IFA 2016 | Asus unveils ZenWatch 3 smartwatch
Although it might look like just another round smartwatch, Asus ZenWatch 3 is more than just the first round ZenWatch. This wearable is the first Android Wear smartwatch with a touchscreen display and three physical buttons on the side.
While its predecessors were budget devices with a few premium design touches, the new ZenWatch 3 is a premium device made using jewelry-grade 316L stainless steel. Asus advertises it highlighting the fine craftmanship, its diamond-cut bezel, as well as the premium Italian leather bands. Its round display has 1.4-inches and 400X400 pixels, the processor used is the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100, and has one day of autonomy.
Asus ZenWatch 3 comes with a magnetic charger, a stand, an external battery pack, and has been certified IP67 for protection from the elements. The starting price is around $255 USD, and the list of color options includes gun metal, silver, and rose gold, but the display can be customized with six themes and no less than 50 watch faces.
