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.

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.

Germany has decided to completely ban smartwatches for kids, and its because they resemble more a spying device than a toy and could be a severe detriment to your child if they are kept in use.
Samsung’s Gear Sport looks like a pretty solid smartwatch. It’s got nearly all the awesome features of its bigger brother — the Gear S3 Frontier — adds swim-proofing while also coming in a body that’s both smaller and lighter.
But, our judgments so far have been based on super quick hands-on sessions with it. We didn’t really get to spend any quality time with the device and check out the accessories it comes with out of the box…until now. Here’s a closer look at the Samsung Gear Sport.
There was a lot to like about the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier. It was well-built, good looking and a more than worthy successor to the Gear S2. However, it wasn’t perfect. You couldn’t take it swimming, it was big and bulky, and — despite being more affordable than its competition — still cost RM1,399.
It would have been such a shame if people simply wrote this solid device off because of those limitations. Thankfully, if those were your biggest concerns with the Gear S3, Samsung may just have the solution for you. In comes the Gear Sport and, as far as I can tell, it’s a smaller, lighter, and swim proof Gear S3 Frontier.
Looking for a smartwatch but you’re on a budget? The Xiaomi-backed Huami Amazfit may be the wearable for you.
