The Chinese smartphone manufacturer has decided to switch things up with a new boxy smartwatch in its home country. The Vivo Watch GT is the first of its kind to feature a rectangular screen instead of a circular face and also features e-SIM support. In this article, let’s take a quick peek at the Vivo Watch GT, its features, expected price in Nepal, and availability details. 

Vivo Watch GT Overview

Design and Display 

As said earlier, the Watch GT is the only one in Vivo’s smartwatch catalog to feature an Apple Watch-like design (for now). The company has opted for a boxier form factor that is roughly 40 cm in width and weighs about 33 grams. It is compatible with standard 20mm straps and arrives in ‘Black’ and ‘White’ color options. The former ships with a rubber band while you get a more premium-feeling leather strap on the second option.

The display is a 1.85-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 390×450 pixels. It is slightly curved on all sides and housed in an aluminum alloy casing with a stainless steel crown to the right. 

Health and Fitness

Like most smartwatches, the Vivo Watch GT is filled to the brim with health-tracking features and fitness modes. Firstly, it’s packed with sensors: SPO2, accelerometer, gyroscope, geomagnetic sensor, and ambient light sensor, and secondly, BlueOS, the watch’s operating system, integrates AI into a lot of the experiences out of the box. You get your typical heart rate tracking, sleep and stress measurements, and blood oxygen tracking alongside over 100 sports modes with professional coaches and courses.

E-Sim support and More

Another highlight feature of the vivo Watch GT is the support for cellular connectivity using an e-SIM. However, we are not sure if this feature will work outside the Republic of China or if the watch itself will be available elsewhere. That being said, there are a number of other interesting things you can do like NFC and QR payments, taking notes using AI, and getting real-time updates on things like food delivery, and commutes. 

The promised endurance is up to 21 days on power saving mode with e-sim disabled but you’ll get about 3 without those constraints. If you opt out of using e-SIM and use it regularly, Vivo says the watch will likely last you 10 whole days without a refill.
