After Oppo and Xiaomi, Vivo has now also joined the party by foraying into the wearable market with its Vivo Watch. The company’s first smartwatch comes with numerous specs such as AMOLED panel, NFC, heart rate, and blood oxygen tracking. Just like Oppo Watch, this one also comes with dual chipsets. Like most smartwatches out there, Vivo Watch comes in two different sizes namely 42mm and 46mm.
The former packs a 1.19-inch AMOLED display with 390 x 390 pixels resolution while the latter features a 1.39-inch screen with a resolution of 454 x 454 pixels. Both the wearables come with aluminum casing. In terms of design, the smaller one gives more of a battle look with gray and brown colors while the bigger brother brings a brushed metal look in silver and black.
Vivo Watch runs on dual-chipset for dual usage!
Under the hood, Vivo Watch runs on two chipsets in which the one targets the fully-fledged usage while the second if for the low powerhouse. We have seen a similar thing with Oppo Watch. The primary chipset is the ST while the secondary one is Apolo low-power SoC. The low-power chipset is perfect for when you want to use your watch for basic tasks and wants to save some battery along the way.
According to the brand, the 42mm variant can last for about 9 days on normal usage while the larger 46mm offers 18 days. For assistant, Vivo has also added a Jovi digital assistant that users can make use of. There is a 2GB built-in storage so you might not be able to store all your favorite songs or podcasts. There are numerous exercise and sports mode as well, the same ones that we find in almost all the smartwatches.
Vivo Watch also comes with GPS connectivity so you can also use it for navigation purposes and more. We’re also looking at a 5ATM water resistance rating as well. The wearable can be connected to both Android and iOS via the companion’s app.
Enough with all these technical mumbo jumbo, it’s time to take a look at the official pricing. Vivo Watch comes with a price tag of CNY 1,299 (i.e. $191). The sale for the same will kickstart from September 28. Furthermore, there are around four different watch straps in three color options namely brown, orange, and black silicone.
