Battery life—it was one of the downsides of the Asus ZenWatch that prevented it from realizing its full potential. This time around, Asus is trying things differently with its new VivoWatch wearable device. Fitness buff will love its health-tracking features, while the rest will love its 10-day battery life.
So instead of wearing an Android Wear device, most products of which that are available today can only last up two days, you can have the Asus VivoWatch instead (whose preinstalled operating system hasn’t been disclosed). It only becomes a dead weight on your wrist after 10 days. That’s a longevity feat that even the reported 18-hour battery life of the Apple Watch can’t beat.
Asus hasn’t fully revealed the specs of the VivoWatch. All we know besides the battery life is that it comes packing heart-rate and sleep tracking sensors on a stainless steel body. It also has IP67 certification for water and dust resistance. We’ll learn more about the VivoWatch during its official announcement.
