Most companies that mainly sell smartphones dabble in wearables like smartwatches, fitness trackers and VR glasses. However, Vivo, which is one of the most popular smartphone brands in the Asian market, hasn’t yet launched such products. But it looks like Vivo is now planning to debut in the smartwatch and smart glasses segments in the near future, according to trademark filings with a regulatory authority in Europe.
Vivo has filed two trademarks – one for a “Watch” and another for a “Glass”, with the European Union Intellectual Property Office. Both of them are classified under the “Class 9”, which is used for smart products such as smartwatches, wristbands, wearables, smart glasses, VR glasses, smartphones, and more. So we can expect that Vivo is planning to launch products in the smartwatch and smart glass category at some point in the near future.
Apart from the aforementioned devices, Vivo has also filed trademarks for a couple more products including “Vivo 50” and “Vivo Pad”, which also are classified under “Class 9”.
However, it’s worth mentioning that trademarks filed by the brands are not always released as commercial products. So at this point, we can only speculate that Vivo is planning to launch devices in these two product categories.
