Asus announced the global arrival of ROG Phone II at IFA 2019, but the phone’s availability was not the only thing the company unveiled today.
The Taiwan manufacturer also introduced a smartwatch called Vivowatch SP with ECG capabilities that tracks your blood pressure and stress levels.
The watch comes with GPS and an altimeter for more precise exercise data, especially when you are in areas with poor coverage.
The gadget also comes with Asus HealthAI that should guide you based on your stats and habits and the company says the platform was developed with leading health experts.
Since the Vivowatch SP is aimed at active people, it is waterproof up to 5ATM (that 50 meters depth). The ceramic bezel reduces fingerprints, and it can match your style with the changeable bands. The company promises 14-day non-stop life for the Vivowatch SP but stays silent on which features must stay turned off in order to achieve the impressive battery performance.
Asus is launching Vivowatch SP in Q4 2019, but we expect pricing and market availability to be revealed later this year, likely when the actual launch takes place.
Zen watch would infer it had an AMD zen processor inside, lol
Not that unrelated vivo company. Asus has Vivobook on their laptop lineups since forever, so it's not weird they're using Vivowatch as their smartwatch name.
Asus should have named it Zenwatch rather than using its competitor's name (vivo).
