The Asus ZenWatch is the first smartwatch using Android Wear -- Google's operating system designed specifically for watches.

Made of metal, curved glass and real leather, it's an attractive device and is due to go on sale later this year for "around €199", although detailed pricing and availability in the UK, US and Australia is yet to be announced. That Euro price converts to around $260 or AU$280, and Asus expects it'll be roughly £200 in the UK.

It's water-resistant, not waterproof -- Asus says it'll be fine in the rain but don't take it swimming.

It has a quick-release clasp on the strap, but the watch uses standard strap connectors, so you can swap it easily for any compatible watch strap you like.

Asus has a couple of pieces of extra software for it, including Wellness, which tracks your physical activity and, somehow, your mood.

Asus was light on details at the time of writing about exactly how the watch is supposed to be able to determine how stressed you are, but I'm interested to see if it works.
