amazfit x curved smartwatch

Amazfit is the wearable brand you might not have heard of but take note, its new band features a curved AMOLED screen. The Amazfit X looks like it could redefine the smartwatch market.

We don’t normally cover crowdfunding for technology; the vast majority don’t end up being made or simply only get sent to backers. However, we’ve reviewed a number of Amazfit devices like the Amazfit GTS and the X is not to be ignored.

We’ve seen similar devices like the Nubia Alpha but while it only got two stars in our review, the Amazfit X might actually execute the idea properly.

The smartwatch went live on Indiegogo yesterday and has already hit, at the time of writing, a whopping 1444% of its £16,098 goal. That means £232,599 has been pledged by 1,837 backers and there’s still 30 days left.

Amazfit is asking just £120 or $149 for the Amazfit X as part of the crowdfunding campaign. That’s more than half the RRP of £265 or $329 and includes free shipping globally.

It’s estimated that the Amazfit X will start shipping to customers in August 2020.

We can see why with the Amazfit X’s futuristic 2.07-inch curved AMOLED display inside a titanium alloy uni-body. It’s also got a ‘Huami self-developed BioTracker PPG’ optical sensor, and the promise of a 7-day ‘uninterrupted usage’ on a single charge.

That screen is the main headline feature of course and has a 92° curvature to fit your wrist along with a crisp 326ppi pixel density (matching Apple’s Retina quality), 400 nits of brightness and 100% NTSC color saturation.

With no physical buttons, the firm says users can “complete the operation through the force-sensing button on the right side of the watch.”

To support the design, the Amazfit X has a 3-segment-motherboard as well as a 200mAh curved lithium battery.
