Asus Zenwatch 3 Features

  1. Design
  2. Asus Zenwatch 3 comes in an intuitive and elegant design that reveals a spectacular appearance for a modern classy smartwatch with high-end precision in design. The design inspired by the annual eclipse concept exudes sophisticated style as well as top-notch craftsmanship. The screen is 1.39inches wide powered by AMOLED technology and a high resolution resulting in a rich display. It is also touchscreen plus three buttons by the side which aids in easy navigation of the tiny screen.

    The Zenwatch 3 is made with durable materials you can trust to last, the casing comes in a top grade stainless steel material while the 18mm strap features an Italian grade leather strap which is interchangeable. The bezel is a diamond-cut material, it also has protection for the screen, in this case, 2.5D corning Gorilla glass to help prevent scratches and dust.

  3. Battery
  4. The zenwatch 3 passes as one of the few smartwatches with a desiring battery life. The battery life is great, on standby, the battery life lasts an average of about 4 days which is great. While on mixed usage the battery life can last up to about 15 – 20 hours, but it totally depends on your usage. One good thing to note is the fast charging technology that powers up a fully depleted battery within an hour. A great feature that ensures you won’t wait the whole year to charge the battery.

  5. Media
  6. The zenwatch 3 lets you store your files directly on the watch. It comes with a 4GB storage space with which you can store about 300+ of your favorite tracks. There is a loudspeaker which lets you play aloud media files directly on the Zenwatch 3. It will be a great idea to listen to your favorite tracks on the go while exercising or just recreating.

  7. Water Resistance/Protection
  8. Asus Zenwatch 3 is rated IP67, meaning it’s splash-proof and water-resistant. If the device gets in contact with water, no problem, however, that’s it, you can’t wear the zenwatch 3 to the pool as this might damage the device. The device is only water-resistant up to 1meter underwater. Certainly not a great choice for folks who wish to track their swimming activities.

  9. Activity/Fitness tracking
  10. It’s important to note, that the Zenwatch 3 is not the ideal smartwatch for fitness tracking enthusiasts. Why? Because the zenwatch 3 lacks some of the most vital and basic sensors you would find in most modern smartwatches. There is no GPS built-in, so the idea of tracking your outdoor activities such as location, distance covered and routes is out of the equation.

    Secondly, there is no Heart rate monitor (HRM) which lets you monitor your heart rate variations, however, you could still measure your heart rate with the zenwatch 3 by using either of the two methods which includes ;

    1. Android wear app.
    2. Asus wellness app.

    Simply by placing your finger on the screen, the app calculates your heart rate, but it leaves so many doubts to its accuracy. However, the zenwatch 3 comes with an accelerometer built-in which lets you track steps, the distance you covered as well sedentary moments.

  11. Notifications & Application

Asus Zenwatch is a perfect companion when it comes to notifying you when there is a notification on your phone. The smartwatch when paired with a compatible smartphone alerts you when there is a notification from native or third-party apps on your phone plus the reminders that keeps you updated with schedules, weather updates and incoming call alerts.

  • It alerts you when there is an incoming call or missed calls.
  • It keeps you updated with your schedules via it’s events reminder and calendar features.
  • There is a weather forecast data update feature.
  • It notifies you when you have a new text message alert.
  • It also alerts you when there is a new email on your phone.
  • It alerts you instantly when there is a notification from different third-party applications such as Facebook, Whatsapp and Twitter.

Asus zenwatch 3 runs on Google’s wear OS 2.1, a superb platform that gives you more access to your favorite apps. One great omission is NFC. There is no NFC, so no support for any form of contactless payment system. Besides that, there are numerous watch faces to choose from allowing you define your style.

Pros

  • Elegant and spectacular design.
  • The Straps and watch faces are customizable.
  • Built with top grade and durable materials.
  • Runs on wear OS 2.1.
  • There is a loudspeaker and microphone.
  • Fast charging, battery full within an hour.

Cons

  • There is no NFC.
  • Its not swim-proof, rated IP67.
  • There is no GPS.
  • There is no HRM.
  • Not the perfect smartwatch for fitness activity tracking.
