ASUS launches ZenWatch 3
ASUS has introduced ZenWatch 3, a stylish and customizable wearable device powered by Android Wear. ZenWatch 3 will be exclusively available on Flipkart.
This precision watch serves as a smart assistant for Android and iOS device, providing wearers with timely information at a glance and letting them get things done with a simple touch or voice command. ZenWatch 3 is also a full-featured and extremely accurate activity tracker that helps wearers keep their lives in balance and achieve fitness goals.
ZenWatch 3 follows in the tradition of fine watchmaking with its luxurious, detail-focussed design and construction from premium materials. Its round case – available for the first time on an ASUS wearable device – has been crafted from 316L stainless steel and pairs perfectly with a choice of luxurious straps to provide sophisticated looks and all-day comfort.
ZenWatch 3 has advanced power management features. So it spends more time on wearers' wrists and less time on the charger. It is powered by the fast, yet energy-efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor and comes with HyperCharge technology that delivers incredibly quick recharge times.
Peter Chang, Region Head – South Asia & Country Manager, ASUS India, said, “The launch of ZenWatch 3 is the perfect culmination of a successful year for ASUS in India. Consumers are increasingly adopting wearables to help simplify their lives and boost productivity. The powerful ZenWatch 3 combines luxury and functionality to provide users with a device that allows them to manage their lives comfortably. We are sure that the combination of specs and design in this smartwatch will be appreciated by our users.”
Ajay Veer Yadav, Vice-President – Mobiles, Flipkart, said, “The launch of the new ASUS Zenwatch 3 will further strengthen the premium segment of the wearable category on Flipkart. With an impressive quarter-on-quarter growth of 100% in this category, we are continuously expanding our portfolio with new and innovative products meant for the fitness conscious and tech savvy customers. We are excited to be the exclusive partner for ASUS wearables and are certain that the Zenwatch 3 will be positively received by consumers. We look forward to continuing this partnership and focus on driving our efforts to provide our customers with a fulfilling shopping experience.”
ASUS ZenWatch 3 is meticulously fashioned from jewellery-grade 316L stainless steel, available in two gorgeous finishes – Gunmetal and Silver. This premium-quality, cold-forged steel is 82 per cent stronger than conventional steel to ensure that ZenWatch 3 can easily withstand the rigours of daily wear. The watch’s round case has a low-profile design that is just 9.95mm thick and accented by a narrow, rose-gold bezel for a sophisticated look.
ZenWatch 3 has a 1.39-inch AMOLED display with 400 by 400 resolution and 287ppi pixel density for deep blacks and pin-sharp details that make each watch face look its best. The display is covered with gently curved 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass that facilitates smooth swiping gestures and provides tough protection against scratches and damage.
ZenWatch 3 comes with a strap made from a choice of stitched Italian leather or high-quality rubber.
With its assortment of case finishes, strap materials, and colour choices, ASUS ZenWatch 3 provides wearers with a variety of personalization options for creating a truly unique watch. Additionally, ZenWatch 3 comes with more than 50 software watch faces that can be changed using the ZenWatch Manager smartphone app, letting wearers easily customize their watch to fit any style, mood, or occasion.
ASUS ZenWatch 3 is a full-featured activity tracker that helps wearers stay motivated and improve their fitness. The all-new ZenFit app automatically counts wearers' steps throughout the day with industry-leading 95-per cent accuracy, and it also provides reminders to move after periods of inactivity. Additionally, ZenFit tracks a range of activities, i.e. walking, running, push-ups, sit-ups. IP67 water resistance makes ZenWatch 3 impervious to sweat and inclement weather.
ASUS ZenWatch 3 is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 (APQ 8009w) processor that is specially designed for wearable devices. It consumes 25-per cent less energy than the Snapdragon 400 processor it replaces, giving ZenWatch 3 dramatically improved battery life of up to two days. ZenWatch 3 also features exclusive HyperCharge technology that provides industry-leading charge times – just 15 minutes to reach a 60-per cent charge – and a convenient magnetic charging connector that snaps into place automatically. An optional battery pack is also available, providing 40-per cent more battery life.
