The Asus ZenWatch 3 is yet another luxury Android Wear smartwatchCNET's Dan Graziano gives you a first look at the latest smartwatch from Asus.
The ASUS ZenWatch 3 is, yet, another Android Wear watch with a focus on fashion. The watch will be available in October in gun metal, silver, and rose gold with the choice of either a leather or rubber strap in dark brown or a lighter beige color. This year's watch features a fully circular 1.39 inch amoled screen that is protected by corning [UNKNOWN] glass. The glass is actually curved, so in addition to protecting from scuffs and scratches, it gives the watch a more traditional feel compared to some other smart watches we've seen. I also like how slim the watch is. Coming in at just under ten millimeters thick, Which makes it ever so slightly thinner than the Apple watch. The Zen watch is one of the first watches to be powered by the new Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, which in addition to a 340 milliamp battery, should deliver up to two days of use. If you want even more power, there's a 200 milliamp battery pack accessory that snaps right onto the back of the watch But it makes it quite a bit bulkier. Asus has said the watch will cost 229 Euros, which can reach to about $255 in the U.S.. For more information, check out our full writeup over at CNET.com.
