The upcoming VivoWatch from ASUS is shaping up well, teasing a 10-day battery life according to the latest reports. ASUS is aiming for fitness users with the VivoWatch, a change from the usual market demands for a fashionable, but simple Watch.

The VivoWatch features a stainless steel body, IP67 dust and water rating, a heart-rate monitoring sensor that also tracks sleep, and a black-and-white display with a separate colored indicator bar below it. The display is probably one of the very big reasons ASUS touts a 10-day battery life, but with it concentrating on fitness, that would help with battery life, too. The ASUS VivoWatch doesn't need to worry about doing anything fancy, which is great for long lasting battery life.

 

Other sources are reporting that the ASUS VivoWatch will feature smartwatch-like functionality, such as notifications, and more. The biggest point of the device is going to be the price, so we'll have to see if ASUS prices the new VivoWatch competitively or not.
