What was first announced over at this year’s Mobile World Congress in February, the ASUS ZenWatch has finally made itself available over at the Google Play Store, after appearing on it as “Coming Soon” just a few days earlier. The ASUS ZenWatch happens to be a smartwatch that runs on the Android Wear platform, and what makes it special would be its pricing. Apparently, it will retail for $199.99 a pop, which is a whole lot more affordable than even the cheapest Apple Watch, at least according to early estimates of Cupertino’s offering.
The ASUS ZenWatch does not compromise on its performance capabilities regardless of its relatively more affordable price tag. There will be a slightly curved display that shows off the time, alongside a stainless steel design that oozes with class while an attractive leather band with snapping clasp ensures that the ASUS ZenWatch remains set on your wrist all the time. Apart from that, the ASUS ZenWatch will also bring with it customized features and watch faces which are unique to the ZenWatch.
The ASUS ZenWatch will sport a 1.63″ AMOLED (320×320) display that is protected by Gorilla Glass 3, alongside a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 512MB RAM, a 9 axis and bio sensor, and being water resistant thanks to its IP55 rating. It remains to be seen whether it will be made available elsewhere outside of the US anytime soon.
