It is the newest member in this catalog of smart watches that continues to attract the interest of the public. The ASUS ZenWatch which arose a few hours ago offers some interesting features, and above all a competitive price.
After the presentation yesterday of the product at theeliteswatches we could spend a few minutes with the ZenWatch, which is the first of the ASUS developments in this field. The device design It has been one of the pillars of a proposal that has some features original software.
Good design and size as a condition
So far the majority of smart watches on the market offered one square screen and ASUS has also joined this format on your screen, which is good part of a frontal integrated into a metal housing and perhaps somewhat bulky.
Its dimensions, 50, translates into a finished size is 6 x 39, 9-9, 8 x 7, 4 mm suitable for a male doll, but not so much for a woman. The end result, elegant and attractive, it certainly helps your 2, 5 d with Gorilla Glass 3 curved screen, but as we mentioned the size it orients it more to the male audience.
The weight of the device is only 75 grams (25 of them to the belt), which makes it a watch that can be comfortably. Precisely the leather strap It is one of the outstanding sections of the design of the ZenWatch, and your system to Exchange belts, with a small spindle, makes this operation very simple and comfortable.
In this design, it is interesting to note that we also have with certification IP55, which means that we will have decent protection against water. You can shower with it for example and us rain over without protection will not be problem, but it is not recommended to dive in the pool or in the sea.
Android Wear with extra features
ASUS Smart Watch comes based on Android Wear, the platform that Google offers for months for this kind of devices. In addition to the typical functions of this operating system, very oriented to having a complete system of notifications and synchronization with our smartphone, ASUS have added some improvements.
The interface Zen UI of their smartphones have been adapted in various sections in the Android Wear of the ZenWatch interface, and we find several special functions at the software level. Thus, it will be possible for example Locate our phone by touching it twice. That will make the phone ring and tell us its position.
We can also hang up a call from which a notification comes to the smartwatch simply covering with hand screen, a fast and comfortable system which again helps that we don’t have to take the smartphone continuously pocket. Have a remote control for the camera the Smartphone, a control for presentations, the release of the terminal by the proximity of the clock or the monitoring of physical activity – steps taken, calories burned, heart rate – are some of the additional options.
It will be interesting to see how it behaves the ASUS ZenWatch in every day when we have the opportunity to try it. ASUS has confirmed this device will sell for 199 euros, and although there is no concrete release date what do have rinse is that it will be in stores before the holiday season.
