Asustek plans to launch its new VivoWatch on its home turf next week, making
Taiwan one of the first markets in the world where the fitness-centric smartwatch will be available.
In an invitation sent to Taiwanese media on Friday, Asustek said it will host a press event in Taipei on April 30 to announce details and pricing for the VivoWatch, which was previewed at the Milan Design Week show on April 14-19.
It remains unclear whether the smartwatch will be launched in other markets in its initial wave of availability.
The VivoWatch will run on Asustek’s own operating system, enabling its battery to last longer than if run on Google’s Android Wear, which allows only limited software customization, a source with knowledge of the matter told CNA earlier this week. [FULL STORY]
