Asus ZenWatch review

 

Easy on the eyes and wallet, but can Asus's premier smartwatch cut it?

If you're after a stylish smartwatch that does your basic range of Android Wear things, the ZenWatch is worth a look. Beyond that, there's little difference from the other similarly priced Android Wear watches.

Asus ZenWatch review: Adding a touch of elegance

 

Of all the Android Wear devices to appear in 2014, we didn't think it would be Asus that landed with the most elegant solution.

Great design, comfortable strap, good display, some software extras

Charging needs the base, some software duplication, Bluetooth connection issues

Of all the Android Wear devices out there, we think the ZenWatch is the most elegant. It has a design that looks like a watch and using a quality strap makes a difference. Ok, so it might not be a Jaeger-LeCoultre alligator strap, but it looks good,...

Hands-on: Asus ZenWatch review: A curved glass Android Wear smartwatch that takes a stylish approach - Pocket-lint

 

How do you go from being a technology company to becoming a fashion accessory company? That's the challenge many tech companies face with the launch of

The curved glass, metal design, and clear screen make this one of the better looking Android Wear devices to be launched so far, and from what we've seen so far it looks and performs better than the Gear Live or the G Watch.

Asus ZenWatch Review

 

The ZenWatch is Asus's first venture into the smartwatch industry, and we were hoping for big things. In an industry overpopulated by Android Wear powered smartwatches, how does the ZenWatch stand out? Read our Asus ZenWatch review to find out whether...

The Asus ZenWatch isn’t the most impressive smartwatch we’ve ever used, but it’s not the worst either. It’s a very good-looking, stylish smartwatch – something that’s a rarity in the smartwatch industry. The lack of buttons is definitely an issue,...

Asus ZenWatch

 

One of the best-looking Android Wear watches, but not the smartest

One of the best-looking smartwatches so far ; Slim, premium build ; Battery life among the best for Android Wear

Android Wear still poorly optimised ; Lack of buttons hampers use ; Screen unreadable in bright sunlight

Unfortunately, this very property also makes the display next to useless in bright sunlight. If you crank the brightness up to maximum it’s just about visible, but then this is too bright for most other occasions and it drains battery. Android Wear...

Asus ZenWatch Review: In Depth

 

We review Asus' first foray into smartwatch territory, the sexy (and very masculine) Zenwatch, which proves to be one of the least annoying and most enjoyable wearables to date.DesignEven us self-confessed…

Sleek curvy design ; Funky features

Stupid dock ; Battery life still 'meh'

Asus’ Zenwatch is one of the best first-gen wearables we’ve rocked on our wrists, offering a premium design that’s miles ahead of most smartwatches. It doesn’t skimp on features either, with everything from remote camera control to heart rate...

Asus ZenWatch: An Android Wear smartwatch that achieves fashion zen [REVIEW]

 

Asus's ZenWatch is a nice looking smartwatch that fits well, and that alone helps it stand apart from the crowd.

Lovely design ; Great price

Middling battery ; Big size ; Minimal software tweaks

The ZenWatch is one of the nicer looking smartwatches around, but otherwise doesn’t do too much to stand out from the rest of the first-gen Android Wear pack.
