Three months after the ASUS ZenWatch 2 made its official debut, we’ve finally got some pricing and availability info for ASUS’s next Android Wear smartwatch.
ASUS says that the ZenWatch 2 will launch in early October at a price of €149 ($167 USD) for the 49mm that has a 1.6-inch AMOLED screen, or €169 ($190 USD) for the smaller 45mm version with a 1.45-inch AMOLED screen. There will also be a few colors to choose from — silver, gun metal, and rose — with an array of straps to attach to ‘em. Speaking of bands, the larger ZenWatch 2 takes 22mm straps, while the smaller watch accepts 18mm straps.
No matter which size you choose, you’ll get a Snapdragon 400 processor, 4GB of storage, and 512MB of RAM, all of which seem to be common Android Wear specs. Also included is Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi, and a new magnetic charging cable.
The ZenWatch 2 doesn’t boast a round display like many of its recent Android Wear contemporaries, but that doesn’t mean that it’s a bad-looking device, offering a clean face with a lone crown on its side and rounded corners. And with its aggressive pricing, the ZenWatch 2 could be a popular device among consumers that want to adorn their wrist with a smartwatch but don’t want to spend hundreds to do so.
