Android Wear smartwatches are gaining more and more traction and the latest to join the crowd is the ASUS ZenWatch. The ZenWatch is ASUS’s smartwatch that blends style and function with a rectangular display that looks more natural and fashionable than most other rectangular Android Wear smartwatches. Customers looking to get a hold of that display can pick it up in the US on November 9 at Best Buy. The ASUS ZenWatch will retail for $199 and will also be available through the Google Play Store at a later date.
ASUS is the first manufacturer that’s been allowed to dabble with customized software on an Android Wear device. The ZenWatch will feature some UI tweaks and added software from ASUS, something that Google was initially keeping at bay for Android Wear devices in order to maintain a consistent experience. ASUS hasn’t shown us much of what that customization will look like, so it’ll be interesting to see how it plays out on the ZenWatch.
