Xiaomi took advantage of the success of its smart bracelets to announce the new Amazfit X, a new wearable capable of measuring oxygen in the blood and offering a continuous measurement of heart rate.
Xiaomi has launched a new smart bracelet capable of measuring oxygen in the blood and with a battery that lasts a whole week. Known as Amazfit X, this device is located under one of the sub-brands of the Chinese manufacturer and can currently be booked through the Indiegogo platform for just 137 euros in promotional price.
In terms of specifications, the Amazfit X has a curved 2.07-inch AMOLED screen with HD resolution (326 PPI) and brightness of 400 nits, which according to the manufacturer, ensures that we will be able to view it without problems in the sun’s rays. The 92-degree curvature design fits on the wrist and according to Xiaomi, it is capable of displaying 250% more information than an Apple Watch Series 4.
The Amazfit X follows the trend of other wristbands such as the Mi Smart Band 4 that leave aside the physical buttons and instead it is controlled with a touch-sensitive sensor located on one of the sides. In addition to that, a battery is offered that can operate for a full 7 days without sacrificing essential functions, such as the heart rate monitor, message, and call notifications or training track.
One of the most striking features when compared to a Mi Smart Band 4 is that it offers a magnetic charger that fits the sensor and does not require additional steps to disconnect the face.
Heart-focused features of The Amazfit X
Amazfit X offers the possibility to measure oxygen in the blood. This is possible by means of an infrared light test that does not require finger pricking. The ECG mode ensures continuous 24-hour heart rate monitoring thanks to a large sensor located on the inside.
Xiaomi targets the public that performs physical activities and not the one that is looking for a substitute for the smartwatch. Proof of this is the presence of 9 training modes among which are swimming, gym, cycling, and walking. It is important to add that there are modalities of stationary bike and treadmill, so it would be perfect for this stage of confinement.
Other options include syncing with fitness apps , notifications that let you know if you’ve spent a lot of time sitting, and a system that assesses our exercise performance, monitors our stress level and sleep routines
The Huami Amazfit X can be purchased at a price of 137 euros directly from Indiegogo. The estimated delivery date is August 2020 and shipments are offered anywhere in the world at no additional cost.
