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: 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. Of all the Android Wear devices out there, we think the ZenWatch is the most elegant. It has a design that looks like a...

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


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

Beautifully crafted ; Well built ; Reasonably priced ; Interchangeable straps

Pixellated screen ; Lackluster fitness features ; Semi-comfortable ; Too much bezel

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


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 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.

Asus ZenWatch review


The Asus ZenWatch is the first smartwatch from the Taiwanese tech maker to run Android Wear, and it comes with a touch of luxury due to its curved display and leather strap, stepping it up in the looks department in the increasingly crowded Android...

Asus has crafted one of the finest looking Android Wear smartwatches to date with its ZenWatch, giving an elegant take on the square face with a slightly curved display and a slick brown leather wrist strap (that's 22mm wide and replaceable). It's...

There's not a whole lot to dislike about the Asus ZenWatch, as it's an attractive timepiece that can easily replace your regular watch, and still look good too. The only major complaint is that its battery life leaves us wanting for a tad bit more....

The Asus ZenWatch combines stylish and elegant looks with comfort and a touch of practicality, but it doesn't stand out in too many other categories - it's a standard affair as far as Android Wear is concerned. It's a gorgeous looking smartwatch...
