Asus VivoWatch BP Design
The VivoWatch BP isn’t designed as a fashion accessory, but it’s something you wear out of need. The entire body of VivoWatch BP is made of plastic which looks like one of the original pebble watches rather than fashionable watches from Apple and other top-tier brands. Interestingly, VivoWatch BP is lighter as compared to other smartwatches.
To unlock the watch, there is a button on the right side, whereas the heart rate sensor is at the bottom. You will get a square dial that hosts a small screen along with a huge border around it.
Easy Blood Pressure Tracking
Asus VivoWatch BP, without a doubt, sports an exclusive design which houses a pair of medical-grade ECG as well as PPG sensors, providing a real-time blood pressure trend-tracking data in less than 20 seconds. Doesn’t it quite easy? Of course, Yes! Anyone can easily track his or her blood pressure throughout the day so that one can stay informed about their health.
Very much, unlike so many other wrist-based monitors, VivoWatch BP doesn’t require you to sit and raise your arm in the air for measurements as it’s small in size which enables convenient operating anytime anywhere. Thus it makes hypertension management and blood pressure trend tracking much easier.
How Does ECG and PPG Sensors Work?
- The ECG and PPG sensors measure electrocardiography waves in order to determine your heart rate.
- Then ECG and PPG measure a blood flow directly from your finger and determine your pulse.
- And lastly, BP Watch precisely calculates pulse transmission time aka PPT as well as blood pressure trend by using the data collected from both sensors.

The VivoWatch BP monitors your sleep, measure your heart rate, and count the number of steps you take during the day. Health AI smart technology in VivoWatch BP analyzes your health data automatically and gives personalized advice to improve your blood pressure i.e. sleep goals and daily step.

As compared to the other wearable blood pressure monitors, VivoWatch BP consumes less power which ultimately gives you long-lasting battery. The VivoWatch BP is a 24/7 companion with up to 28 days of battery life in normal operation. It’s always there to help guide you to perfect health
The Asus VivoWatch BP solves a problem and tracks your blood pressure – good for any product vying for your attention. Although it’s too early to assume anything as it’s far away from its release.
