Asus ZenWatch (Wi500Q) Smartwatch Review

 

Timeless design, short on time. The Asus ZenWatch offers both an upscale design as well as high-end materials without the use of plastic. The smartwatch offers quite a few useful additional features as well. Although the battery capacity is not that...

High-end materials, Watch band is replaceable (22 mm), Heart rate sensor works well, Cool application features, Current version of Android Wear

Movement is not always recognized correctly, IP certification could be better, Readability in direct sunlight is not great, Battery life is not very long

All things considered, the Asus ZenWatch (Wi500Q) is quite an impressive smartwatch. We really appreciate the high quality materials like stainless steel and leather, which make the smartwatch look more elegant and less like a high tech gadget. We also...

Asus ZenWatch review

 

Its tasteful design and thrifty price (for an Android Wear smartwatch) may turn heads, but Asus' first Android Wear watch disappoints with an uncomfortable wristband and inconvenient sensor placement.

ASUS ZenWatch review: subtle and stylish, with a few shortcomings

 

ASUS's first Android Wear watch is one of the most stylish we've seen, and feels great on the wrist, to boot. Unfortunately, it suffers from mediocre battery life, an erratic heart monitor and an unsightly bezel surrounding the screen. In the end,...

Handsome, understated design ; Feels good on your wrist ; Inexpensive compared to competing models

Mediocre battery life ; Clasp can get in the way of clothes ; Heart rate monitor isn't always reliable

There's still no such thing as a perfect Android Wear watch, but ASUS' first offering sadly doesn't do much to stand above the crowd. The ZenWatch's design is the biggest reason to own one -- it's subtly stylish and comfortable in a way that other...

Asus ZenWatch review

 

Smartwatches have a pretty bad reputation for being ugly, mini computers that prioritize function far above form. Much of that criticism is deserved — just look at the first two Android Wear...

Great looking design ; Bright display ; Comfortable to wear

Inaccurate step counting ; Short battery life ; Android Wear still needs work

Asus ZenWatch review: Android Wear made elegant

 

Large, complicated and unnecessary are the first adjectives that jumped to mind when opening the packaging of this device, and so I immediately plunged into despair thinking that the ZenWatch would be bulky and unwieldy. But after putting the Asus...

Elegant design ; Flawless assembly ; ZenWatch Manager app

Price still seems high, even at $200 ; Android Wear with ZenUI still unstable

The Asus ZenWatch is a nice device to have on the wrist, something that certainly can not be said of all smartwatches currently on the market. The design is elegant and classic, but it can still be comfortably worn in informal situations. The strap (I...

Asus ZenWatch WI500Q Review

 

If you've already decided that you want to buy an Android Wear watch, Asus's ZenWatch WI500Q should be near the top of your list because of its attractive looks, solid value and bright screen. Fitness fanatics may also want to consider the $250 Moto...

Attractive design ; Bright screen ; Good value versus competitors

Limited functionality ; Too much swiping ; Insecure clasp

Asus's first Android Wear watch has a premium design and bright screen but Google's limited operating system holds it back.

ASUS ZenWatch review

 

From the start, the Android Wear community quickly split into two factions. There are fans of the round watch, a form currently populated only by the Moto 360 and LG G Watch R. Then there's the square camp, which is everyone else. The original LG G...

Asus ZenWatch Review

 

Asus has entered the Android Wear fray, with a smartwatch that features a bold design, even though it opts for a rectangular face, and materials and looks that might make it the closest we've seen yet from the Android camp to resembling an Apple Watch....

Excellent design ; Best strap out of the box of any Android Wear device

Still too large for smaller wrists ; Whole lotta bezel

Asus easily has one of the top two Android Wear devices out there, alongside the G Watch R. Both make very different design choices, however, which means they will probably appeal to different buyers. The ZenWatch’s look is likely to be more...

ASUS ZenWatch Review: The First Smartwatch I'd Wear As a Watch

 

For years, I've wanted a smartwatch: a device that would blend style with digital convenience. Unfortunately, the first crop of smartwatches have predominantly been bulky pieces of plastic and glass for which adjectives like "elegant" seem...

Asus ZenWatch review: Fashion and function start to find balance

 

Apart from the Nexus 7, Asus isn't exactly a household name in mobile. But if the company's new Android Wear smartwatch, the Asus ZenWatch, is any indiciation, it could make a name for itself in wearables. Read on, for Gizmag's review of the most...

That leaves smartwatch-makers to differentiate their products on a hardware level. Asus has done just that, designing a beautiful watch that provides the best blend of style and technology that I've seen in any wearable.
