One of the biggest problems with smartwatches is their battery life. Even though the little gadgets are superior to smartphones and tablets in battery life, they don’t still run out, something that watch-wearers aren’t used to from standard watches. Nevertheless, people will be buying them and ASUS has a nice offering for them.
In our review, we became quite fond of ASUS’ rather handsome ZenWatch except, perhaps, for its two-day battery that most Android Wear watches are getting these days. Apparently the company heard us loud and clear, and it’s now prepping the launch of its VivoWatch to offer a more compelling 10-day battery life. While details are scarce at the moment, ASUS has so far revealed that its new fitness-centric wearable has a tough stainless steel body, an IP67 rating against dust and water, heart-rate monitoring and sleep tracking. Judging by the above picture, this new device — which will likely not run on Android Wear — appears to feature a power-saving black-and-white display, along with some sort of colored light indicator bar below it.
