This render was actually discovered within the beta version of the ZenWatch Manager app by ASUS that was released on Android. Given that ASUS’ other smartwatch offerings have been of the square-ish variety, this rendering is obviously the ZenWatch 3. Unlike the photos, this image looks a lot more cleaned up and sleek, and yes it looks like the buttons are still there.
Unfortunately as with the previous leaks, not much is known about the ZenWatch 3 in terms of specs and features. It’s hard to tell from the photos but it is possible that there could be a heart rate sensor built into it, which is more or less customary when it comes to wearables on the wrist these days.
We’re also probably looking at Android Wear as its choice of platform, unless ASUS decides to create their own smartwatch OS. In any case the company might have recently teased the impending announcement on Twitter which is set for the 31st of August, so check back with us then for the details.
