Last month, Lenovo unveiled their second hybrid watch line-up, the Lenovo Watch X and Watch X Explorer Edition. The first sale went live on JD.com at 10 AM today, and the Watch X was sold out in a mere 15 seconds.
The successor of the Watch 9, the Lenovo Watch X is an advanced, feature-rich upgrade over its predecessor. There are quite a few features that set it apart from the Watch 9. For starters, the dial is bolder in the looks department. It features a mechanical dial and an OLED screen While maintaining the traditional wrist watcg=h facade, the Watch X features a 316L surgical grade steel body. The sapphire crystal watch face ensures you don’t have to worry about minor scratching. It has a waterproof chassis. Currently, the watch is sold with a Milanese strap that has a magnetic clasp.
The clock hands and markings are luminous in nature allowing for better visibility in darkness. What sets this watch apart is the array of sensors it has. Gravity, geomagnetic, barometer, gyroscope, heart rate and blood pressure are the sensors present on the Watch X Explorer edition, while the Watch X will lack the barometer and blood pressure sensors. Lenovo claims that the Watch X’s 600mAh battery can last for up to 45 days. It cannot be confirmed as of now since we have not had a chance to get our hands on one. The Watch can be paired with a smartwatch via Bluetooth. The Watch X is available for 299 Yuan ($45) while the Watch X Explorer is available for 399 Yuan ($60). Lenovo has confirmed that a leather strap version is in works and would set you back by 399 Yuan ($60).
