Rumours suggest that the upcoming smartwatch will pack features like calorie detection, independent music playback, continuous heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen detection, Jovi voice assistance, and multi-function NFC. It is also tipped to come with 5ATM water resistance.
A leaked poster on a retail listing mentioned that the wearable will come in orange, black, and brown colour straps that could be leather as well as silicone. The Vivo Watch is rumoured to come equipped with an AMOLED display. The latest 30-second clip shows two hues on the dial that could be silver and black.
