The Taiwanese giant has also promised whopping 14-day battery life, but it isn't known if this will be with the GPS turned on. Asus has used a super reflective low power display instead of an LCD or OLED display.

The GPS and altimeter present on the VivoWatch are meant to help you out with tracking precise exercise data.

According to Asus, the VivoWatch SP will learn your usage habits over a week and will make suggestions to ensure that you are leading a healthier life. This will be done via the Asus AI Health app which the watch is paired with.
