IFA 2016 has just begun, and there’s a lot more going on already. The Asus Zenwatch 3 is something we’ve been waiting for since long.Smartwatches were only considered smart but not so good-looking. Well, Those days are finally over as this bad boy has been officially announced a few minutes back at the event.
SO, WHAT THE ASUS ZENWATCH 3 HAS?

Asus decided to go with a round display as most companies are switching to it, unlike previous Zen Watches which had a square form factor.

In case if you’re wondering about the screen protection then Asus has got it all covered by including a Corning Gorilla Glass protection on the top. The watch is made up of 316L stainless steel and has got three color options to choose from: Gunmetal, technologyRose Gold, and Silver. All the variants come with a touch of a rose gold bezel.The Zenwatch 3 comes preloaded with more than 50 watch faces and runs on the latest version of the Android Wear.
It comes equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 SoC, a chip which is specifically designed for smartwatches.Just like the other companies it has 4GB of internal storage along with a 512MB RAM which must be enough for all the tasks.
The Game-Changing feature of this watch is that it charges from 0 to 60% in just 15 mins as it uses Asus HyTechnology.With a 340Mah battery, this is fast enough as compared to other Smartwatches which take around 2hrs to full charge.
NOW, COMING TO THE PRICING!
This watch will cost 229 EUR which roughly translates to 260 U.S dollars.Although Asus hasn’t revealed the exact launch date, it should be launched later this year.
