The VIVO Watch is also expected to offer 42mm and 46mm dial options. The smartwatch should provide about 18 days of battery life. The device may support 5W charging and run on the FunTouchOS version of the smartwatch.
Our protagonist should provide users with a 5ATM waterproof performance. It also includes other features such as NFC payment, Bluetooth 5.1, optical heart rate sensor, blood oxygen level tracker, and independent music playback support.
The price of the smartwatch maybe around 1,000 yuan ($147). And we are waiting for up to 4 color variants.
Will VIVO Watch Succeed?
Generally, this is an expected move. All competitors of this brand have already launched their own models or are going to do this. And we are not talking about Xiaomi and Huawei that have been in this field for a while. OPPO and others are already obviously showing their intentions on this market. So of VIVO doesn’t launch its own smartwatch, it will lay behind its competitors. Moreover, apart from the smartwatch business, there is another trend. The aforementioned traditional smartphone makers are releasing their own TVs. So we can say smartphones are going to yield their position to other types of smart products. And if the larger screen products will implement the same functions in homes and offices, smartwatches and smartbands are going to take these functions on them outdoors.
As IDC data shows, in 2019, global smartwatch shipments were increased by 22.7% year-on-year to 92.4 million. The sales of Apple Watch alone reached more than 30 million units, exceeding the shipments of all Swiss watch brands. So we can admit smartwatches have become a competing place for everyone as part of the smart ecosystem. But VIVO is currently the only one of the top four technology manufacturers in China that has not yet launched smartwatches. Well, this is going to be fixed soon.
