ASUS Announces Asus ZenWatch, might be the cheapest smartwatch

Asus has announced at a press conference in Berlin their very first smart watch, the Asus Zenwatch.  Running Google’s Android Wear, the Zen Watch takes a classical approach to watch design and boasts a stainless steel case, curved glass face and tan-coloured leather strap. This gives the ZenWatch the look of a traditional watch, compared to other Android Wear devices like the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live.

As you’d expect of a companion smartwatch, the device will show you incoming calls, messages and other notifications. There’s also a range of more advanced functionality like control over the watch face design and Find My Phone, as well as more things like using it as a remote viewfinder for your smartphone’s camera. There are a few features designed to only work with Asus’ own Android phones too.

  • Customizable watch face
  • ASUS ZenUI integration
  • Watch Unlock / Tap Tap / Find My Phone
