Asus ZenWatch 2 review

 

Asus has topped its previous ZenWatch with a much better one

The Asus ZenWatch 2 isn't nearly the best smartwatch out there. But, with a comfy fit, an affordable price tag and (albeit limited) iPhone compatibility, it's far better than what was expected.

Asus ZenWatch 2 review: Suave without the spending plan - Pocket-lint

 

All in all, the ZenWatch 2 is a great starter smartwatch. Who knows, maybe by this time next year there will be 100 other great-looking smartwatches that

Mostly stainless steel body, plenty of case and strap choices, fast charging, two size options, great value

Plastic back plate, no heart-rate monitoring or GPS, same display as predecessor, thick bezel, stiff leather strap

Asus has kept down the cost of the ZenWatch 2 by smartly cutting some corners compared to its predecessor, such as foregoing an all-metal design in favour of a plastic back plate and omitting sensors like GPS and a heart-rate monitor.

Asus ZenWatch 2

 

The ZenWatch 2 is Asus' second attempt at putting Android Wear on your wrist. 2014's ZenWatch was an attractive entry in the expanding smartwatch market, with its refined design and low price. But it was let down by the lack of a physical button and a...

Superb design and build quality ; Improved Android Wear implementation ; Affordable price

Lack of heart-rate monitor ; Limited iPhone compatibility

Asus ZenWatch 2 review

 

The Asus ZenWatch 2 is a great-looking smartwatch with good battery life, but its feature set is outranked by several fitness trackers

It's also a useful way of minimising the number of dirty fingerprints the ZenWatch 2 picks up, as I found its reflective 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 panel often got quite smeary after only a few minutes use. That aside its 1.63in 320x320 display...

Asus ZenWatch 2 Hands-On Review at IFA 2015: Asus just presented us with the ZenWatch 2 at IFA 2015. We've wasted no time trying this new smart timepiece.

Improved Aesthetics ; Highly customisable design ; Solid battery life ; Affordable

Annoying charging cradle ; Screen could be better ; Leather straps feel cheap ; Occasional lag

With the ZenWatch 2 Asus looks to be the company at the forefront of making Android Wear and smartwatches as a whole, more attainable for all. The broad customisation options it’s prepared to offer consumers, premium design and impeccably low price...

Asus ZenWatch 2 review

 

The ZenWatch 2 is a competent but unexciting smartwatch that lacks the smooth performance and stylish looks of its mainstream peers. Nonetheless, it deserves at least a little attention thanks to its fair price and a battery that effortlessly lasts for...

Long battery life, slim case, affordable, works with Android and iOS smartphones

Questionable performance, limited fitness features, gigantic bezels

Asus ZenWatch 2 review: Here's one smartwatch that puts substance firmly ahead of style - Tech2

 

We review the Asus ZenWatch 2 smartwatch which runs on Android Wear platform

The ZenWatch 2’s looks belie the quality of this smartwatch that seems to exemplify the phrase ‘substance over style’. It may not be the greatest-looking wearable on the market, but if it’s a low-profile high-performance smartwatch you’re after, look...

Asus ZenWatch 2 review

 

The ZenWatch 2 is a decent purchase, but there are a lot of Android watches with slicker style and more power.

Is the ZenWatch 2 a success or failure? It does offer refinements over last year’s model in the areas of battery and customization — specifically size, color, and wristband. The ZenWatch 2 is a good watch, in fact, and perhaps even a great one,...
