Asus VivoWatch promises 10-day battery life

But have some features been sacrificed in the process?

Asus VivoWatch promises 10-day battery life

Asus has revealed details of the new VivoWatch ahead of its full unveiling at Milan Design Week, due to start 14th April.

The VivoWatch is a fitness-focused watch, and claims to have a mammoth 10-day battery life. Other specs include a stainless steel body with IP67 rating to fend off dust and water, and a heart-rate and sleep monitor. 

The future's black and white

But whereas its previous smartwatch offering the ZenWatch ran Android Wear, the VivoWatch will instead use Asus's own platform. It also appears to have lost a colour screen, instead being fitted with a black and white display - most likely to assist with power saving. 

The VivoWatch will go up against some formidable competition when it’s released, namely the £180 Pebble Time Steel.

Pricing for the VivoWatch has yet to be announced, but will likely come in the next few days. We’ll update this story as and when we find out.
