Asus officially unveiled the ZenWatch 3 earlier this year, and now this Android Wear-driven smartwatch is finally available for purchase. The good news is that this smart wearable was originally scheduled to hit the market in early November, but online sales began yesterday already. However, shipments are expected to begin in a few weeks.
This round smartwatch is the first ZenWatch to use this shape but is also the first Android Wear smartwatch to feature a touchscreen display and three physical buttons on the side. Its specs include the brand-new Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, 512 MB RAM, 4 GB internal storage, and a 340 mAh battery that provides one day of autonomy.
While the price mentioned earlier this year by various sources was around $255 USD, the ZenWatch 3 is now available for $229 USD. B&H Photo only offers the dark brown leather band variant for purchase at this time, while the official Asus web store currently shows that the smartwatch is temporarily out of stock.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
