Asus Vivowatch

May 1, 2015

Asus announced their fitness focused fitness tracker last month, the Asus Vivowatch. Featuring 24/7 activity tracking, built in heart rate sensors, IP67 rating, and smart watch notifications, the Asus Vivowatch appears to have checked all the boxes in the fitness watch wish list save for GPS function. Idle alerts through vibration and UV sensor are icing on the cake.

The 128 x 128 corning gorilla glass 3 touch enabled display pairs with a LED indicator light that flashes green or red depending on heart rate levels during physical activities.  Asus VivoPulse technology powers the LED optical sensors that allow the Asus Vivowatch to detect and accurately measure heart rate.

The scourge of fitness trackers with smart watch functions has always been battery lifespan. Daily charging seems like a chore too tedious to fathom even though we charge our mobile devices every single day; the irony of first world problems. The Asus Vivowatch blows that problem out of the water with roughly 10 days worth of usage before a charge is required.
