The fitness watch has a 10-day battery life, a built-in heart rate sensor and features a 'Happiness Index' that bases how happy you are based on the amount of exercise and the quality of your sleep. In addition, there is a motion detector and a UV light sensor and the watch is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.
Vivowatches don't run on Android Wear like most smartwatches, however, instead running a proprietary OS on a monochrome 128x128 pixel screen leading to the extended battery life.
This week, Asus has begun shipping the fitness watch in Europe, priced at 149 euros, significantly cheaper than higher end rivals like the Apple Watch or LG Watch Urbane.
