Amazfit X device Review in Bit
Amazfit is a product of Huami, popular for it’s wearables and earbuds. Its latest inventory is called Amazfit X and is a smart band with a curved display. This futuristic-looking device was crowdfunded at Indiegogo and so far delivered nearly $2 million from 12,000 people.
Though the design is unusual for big manufacturers, the project is looks a success, and we got the inch to review it and to determine whether Amazfit has just build the next big thing.
We got a circular box with the X wrapped around what appears to be a charging stand. It appears lovely but tremendously sophisticated. Upon closer inspection, we observed you can detach it and use it as a regular proprietary charger.
Firstly, we noticed the really long screen that merges seamlessly with the rubber bands.
Because of the form of the Amazfit X, the straps aren’t standard, but the best thing is there is an extra strap in the box for bigger wrists.
We couldn’t find a physical buttons but it has two sensors, one on each side. When pressed simultaneously (essentially squeezing the band), it powers on and we were presented with the UI. Thanks to the tall display, there is plenty of info at glance – that was the main goal for Amazfit after all.
Also, the X has everything you might need from a smartband – weather updates (synchronized with the phone), music controls, a few sports that can be tracked and recorded. There’s also heart rate sensor, SpO2 sensor, stress detection, and Amazfit says it could track heart-related issues. Hopefully, our X stays silent on this topic.
We can say for sure that it’s a unique-looking device that promises a lot. We have to complete the full review to determine how the battery is lasts, can it be used for sports, and if Amazfit fixed its app, which could use some work last time we tried it.
You can order the Amazfit X on Indiegogo for $329. It’s certainly high in price for a smartband, but it’s no ordinary device either, so it might well be worth it.
