Today at IFA in Berlin, Asus has launched its latest Android Wear Smartwatch Asus ZenWatch 3 which now comes with an all new circular design, rather than the previous rounded rectangular shape.
This new smartwatch is crafted from jewellery grade 316L stainless steal and it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor along with 512MB of RAM and it has 4GB of internal storage. It comes with a 1.3 inch AMOLED display with 400 x 400 pixels resolution and it is using Corning Gorilla Glass curved panel.
ZenWatch 3 is not only the first watch from Asus to be coming in circular design, but it is also world’s first ever smartwatch to have three buttons. The top and bottom button could be configured for providing quick access to your favourite apps, whereas the centre button works as a normal button, as we have seen on many other smartwatches running Android Wear OS.
In terms of design this watch is having diamond cut bezels and it is coming with leather straps which are made from Italian leather. Asus ZenWatch 3 is also IP67 certified which means it is water and dust resistant.
It packs a 340 mAh battery and Asus claims it can provide up-to 2 days of battery life. It is capable of charging up-to 60% in just 15 minutes thanks to HyperCharge. Moreover, it comes with an additional battery pack of 200 mAh that you can attach to the watch any time to get additional 40% of power.
Asus ZenWatch 3 will be available from October, 2016 in three colour options Gun Metal, Silver and Rose Gold starting at 229 EUR which translates to $225 USD or Rs. 17,100/- Indian rupees.
