Vivo Watch 3: Vivo is anticipated to release the Watch 3 smartwatch alongside the X100 series of smartphones in China. According to a new disclosure from Digital Chat Station, the Vivo Watch 3 is rumored to support 4G LTE, allowing users to make calls and receive messages directly from the wrist, without the need for a nearby smartphone.
Similarly, the smartwatch will likely retain the circular watch face and have a circular OLED display with a new “desktop companion” function. The feature is anticipated to be similar to the one on the external screen of the Vivo X Flip. This distinctive and entertaining feature will give your smartwatch personality, making it more than just a functional device.
In addition to supporting sports health monitoring functions such as heart rate and blood oxygen monitoring, the watch will also incorporate seamlessly with OriginOS 4.0, Vivo’s upcoming operating system based on Android 14.
Digital Chat Station has previously divulged some information about the Origin OS 4.0 system, which is anticipated to be released in October. Among the new features rumored to be included in the system are large AI models, global free tiny windows, and others.
Regarding the Vivo Watch 3’s release date, the blogger stated that it is anticipated to debut alongside the X100 series of smartphones. This is corroborated by a recent Weibo post from Jia Jingdong, VP of Vivo and GM of brand and product strategy, who said that the X100 series and iQOO 12 series are “getting closer and closer” and will be announced after the Asian Games.
The Vivo Watch 2, the predecessor to the Watch 3, was released in December 2021, is presently available in black, white, and silver, and costs 1,199 yuan. It supports network connectivity via e-SIM and has a 7-day battery life in typical scenarios with this function enabled, and a 14-day battery life when this function is deactivated. Additionally, the watch has dozens of built-in sports modes and a 50-meter submersible design.
