Vivo is expected to launch a proprietary smartwatch on September 22nd, indicating a circular watch that comes in two different sizes.
A tipster shared photos of the upcoming Vivo smartwatches in a Weibo post and a poster with the start date.
The Bluetooth and 3C certifications have revealed that the model numbers W2052 and W2056 belong to the upcoming Vivo watch, which NDTV says will hit the market on September 22nd.
It is speculated that the Vivo watch will have an AMOLED display, a stainless steel case, and leather or silicone straps. Furthermore, rumor has it that it has two different sizes: 42mm and 46mm.
One of the most exciting features of the upcoming watch is the battery, where Vivo draws 18 days of battery life when fully charged.
The watch is said to contain all of the basic fitness tracking functions and a heart rate monitor. The clock is available in three different colors; orange, black and brown.
The Vivo watch’s connectivity is powered by Bluetooth 5.1, which is great news for consumers. In addition, payments via multifunctional NFC are supported.
In a report from Gizmo China, the point of sale revealed that this watch does not support Google’s WearOS. Instead, like the Oppo watch, which has its own operating system, Vivo looks forward to optimizing FunTouchOS.
In addition, the long-awaited watch offers a tracking function that can be used for various sports activities. It is also safe to take the watch with you for swimming as it is waterproof.
Prices and availability
According to reports, the Vivo watch is selling at a starting price of around 1,000 yuan, or $ 146.
However, for global consumers, it would be disappointing if Vivo also rated the Vivo watch like the Oppo watch. The Oppo watch started at $ 200 in markets like India, while the European version is now priced at £ 369 or $ 484.
The Vivo watch is being introduced for the first time in China and its global launch is not yet known. The expected price would be under $ 150, which is a very competitive price for a watch with the above specifications.
In addition, there are also leaks with the introduction of the OnePlus watch. Rumors suggest a similar design language as the Vivo watch.
BBK’s Chinese tech giants are also launching their smartwatches on the global market to compete with Samsung and Apple.
