With the new chip, the battery runs for up to two weeks in the larger version and one week in the smaller one.

The watches are also equipped with a fitness tracker, heart rate sensor and GPS and 5ATM rated, which means they can survive 50m under water.

The 42mm watch costs VND5.49 million (US$236) for the classic version and VND6.39 million (US$275) for the elegant version.

Three versions of 46mm watch, including sports, classic and special edition will retail at VND5.49 ($236) VND5.99 million ($258) and VND6.99 ($301).
