ASUS presents ZenWatch smartwatch

Smartwatches are the latest tech trend but at the moment not so many companies manufacture them. Despite this fact ASUS has always been on the list of becoming a smartwatch maker as the acclaimed Taiwanese company just cannot miss this new and lucrative market. Now ASUS has officially become such thanks to the introduction of the ASUS ZenWatch – a first for the company.

Although this is the first ASUS smartwatch, the ZenWatch is a stylish device. It is built on the Android Wear platform and features a curved and rugged display, a steel chassis and leather wristlets. The device is based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor at 1.2 GHz and has 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory, Bluetooth 4.0 and a heart monitor sensor. The display of the smartwatch is 1.63 inches big and works at 320 x 320 pixels. In addition to that it is based on AMOLED technology. A 369 mAh battery powers the device. Apart from the hardware the ASUS smartwatch comes with a number of software features such as Find My Phone, Remote Camera, Presentation Control and others.

The ZenWatch will be on the market in Q3 2014 but there’s no precise date. If we look at the calendar, though, we will see that this means that the ZenWatch will be on the market this month. The new ASUS smartwatch will cost EUR 199, which isn’t that much given what it has to offer.
