ASUS VivoWatch overcomes ZenWatch problems, at a price

By Peter Chubb - Apr 14, 2015

We have been hearing for months that ASUS was planning on releasing a new smartwatch, and that it would be called the VivoWatch. Latest reports would suggest that more details will be shared today and will overcome one of the biggest problems of the ZenWatch.

The new device already got its launch, although ASUS was not too forthcoming with the VivoWatch specs and features. However, we do know that it is to come with a 10-day battery life, which is far better than 1-2 days for the ZenWatch.

Paying the price – While the battery life for the VivoWatch is far greater than that of the ZenWatch, it does come at a price, as the new wearbale will be more like a fitness tracker than a full-on smartwatch. This could be an issue for some consumers, although at least that means ASUS is offering its customers a choice, seeing as though the ZenWatch is not that old and will cotinine to be sold.

We said earlier that not much is known about the new VivoWatch, although recent rumors suggest that it will come with an IP67 rating, meaning it will be dust and water resistant. This means you will have a greater peace of mind, especially as this will be marketed as a fitness device.

There is currently no word on the price or release date, although we do hope to hear something today, as it is the start of Milan Design Week and has already been teased.
