Xiaomi’s future fitness band could have a display that wraps around your wrist. Dubbed the ‘Mi Band X’, this fitness band will not have a band or clasp but will instead use a magnet to fit both ends. This will be completely different from the current fitness bands Xiaomi offers under its Mi-series. It will also be very futuristic among fitness bands and trackers in general.

Details of the Mi Band X were leaked on Chinese blogging site Weibo (via GSMArena). The leak shows pictures of presentation slides explaining the product. The Mi Band X is said to offer a 360-degree display design, and it will be thin and light. It could also feature a transparent display, according to an image shared on the site. The display on the Mi Band X is also said to be scrollable.

Xiaomi is yet to announce any futuristic fitness band like this but it looks more of a concept device. The company has made concept devices such as the Mi Mix Alpha which has a surround display that wraps around the phone. As for the Mi Band X, it isn’t the first time we’re hearing of this concept. The Nubia α (Alpha) showcased at MWC 2019, attempts to offer something similar with its wearable phone functionality. It has a 4.01-inch foldable flexible display with support for mid-air gestures. It has features like Bluetooth calling, sports and health monitoring, and real-time message reminders. The wearable even has a 5-megapixel camera.

The Mi Band X would be more futuristic though, with its expected features like a transparent display that takes up the entire device. Like the Mi Mix Alpha, Xiaomi is expected to keep the Mi Band X as a concept device or available in limited quantities, when it launches.
