The smart wearable market has seen a lot of expansion in the past couple of years, at least in terms of popularity – more and more manufacturers have continued to join the wave of newer and more capable devices, and Vivo’s latest entry seeks to do just that. Dubbed the “vivo Watch 3,” Vivo’s new smartwatch comes with its own set of tricks up its sleeve.
Perhaps one of the biggest features is the operating system that ships inside the watch – the Vivo Watch 3 comes with BlueOS, a custom wearable platform designed by Vivo. It features its own exclusive set of apps and software services, as well as its own app store. There’s also “Jovi” assistant on board, Vivo’s own smart voice assistant.
In terms of design, the Vivo Watch 3 comes with a round look that’s reminiscent of most smart wearables on the market, and it comes with two physical buttons on the side consisting of an action button and a crown-style button for navigation. The watch packs a 500 mAh battery that Vivo says can last up to 16 days, although you’d have to use the watch as a standalone device without Bluetooth connectivity enabled. Otherwise, this endurance goes down to around a week’s worth of use.
The device also comes with the usual set of hardware and software features designed to keep an eye on users’ health, including SPO2 and heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, as well as a variety of different exercise modes. The watch is priced at around $150 for the base model which comes with Bluetooth-only connectivity, although there’s an e-Sim variant which costs around $200.
