If there’s one word I’d use to describe the ZenWatch, it’d be “imperfect.” The design is beautiful, but imperfect, because the band isn’t as comfortable as it should be. The software is good, but imperfect, due to the short fall of Asus’s bundled software and unreliable heart rate monitoring.
Even at its $199 asking price, which is affordable for Android Wear, I can’t quite recommend Asus’s first attempt at a smartwatch. Its better qualities just aren’t enough to redeem it. I went in with an open mind, but my experience... Full review
For $200, I can’t expect this watch to be perfect and it’s obviously not. But that doesn’t mean it is a bad smartwatch. If you’re looking for a budget smartwatch that won’t break the bank, you have an Android device and you prefer the design over the functionality; then I think the ASUS ZenWatch is the one to beat. It’s very customizable, you can swap out the straps and you can customize the watch face with the free ZenWatch Manager app. If you plan using this watch to send a ton of voice messages or significantly reduce the amount of time you pull your p...

The Asus ZenWatch isn’t the most impressive smartwatch we’ve ever used, but it’s not the worst either. It’s a very good-looking, stylish smartwatch – something that’s a rarity in the smartwatch industry. The lack of buttons is definitely an issue, especially with the touchscreen input being as frustrating as it currently is. It does however boast a decent battery life and enough sensors for you to shake a stick at. Ultimately though, when you put this up against similarly priced smartwatches like the Moto 360, it can’t compete. The Moto 360 has a bu... Full review
Of course, with its leather strap, you could argue that the ZenWatch was never meant to be used as a fitness device, and if you’re okay with that, it just might be the smartwatch for you. But there are still a few too many caveats to make a ringing endorsement for everyone to buy it.
The Asus ZenWatch is handsome enough, but it fails to stand out from the crowd of Android Wear devices. Google’s wearable operating system still feels like a solution in search of a problem: too many alerts just direct you to pull out your phone, so really, why bother? Unless you have a s...

If you want a nice-looking Android Wear smartwatch for around $199 (£199, about AU$252 ), the ZenWatch is another very solid option. There's nothing here that could be described as a killer selling point, and it doesn't quite stand up to the Sony Smartwatch 3 in terms of battery life or general ruggedness. Regardless, this timepiece is certainly in the top tier of rectangular Android Wear watches on the design front.
If you're sold on Google's wearable OS, our best advice would be to find a shop where you can compare this in terms of look and feel against the Moto, LG and S... Full review
All things considered, the Asus ZenWatch (Wi500Q) is a pretty impressive smartwatch. We really appreciate the high-end materials like stainless steel and leather, which make the smartwatch look more respectable and less like a hightech gadget. We also like the additional features which allow the user to remotely trigger a smartphone camera or control a Powerpoint presentation running on a PC.
The IP certification certainly could be a more stringent one: as is, swimming is unfortunately out of the question. We'd also would like a brightness sensor and better display readability in... Full review
Until now, it's been pretty easy to pick out a "best" Android Wear smartwatch. The Moto 360 from the beginning ran away with that title, but the ASUS ZenWatch now threatens to take over that top spot. And, really, there's no reason why the two can't live in the same house. A good bit of that decision will just come down to personal taste. Maybe a truly round watch just looks better to you. We could (and will) make an argument that a round watch face provides a more immersive touch experience than a square one, particularly a square one that's inset as much as the ZenWatch's display is....
