Asus ZenWatch 3 to launch next month for 229 USD

Back in 2014, Asus introduced its first wearable device, named Asus ZenWatch with Google Now technology that enabled it to receive voice commands from users. Last year, the Taiwanese Company launched the second generation, ZenWatch 2, which failed to deliver an overhauled design. However, Asus ZenWatch has been one of the most anticipated Android-based smartwatches since 2014. This year, Asus unveiled the third generation ZenWatch with many new features that give users a solid reason to upgrade.

Unlike previous models, this year’s smartwatch sports a stunning design with a jewelry-grade 316L stainless steel body, making it one of the most desired smartwatches in the competitive smartwatch market where Apple Watch dominates.


According to Asus, its ZenWatch 3 will be released next month and the new smartwatch will sport a 229 USD price tag, which is quite the bargain when compared with the prices of other smartwatches on the market right now. For example, Samsung’s next Gear S3 has been long rumored to be priced at 400 USD or more. Apple Watch starts at 369 USD and Huawei Watch is available for 250 USD or more.

Asus ZenWatch 3 are the first Asus’s smartwatches to feature round faces which offer a more appealing and attractive look than the previous iterations. The 1.39 circular AMOLED display sports a resolution of 400×400. Under the hood, the new smartwatch is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2 and an impressive 340 mAh battery life. The Android-based smartphone also features 512 MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. Other specs include Bluetooth 4.1 and IP67 certification. Asus ZenWatch 3 also features 50 pre-loaded watch faces and  the ability to track activities. The smartwatch is expected to get Android Wear 2.0 in the future.

There will be more Asus products to come in October and November. The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer will launch its highly-anticipated Zenfone 3 Deluxe with Snapdragon 821 this month and the ZenPad 3S 10 that is launching at the same time with ZenWatch 3 in November. If you are interested in picking up a new Asus ZenWatch 3, you can get it from Asus’s website and some retailers. Asus’s third generation smartwatch is quite a big deal for a 229USD price tag. You will get a jewelry-grade 316L stainless steel body, a high-res display and Qualcomm’s wearable-optimized processor.
