The fitness-centric ASUS VivoWatch is getting released in May
Back in April ASUS expanded its line of smartwatches with the ASUS VivoWatch. The new advanced timepiece sports a decent package of specs and promises up to 10 days battery life to users. It is outfitted with a black&white touchscreen with a resolution of 128 x 128p. The VivoWatch is running on unique platform dubbed Kood OS. It is less power-consuming than Android Wear which is the main reason why the 123mAh battery can keep the smartwatch running for up to 10 days. The VivoWatch is provided with a microcontroller instead of processor. In general the new wearable device is fitness-centric. It doesn’t support third-party apps.
The abundance of health-related sensors and features makes it a great device for tracking of fitness progress and physical activity. It arrives with LED indicator that indicates you when you are burning calories effectively, heart-rate sensor, Happiness Index (wellbeing rating developed by ASUS). The ASUS VivoWatch is water- and dust-resistant. It is compatible with iOS and Android platforms via Bluetooth connectivity. This month the smartwatch is landing on markets in Taiwan at price of $149. Later on it will be available for purchase in Germany, the UK and France.
