Asus have revealed some details of their new VivoWatch ahead of its rumoured full unveiling at Milan Design Week, which begins today. It’s main feature? A mammoth 10-day battery life!
While a host of details haven’t been revealed, we do know the VivoWatch is a fitness watch at its core. And that means all the usual gadgets you’d expect to come with that including a heart rate monitor and other fitness apps, as well as a sleep monitor.
The watch itself is built with stainless steel body with IP67 rating to fend off dust and water. The screen of the VivoWatch appears to be a black and white, while below it we can see a coloured LED notification light.
We also know it won’t be running on Android Wear. It will use Asus’ own software.
Asus already makes one of the most attractive Android Wear smartwatches on the market with the ZenWatch and rumours had been flying around about a second generation version of it with a super-long battery life. But now it looks like the company is moving on from the ZenWatch.
The VivoWatch will almost certainly go up against Smartwatches like the Pebble Time, which costs around £180. Pricing for the VivoWatch hasn’t been announced yet, but will likely come in the next few days. Whatever the price, a 10 day battery life is staggeringly good.
