Vivo released the Watch 3 alongside the Vivo X100 and X100 Pro on November 13 as promised. This smartwatch is the first one to bring the company’s self-developed BlueOS. So without further delay, let’s dive into the specifications of Vivo Watch 3, including its availability and expected price in Nepal.
Vivo Watch 3 Overview:
Design and Display
Starting with the design, the Vivo Watch 3 features a round shape with a curved display at the top. On the right is a rotating crown made of stainless steel, which also doubles as a menu button. There is another button beneath it for navigation. By the way, the watch comes in a single 46.1mm size, weighing 36 grams.
However, there are two different variants of Watch 3 in terms of straps. The leather version of it comes with twin lugs to hold the watch, while the silicone one doesn’t have any sort of lug. Furthermore, it comes in two different colors: Black and Silver.
For display, Vivo has decided to go with a 1.43-inch display for the Watch 3. The panel is AMOLED, boasts a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels, and supports always-on display. Likewise, the watch can also survive water up to 5 meters deep, thanks to its 5ATM standards.
Moreover, you get two connectivity options for the Vivo Watch 3: one with eSIM and another with Bluetooth only. Sadly, there is no WiFi connectivity. It relies on Bluetooth 5.2 with support for Low Energy (BLE). Additionally, the watch includes a microphone and a speaker for BT calling.

Under the hood, the BES2700BP chip is what powers the Vivo Watch 3. Further, there is 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM. With this, you can install a wide range of apps from BlueOS’s App Store. While we are on this subject, let’s talk about the new OS this watch operates on.
Vivo developed the Blue River Operating System for their watches, which they call BlueOS. This new OS is crafted using Rust and integrates Vivo’s voice assistant, Jovi. It also has 10 pre-built watch faces to choose from. Plus, there is an AI running coach that will assign exercise tasks based on your habits.
Besides, the brand-new Watch 3 includes 100+ sports modes. It features 8-channel heart rate and 16-channel blood oxygen monitoring using a “Star Ring” health sensor that runs 24/7. Plus, for sleep tracking, the watch uses infrared light for “non-disturbing heart rate monitoring”. Likewise, there is also menstrual cycle tracking for women.
Lastly, there is a 505mAh cell that fuels the Watch 3 from Vivo. It can last 16 days in standalone mode, 8 days with Bluetooth and notifications turned on, and 3 days with everything turned on.
