Amazfit X curved smartwatch breaks cover – but it’s still tinged with mystery

After being teased as a concept device back in September, a new Indiegogo listing suggests Huami will soon launch the curved Amazfit X fitness tracker.

The parent company unveiled the new-age design well before its most recent wares from CES – the Amazfit Bip S and Amazfit T-Rex – but it would appear it isn’t done launching new devices.

However, those who visit the listing can currently only register their interest, and, as of yet, there’s no firm details on when the release date will be.

When we first saw the Amazfit X in September, the company did confirm it would launch in 2020 – and, unfortunately, that’s not been narrowed down in the latest development, despite the existence of a listing suggesting it could be sooner rather than later.

It’s also not clear whether this will indeed be crowdfunded by the community, or whether Huami is simply using the platform as a way to drum up some interest and secure pre-orders for the tracker.

Either way, the device looks to be in the same condition as we saw a few months ago – though whether we would class it as a smartwatch (like Huami is doing) or a fitness tracker is still undecided.

The X includes no physical buttons on the band or face. Instead, there’s hidden “electronic” buttons to the side of the display, which we’d assume are going to be the capacitive kind.

That display is sized at 2.07 inches, with a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch (PPI). We also know battery details already, with the device housing a curved 220mAh unit that should manage a week of life between charges.

Stay tuned – we’ll be updating this story when the Amazfit X Indiegogo page has more information added.
