No, it’s not a fitness tracker. It’s also not a smartwatch. ASUS‘ brand new VivoWatch BP is something else entirely — at least, according to the Taiwanese company. They’re calling it the world’s first “true health tracker” and it’s all because this wearable can do something very special: It can accurately collect blood pressure data.
Most smartwatches these days are capable of tracking heart rate but unfortunately, you hardly find one that can track blood pressure. The most portable solution we’ve seen so far is Motorola’s Vital Moto Mod but it looks bulky and it only works with the Moto Z series.
Blood pressure monitoring is actually quite crucial as more than 40% of adults aged 25 years and older suffer from raised blood pressure. To tackle this health issue, ASUS has just introduced the VivoWatch BP. This is the world’s first health band with built-in blood pressure tracking.

Xiaomi has been doing pretty well in the wearable business thanks to its affordable Mi Band. In 2017, they have shipped 15.7 million devices making them the #2 wearable brand worldwide behind Apple.
With shipments starting to slow down, the Chinese company will be releasing a new one and they have just posted a teaser of what could be the Mi Band 3.
Not too long ago, one of our original 1st gen Apple Watch had its screen pop out like the picture above. It was out of warranty but we managed to get it replaced for free. Apparently, Apple had quietly extended the warranty for up to 3 years to address issues of swelling batteries on their first generation product.
Now it appears that Apple is doing something similar for its newer Apple Watch Series 2 that has water resistance and built-in GPS.

This is the culmination of Fitbit‘s efforts. They started out with fitness trackers, fitness bands then smart fitness trackers like the Fitbit Surge and Blaze but they never had a full-fledged smartwatch before. Then, they unveiled the Fitbit Ionic, the company’s first smartwatch.
Now, you can buy one right here in Malaysia but I’m not sure you really want to.

Looking for a smartwatch but you’re on a budget? The Xiaomi-backed Huami Amazfit may be the wearable for you.
