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

 

The wearable market is still in its infancy. Android Wear watches began hitting store shelves just last year, with the original Asus ZenWatch one of the affordable numbers that added a touch of elegance to the party.

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.

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

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 Quick Charge Edition Smartwatch Review

 

Pick me up. The Asus ZenWatch 2 looks good, is affordable and it can even be used for making calls. We reveal why it is unsuitable for athletes in our report.

elegant and solid casing, dust and water resistance, many casing and watchband options, up-to-date Android Wear, phone functionality, real-world suitable battery life, quick charge function, Wi-Fi, low price

inaccurate motion sensor, no heart-rate sensor, barely useful fitness functions, sometimes awkward handling, casing's ergonomics could be better

Asus has brought forward a solid refresh of its ZenWatch 2 smartwatch and has also responded to criticism on the predecessor, such as the lack of water resistance. The elegant and rigid casing, the diverse models among which buyers can choose from and...
