ASUS is finally bringing over their VivoWatch series of wearables to the Philippines. The brand teased on their Facebook page that their long-running smartwatch will soon be available in the Philippines. ASUS’ VivoWatch Series positions itself a cut above the rest thanks to its medical-grade health monitoring features for consumers who prefer to use their smartwatch for monitoring their health – a big contrast to the current selection of wearables that are more inclined to monitor sports performance over health-tracking.
The VivoWatch is now listed on ASUS Philippines’ website with no information on which models they’ll carry. The VivoSeries currently has three models: ASUS VivoWatch BP (HC-A04) unveiled in 2018, ASUS VivoWatch SP (HC-A05), and ASUS VivoWatch BP (HC-A04A), the latest addition being the VivoWatch SP that was unveiled in late 2019.
Unlike most smartwatches that are geared towards tracking multiple sports activities, the VivoWatch prides itself as being the first wearable health tracker to integrate a pair of medical-grade ECG and PPG sensors. The only other smartwatch that is an ECG-enabled device is the Apple Watch 4. ASUS pairs these features with the ASUS HealthAI technology that enables 24/7 health trend tracking and data analysis which can be used by the device to deliver personalized health tips and fitness tracking functions.
ASUS VivoWatch SP specs:
- Measures 53.5×46.5×14.2mm and weighs just 62 grams with its bracelet
- 1.34 inch TFT LCD always-on screen that has a 320×300 resolution

While there’s no information on how much any of the VivoWatches will retail for, the Asus VivoWatch SP is priced at EUR 299 (Php 17,380).
