ASUS Announces VivoWatch: First ASUS fitness and wellness wearable features continuous heart-rate monitoring and 10-day battery life

By: Low Chern Lin

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (23rd November, 2015) — ASUS today announced the immediate availability of VivoWatch here in Malaysia. The first ASUS wearable designed with a focus on fitness and wellness. With built-in heart-rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and the easy-to-understand Happiness Index that shows overall well-being, ASUS VivoWatch is a constant companion that helps wearers lead healthier, happier lives. Designed to be worn all day, every day, ASUS VivoWatch has an elegant design, 10-day battery life, and an IP67 water-resistant watch case suitable for wearing in the shower. ASUS VivoWatch works together with the accompanying ASUS HiVivo smartphone app and ASUS Healthcare website to help wearers accomplish their personal fitness goals and take care of family members and friends who wear ASUS VivoWatch as well.

"ASUS is committed to innovation and is always at the forefront of industry trends, allowing us to create products that shape the future and make it better," said Joe Hsieh, ASUS Corporate Vice President and General Manager. "ASUS VivoWatch is our first exciting step into a world where users can access their fitness and wellness data at any time, and receive individually-tailored insights into healthier living. In the near future, we will provide even more solutions that will change users’ conception of what fitness and wellness products can do."

Continuous heart rate monitoring 
ASUS VivoWatch features exclusive VivoPulse technology, which uses the built-in optical sensor to continuously, accurately, and safely monitor the wearer's heart rate without an uncomfortable chest strap. With its precise heart rate measurements together with additional data such as the wearer's gender and age, ASUS VivoWatch helps the wearer exercise at the right intensity for building cardiovascular health.

During exercise, ASUS VivoWatch provides instant and continuous feedback about the effectiveness of the wearer's workout via an easy-to-read LED indicator. When the wearer reaches their aerobic heart rate zone — the beneficial level of cardiovascular exercise that effectively burns calories, strengthens the heart, and increases stamina — the LED indicator turns green to let them know they are working out at the right intensity. If the level of intensity is too high, causing the wearer's heart rate to rise to the limit, the LED indicator turns red to warn them of over-exertion.

Activity and sleep tracking 
VivoPulse technology also enables ASUS VivoWatch to precisely measure the number of calories the wearer burns each day by continuously measuring the wearer’s heart rate. While the wearer is asleep at night, ASUS VivoWatch measures their total sleep time, heart rate, and amount of motion. In the morning, the wearer can see how long they slept the previous night and how much of it was Comfort Sleep — a measurement of the most restful and rejuvenating sleep that is exclusive to ASUS VivoWatch. Wearers can use this sleep quality information as a guide to adjust their habits and get the rest they need to feel their best.

An intuitive look at overall wellness
ASUS VivoWatch features a unique wellness indicator called the Happiness Index (HI). This simple numeric score, based on the wearer's activity level and sleep quality, provides a quick, easy-to-understand summary of the overall healthiness of their lifestyle. A low score lets the wearer know that they should adjust their exercise and sleep habits to achieve optimal health, while a normal or high score provides motivation to maintain their healthy lifestyle and even try to earn a higher score.

Tools for personal and family care
ASUS VivoWatch easily synchronizes with the ASUS HiVivo smartphone app or ASUS Healthcare website, letting wearers see their full exercise history, sleep quality analysis, and progress towards fitness goals in detail. Wearers can also stay up-to-date with the wellbeing of family members or friends who wear ASUS VivoWatch, no matter where they live. By viewing Happiness Index scores, wearers can take an active role in the health of their loved ones and give them feedback as motivation to pursue healthy goals.

Reinventing Productivity with Surface Pro 4 – More Powerful, Quieter and Efficient Than Ever Before

By: Low Chern Lin


KUALA LUMPUR, 19 November 2015 — Microsoft Malaysia today announced the general availability of Surface Pro 4 throughout Malaysia.

It is not only 30 percent more powerful than Surface Pro 3 but is also quieter, runs cooler and is more efficient with up to nine hours of battery life.

Housed in a sleek and sturdy magnesium case, the Surface Pro 4 features all the ports that make the Surface lineup unique, including a USB 3.0, microSD card reader and Mini Display Port. It also features a stunning, yet sensitive 12.3-inch PixelSense display with a 3:2 aspect ratio for comfortable viewing and note-taking. 

