Asus ZenWatch 2 Quick Charge Edition Smartwatch Review

 

Pick me up. The Asus ZenWatch 2 looks good, is affordable and it can even be used for making calls. We reveal why it is unsuitable for athletes in our report.

elegant and solid casing, dust and water resistance, many casing and watchband options, up-to-date Android Wear, phone functionality, real-world suitable battery life, quick charge function, Wi-Fi, low price

inaccurate motion sensor, no heart-rate sensor, barely useful fitness functions, sometimes awkward handling, casing's ergonomics could be better

Asus has brought forward a solid refresh of its ZenWatch 2 smartwatch and has also responded to criticism on the predecessor, such as the lack of water resistance. The elegant and rigid casing, the diverse models among which buyers can choose from and...

Asus ZenWatch 2

 

The Asus ZenWatch 2 smartwatch is more refined than its predecessor, but Android Wear continues to lag behind the competition.

Relatively inexpensive. Lightweight. Decent battery life.

Reflective display. Too much bezel. Bulky. Stiff leather band. Android Wear remains clumsy to navigate.

Conclusions If you like the look of the Apple Watch, but don't want to plunk down at least $300 to get it, the Asus ZenWatch 2 is a decent alternative. The similarities, however, are only skin deep. Functionality-wise, the Asus ZenWatch 2 is about as...

Asus ZenWatch 2 review

 

The ZenWatch 2 is a decent purchase, but there are a lot of Android watches with slicker style and more power.

Is the ZenWatch 2 a success or failure? It does offer refinements over last year’s model in the areas of battery and customization — specifically size, color, and wristband. The ZenWatch 2 is a good watch, in fact, and perhaps even a great one,...

ASUS ZenWatch 2 Review

 

The ASUS ZenWatch 2 presents a new wave of Android Wear watch. While it still runs the same software as the rest of the Android Wear smartwatches out today, it begins to differentiate itself. Not just with a slightly different shape (as ASUS presented...

The big difference between this ZenWatch 2 and the rest of the Android Wear world is price. While you’re going to be paying $299 for the least expensive version of the Moto 360 (2015), the ZenWatch 2 starts at $129. ZenWatch 2 (WI501Q) with a band made...

Asus ZenWatch 2 Review

 

Asus is back for round two with the ZenWatch 2, one of the few that favors a square shaped design, as opposed to the round face styles that have become preferred by a number of makers. What really sets it apart from the crop is that it's sporting a...

Over half the cost of other smartwatches at $129.99 ; More choices than before: size, color & bands ; ZenWatch Manager App is a great companion app

Lacks a heart rate sensor ; Doesn’t have quite the same premium feel as other watches ; Tough to see the screen under sunlight

Asus doesn’t take any drastic measures to steer away from what they’ve done with their first Android Wear smartwatch. Yes, it’s mainly the same exact thing from before, but now it’s offering a better degree of options – though, it’s nothing like the...

Asus ZenWatch 2 Review

 

The original ZenWatch from ASUS was a breath of fresh air in the smartwatch industry thanks to its new and beautiful design. However, it wasn't without faults and the lack of WiFi was a bummer to many especially after the Android 5.1.1 update. The new...

Solid Build Quality and Elegant Design; IP67 Rating; Swappable Watch Straps; Beautiful Curved Display; Customizable Watch Faces and ASUS Apps Suite; Good Battery Life

Reflective Display; Magnetic Connector Gets Detached Easily

I’ll confess by saying that I am not completely sold on smartwatches yet. I personally prefer analogue watches. I’ve had a lot of bad experiences in smartwatches in the past particularly with the Moto 360. However, after using the Zenwatch 2 for the...

ASUS ZenWatch 2 review: A standout smartwatch at a fantastic price

 

The ASUS ZenWatch was one of our favorite Android Wear smartwatches thanks to its stylish design and affordable price. This year, the ZenWatch 2 is back with an improved design, more features and an even lower price. If you're looking for a no-risk...

Elegant stainless steel case ; Great value ; IP67 water and dust resistant ; Extra features through ZenWatch Manager app

Large bezels around the display

The ZenWatch 2 is a great evolution of last year's ZenWatch and cements ASUS' place in the wearables market. The inclusion of ASUS' own apps sets the ZenWatch 2 apart, and rather than just another run-of-the-mill Android Wear watch, you get something a...

Asus ZenWatch 2 Review: Affordable Wearable, Unappealing Looks

 

The Asus ZenWatch 2 is an inexpensive Android Wear device with long battery life and some helpful apps, but it also looks and feels like a $150 watch. Those looking for an elegant timepiece with a round face at a similar price should consider the...

Very affordable ; Water-resistant design ; Great FaceDesigner app ; Long-lasting battery ; Smaller, more convenient charger.

Clunky design with thick bezel ; Confusing ZenWatch Manager app interface ; Too many competing Asus apps on watch.

The ZenWatch 2 is a very affordable, long-lasting Android Wear watch, but its design is on the clunky side.

Asus ZenWatch 2 review: It convinced me to wear a smartwatch every day

 

It's a solid, stylish device with a battery that lasts the entire workday.

Battery lasts well into the next day ; Available in two sizes

Bezel is a bit too big for the size of the screen

If you’re into the idea of a rectangular watch, the ZenWatch 2 seriously stylish Android Wear device that lasts throughout the entire workday.

ASUS ZenWatch 2 review: Android Wear for half the price

 

ASUS's latest packs most of the comforts of Android Wear for half the price of its competition. See if it's a fit for your wrist in our ZenWatch 2 review!

ASUS’s strategy with the ZenWatch 2 –deliver reasonably good looks and solid features for half the price of the competition– resonates just as strongly today as it did last year. In a world where many Android Wear watches start at $300 and some even...
