Huami, a sub-brand wearable device from Xiaomi, is one of the leading wearables manufacturers. Especially the Amazfit series has especially convinced us with the Amazfit Stratos and the Amazfit Bip. Now there is a new product in the wings: Huami Amazfit X.
Amazfit X uses a proprietary 12.5mm ultra-high fall 2.07-inch flexible curved screen, which Huami says cost millions of dollars to develop. Manufacturing involved a hot-bending 3D process during which the moon-shaped glass reaches a super-arc curvature of 92° through 700°C ultra-high temperature heating and 6-bend bending. Okay, we don’t know what any of that means but it certainly sounds complex! The screen allows 244% more visibility compared to wearable devices of a similar size. It has HD resolution (326 ppi), 100% NTSC high color saturation and brightness of up to 430 nits. With these specs, readability in bright, sunny conditions should be no problem.
Amazfit X is made of metal with hidden electronic buttons on the outside and a three-segment motherboard inside a three-section base plate (this was necessary due to the shape). For a concept watch, Huami has a lot of details to provide on the Amazfit X, right up to his battery. It will be a battery with a capacity of 220mAh, which will also be curved, and should have a battery life of 7 days per charge. It also promises a brightness of 430 nits, which is not very impressive. Otherwise, the manufacturer has not yet disclosed more information. After all, the Amazfit X is more a concept than a finished smartwatch. However, as usual in any smartwatch, a heart rate monitor will be incorporated in this model and the range of functions is likely to be similar to that of the Huami Amazfit GTS. However, the user interface has to adapt to this unconventional design.