New Surface accessories, such as the new and improved Surface Pro 4 Type Cover take Surface Pro 4 from tablet to laptop in an instant, and features a redesigned mechanical keyboard with optimal key spacing for fast and fluid typing. The redesigned Surface Pen lets you write, draw and mark documents with precision ink on one end and an eraser on the other. 

K Raman, Managing Director of Microsoft Malaysia reiterated the company’s vision and the value proposition of the Surface Pro 4, “We have received remarkable success since the launch of the Surface Pro 3 last year, and continuously drove ourselves to create the most productive devices on the planet. 

We didn’t sit on our laurels, and today, I’m proud to say that the Surface Pro 4 packs more power in a slimmer, lighter form factor. The Surface Pro 4 is perfect for people who place a premium on portability, yet require more productivity and performance out of their devices.”

And this is certainly the case with Malaysian graffiti artist, Muhammad Fakhrul Akmal (also known as Mile09) and gifted savant artist Delwin Cheah, who use the Surface Pro 4 to conceptualize and design their artwork. This dynamic duo, with their very distinct styles of art, displayed their work at the media event today. 

Bruce Howe, General Manager ofConsumer Channel Group, Microsoft Malaysia, enlightening members of the media with an engaging Surface Pro 4 demo.
Akmal’s creation featured a 112 square feet graffiti mural portraying a perfect blend of traditional and modern aspects of Malaysia, which included the iconic KLCC Twin Tower, as well as more indigenous art forms like the Wau Bulan and Wayang Kulit. “I wanted to highlight Malaysia from past to present. The Surface Pro 4 allowed me to do just that and the experience was exhilarating. The Surface pen and screen works precisely and as natural as a regular pen and paper. Once I’ve completed my sketch, it was easy for me to then visualize my artwork on a larger canvas. I also don’t have to worry about losing my artwork or damaging them as I now save them on OneDrive (Microsoft’s cloud storage system), and am able to retrieve and refer to them whenever I want,” said Akmal. 

Delwin, the child prodigy known for his meticulous detail towards nature and animal sketches, exhibited five art pieces created entirely on the Surface Pro 4. The drawings included sketches of Malaysian tigers, safaris and Galapagos Island. “I like to draw on the Surface Pro 4 because it is fun and easy to use!” chirped the bubbly 12-year old. 

Elaborating on his behalf, his father, Lawrence Cheah said, “Delwin’s fascination with nature started when he was very young. He was able to articulate his interest via art, which he sketched on regular pen and paper. Because the Surface Pro 4 is just like sketching on a pen and paper, Delwin quickly adapted and has since created a number of sketches on the Surface device without any issues. What impressed us the most was that the Surface Pro 4 wasn’t just a drawing tool but an all-in-one device which allowed Delwin to focus on his art, learn and play all at once.”

Speaking at the launch, Michal Golebiewski, Chief Marketing and Operations Officer, Microsoft Malaysia said that the Surface Pro 4 was the perfect device for millennials in Malaysia. “We are seeing an increasing number of young consumers who love to use Surface devices - Akmal and Delwin are two prime examples. In fact, 98 percent of Surface Pro 3 users would recommend a Surface device to friends and family. These young people demand ultra-portability and power at the same time, and we’ve given them what they desire through the Surface category.” 

A recent Asia-Pacific survey conducted by Microsoft with 1,200 Asian youths under the age of 25 in 14 countries including Australia, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Korea showed that 15 percent of Asian millennials already have a 2-in-1 device, while 42 percent wished to get a new 2-in-1, tablet or laptop device during the holiday season. 

Michal Golebiewski, ChiefMarketing & Operations Officer, Microsoft Malaysia, giving his welcome address at the launch of Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 in Malaysia.
Golebiewski elaborates, “Surface Pro 4 arrives as consumers – particularly the millennials – are increasingly looking to refresh their technology as they look for simpler devices that bring the best of mobility and productivity. In fact, 59 percent say they want to have touch screens on all their devices and 41 percent want a digital pen to write on their devices. The Surface Pro 4 is the perfect 2-in-1 device to meet their needs.”
