The ZenWatch 3, which may be the only anticipated Android Wear smartwatch release for the end of 2016, launches next month in November. This watch was unveiled in late August, but at the time, ASUS stated it would launch in October. Apparently, that is no longer the case.
The ZenWatch 3 will cost only $229, which is quite the bargain when stacked against comparable smartwatches.
ZenWatch 3 features a body of jewelry-grade 316L stainless steel, a thickness of 9.95mm, coupled with a 1.39-inch round AMOLED display (400×400 resolution). It runs the new Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset, has 512MB RAM, 4GB storage, Bluetooth 4.1, WiFi, 340mAh battery with quick-charge (0-60% in 15 minute), has a 45mm case diameter, and is rated IP67.
Other features include 50 pre-loaded watch faces, activity tracking, and will undoubtedly get updated to Android Wear 2.0 at some point in the future. You know, once Google decides to release it.
ASUS states that the ZenWatch 3 will be available for purchase directly from ASUS, as well as from many retail partners.
