This new smart wearable is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor and is available in three different skins.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
