Another huge success on Indiegogo shows people’s high interest in technology

Huami’s smartwatch Amazfit X scored a huge success on Indiegogo. The initial target of $19,700 (€18,000) was exceeded in a single day, gathering the impressive amount of $550,000 (€500,000). Thanks to the Huami BioTracker PPG sensor, Amazfit X is able to offer a continuous high precision heart rate measurement. It can also detect stress levels through the study of heartbeats.

Huami’s smartwatch, Amazfit X, is looking for funds on Indiegogo to finance its production. In fact, the initiative has already reached the initial target of $19,700 (€18,000), surpassing it in less than 24 hours by 2635% with almost $550,000 (€500,000) raised by 3,300 backers.

Those interested, therefore, can book it at the price of $149 dollars (or €137), with free delivery from August 2020 and without customs worldwide. However, once the first phase of the crowdfunding campaign is over, the price will rise slightly (from the list $329).

Amazfit X has a minimalist look

With the 2.07-inch AMOLED display curved at 92°, the Amazfit X offers excellent screen visibility while occupying a smaller area than flat screens, so users can enjoy more content at the same time. This particular curved design is enabled by the use of a three-segment motherboard, connected via a flexible circuit that adapts to the curves of the device. To make the user experience even more valuable the resolution is of 640 x 206 pixels (326 PPI), with 100% NTSC color saturation and a maximum brightness of 400 nits.

Amazfit X opts for a minimalist look, which eliminates buttons and crowns on other smartwatches and this choice offers not only a pleasant and elegant look, but it is also more comfortable: everything can be controlled by simply pressing with your finger. This is made possible by the application of a force-sensing button that recognizes the pressure made by the user and returns structured and natural vibrations.

The new Huami smartwatch is designed and built with a high quality process: to reach 92° curvature, the display cover glass is exposed to 700°C and undergoes a 6-step bending process. The panel itself, the main protagonist of the product, is then wrapped with a ring nut in TC4 titanium alloy, used as an aerospace material to increase resistance and reduce weight. Amazfit X has a total weight of 39 grams. The aesthetics of the product, with attention to every detail, is then emphasized by the dedicated dials that can be downloaded through the Amazfit app.

The smartwatch can also be used as a health tracker

Thanks to the Huami BioTracker PPG sensor, Amazfit X is able to offer a continuous high precision heart rate measurement and can also detect stress levels through the study of heartbeats. More precisely, the wearable – during the day – will provide detailed and real-time information on the user’s state of well-being. In addition, with PAI Health technology, you will be able to trace a trend of all the parameters found by the smartwatch, translated into graphs and tables very easy to consult.

According to the research results of the HUNT Fitness Study, it is necessary to keep the PAI value (traced by the smartwatch) above 100. This will considerably reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition to the PAI, Amazfit X presents the 6-axis SpO2 and IMU sensors: the former is able to measure the level of oxygenation in the blood and the latter is able to track the movements of the course. Together with these could not miss the GPS + GLONASS duo with the task of tracking the routes taken by users.

Amazfit X is equipped with a 200 mAh lithium-ion curved battery that, thanks to software optimization, is able to offer 7 days of autonomy with a standard use that includes the use of 9 sports modes, including outdoor running, walking, cycling (indoor and outdoor), swimming in the pool, open water, treadmill and fitness. The device is also water resistant up to 5ATM and allows you to keep track of every parameter even in the water.
