While most people enjoy the plug-and-play conveniences offered by consoles like Playstation 4 Pro, Xbox One X, or Nintendo Switch, many prefer the customization and higher-end graphics options that come with PC gaming.

New wearables have continued hitting the market recently, but have gained little traction compared to big players like the Apple Watch. Recently Asus has announced an all-new smartwatch with a different focus than many of its competitors as a way to carve out its own market share.

Rather than sporting a shiny full-color touchscreen display or aesthetically pleasing metal casing, Asus has opted to fill its new VivoWatch BP with a litany of sensors backed by AI-based data analysis. Head below for the full scope.
