo target and reach more than $259,000 in pledges just a month after posting their device, eventually reaching $1.5 million in revenue. Soon after, the smartwatch vent viral.
Amazfit Smartwatch Design
When it comes to a one-of-a-kind design, it’s hard to match the Amazfit X. All the rumours from months ago came true.
It features a button-less design, curved 2.07″ AMOLED display, and wide touchscreen. It comes with a unique curvature that no other smartwatch has. The colour screen is equipped with 430 nits Brightness and 366 PPI. It’s compact, stylish, and perfect for both women and men.
Why The Curve?
The Amazfit X is crafted with excellent precision, just as you would get from a high-end smartwatch. The goal of the intricate 92-degree curvature is to fit perfectly on any wrist.
Huami wanted to create a useful smartwatch that won’t get in your way. Not many brands are putting this much effort into just comfort.
Amazfit Smartwatch Release Date
In May, the brand announced they would extend the campaign to June to raise more pledges and set retail availability for August.
Some believe this approach was to raise more interest and awareness of the product rather than income for manufacturing. We don’t think Huami is having trouble with the funds. It seems as though they need more popularity.
They first presented the product in August 2019 and released a few teasers before coming up with the finished product. They received plenty of positive feedback, which set production in motion.
The release date was on April 29th, 2020, and will soon be available for the global market. But, there is a chance global sales could be postponed with the ongoing health crisis.
Amazfit Smartwatch Price
The initial retail price for Amazfit X was $329. Some users got lucky and purchased it for $149. These sales went fast, so it was challenging to get your hands on such a great deal. But, the prices change all the time, so it’s possible to get 50% or 80% off with coupons and sales.
However, it lacks a couple of features you would expect for this price range. It doesn’t have NFC or body temperature tracking, which is something other devices have. The main difference with the Amazfit X is the curved screen constructed with careful 700C heating techniques.
Amazfit Smartwatch Pros
• Intricate design
• Water resistance
• BioTracker sensor
• 9 modes
• 7-day battery life
• Sleep tracker

Amazfit Smartwatch Cons
• No NFC
• Can’t track body temperature
There were a lot of speculations as to why Huami turned to crowdfunding. But, when they announced their reasons, everything was cleared up. The reason they chose IndieGoGo was to create strong connections with tech-seekers and build a global community.
What they needed was feedback before getting into the market, explained the brand. With more than 100 million devices shipped, the company is ready to take on the market.
If you are in for something attractive with an intricate curved design, this smartwatch will tick all the boxes. But, if you are in the mood for a full-on featured fitness tracker with as many options as possible, you may not find the Amazfit X that appealing. All in all, it is an excellent device at an attractive price range. It has excellent specs and just enough features for those looking for a reliable fitness tracker.
