Let me get to it.
The Xiaomi Huami Amazfit smartwatch has a simple and minimalistic round/circular design with curved edges. The straps/bands of the Amazfit smartwatch is of rubber made and is of course detachable.
Xiaomi made the strap detachable because there are various available colours and you can change them to match any outfit you have on for any particular day or outing. The Xiaomi Huami Amazfit smartwatch is originally available in the red and black colour; but you can purchase additional colours of preference.
For visual display, the 1.3-inch touchscreen is in charge on the Amazfit smartwatch. The screen has an impressive resolution of 300×300 pixels. Everything you need to do on/with the Amazfit smartwatch will be done on the screen. Be it to make a phone call, check your heart rate etc., you need to consult the screen.
However, to light up the screen, a tiny and bulge-less button is located at the back of the Amazfit smartwatch. You need to unlock and power on the screen every time you intend to operate the smartwatch.
