At the presser in IFA 2014 Berlin, ASUS announced its smartwatch, the ASUS ZenWatch. This is the company’s first wearable device produced in partnership with Google and runs Android wear. The watch comes with a version of the ASUS ZenUI user interface developed specifically for ZenWatch. This watch can pairs seamlessly with a smartphone running Android 4.3 or higher to provide relevant and useful information and also to serve as a personal wellness manager in conjunction with the ASUS ZenUI Wellness app.
The ZenWatch comes with soft genuine stitched-leather strap and quick-release clasp. The watch has a 2.5D curved glass with a smooth and responsive touch experience. ZenWatch comes with a selection of instantly-changeable software watch faces, allowing users to customize ZenWatch easily to match their style.
The watch also comes with a range of practical smart features, including Watch Unlock, Tap Tap, Remote Camera, Cover to Mute, Find My Phone and Presentation Control. It has seamless integration with ASUS ZenUI and also adds even more functionality for owners of ASUS smartphones.
There is also an integrated 9-axis sensor and ZenWatch is also a fully-featured wellness manager. The companion ASUS ZenUI Wellness app lets users monitor and track a range of wellness statistics including steps taken, calories burned, activity duration, heart rate, exercise intensity and relaxation level. Users can set and monitor personal fitness goals with ease, and see their progress at a glance.
The Zenwatch is priced at 199 Euros and there is no mention on the availability as of now.
