At the launch of the Lenovo Z5 last month, the electronics maker also announced a new hybrid smartwatch – the Lenovo Watch X. Starting today, the new smartwatch will now be available for purchase.
The Watch X is an advanced version of the Watch 9 it announced this year. Unlike the latter, the Watch X, in addition to having a mechanical dial, also has a small OLED screen where it displays parameters like the heart rate, resting heart rate, and air pressure (Plus version).
For the Watch X, Lenovo uses 316L surgical grade steel for the body of the watch and a sapphire crystal watch face. It also ditches the silicone straps of the Watch 9 for a Milanese strap with a magnetic clasp. An optional leather strap variant is also expected to be available later.
The Watch X is waterproof, has a 6-axis sensor, and displays its readings in real-time. The watch hands and markings of the mechanical dial are luminous so you can view the time in the dark. Since it measures more parameters than the Watch 9 and has an OLED screen, its battery life is shorter. Lenovo says it will last 45 days on a single charge.
The watch connects via Bluetooth and works with the same Lenovo Watch app as the Watch 9. It’s waterproof, has a sedentary reminder, a find-your-phone feature, and vibrates when you receive a notification.
The Lenovo Watch X goes on sale today on JD.com for ¥299 (~$45). There is no info on when the leather variant and the Plus variant will be available for purchase.
