Breaking down the Asus ZenWatch 2

The Asus ZenWatch 2 provides wearers with a comfy fit and an even more comfortable price tag.

The smartwatch has iPhone compatibility, which will allow you to have some of the great perks Apple Watch users receive. Although the ZenWatch's compatibility to the iPhone is limited, the smartwatch's price and design make it a great option.

The ZenWatch 2's screen shows images, apps and information in bright, crisp colours. You will never miss a single piece of information or be unable to see images due to pixelation.

The ZenWatch 2 comes in two sizes, small and large, and both offer maximum comfort to wearers. Asus offers three design types and 18 different straps to wearers, which gives you more fashion choice than the Apple Watch Series 2.

Should I get the ZenWatch 2?

Firstly, the Asus ZenWatch 2 is very affordable, yet it gives you all the same options as other smartwatches. The smartwatch uses Google Android Wear OS, which offers you an excellent range of apps.

The ZenWatch 2 is not really for the fitness freak, although you can download some fitness apps to the smartwatch. The ZenWatch 2 is more about performance and keeping you connected to a busy world.

One of the new upgrades to the Asus ZenWatch 2 is the ability to connect to WiFi. The feature allows you to stay connected and receive updates even when the smartwatch and your smartphone aren't paired.

Compare with the ZenWatch 2

Compared to the Apple Watch Series 2 the price of the Asus ZenWatch 2 is far cheaper. Although you are getting a steal, the performance and design of the watch is on par with the Apple smartwatch. Due to the three different designs and the assortment of watch straps that are available, Asus is extremely fashion conscious.

Both watches feature a two-finger touch display screen, and the clarity of the ZenWatch 2 is very similar to the Apple Watch. The ZenWatch's 4GB of memory should be enough for most users, and its ability to connect through Bluetooth and WiFi are the same as the Apple Watch.

The Asus ZenWatch 2 can connect to either an Android or iPhone, making it a dynamic addition to your smart devices. It also keeps you from buying only Apple devices.

What we think about the Asus ZenWatch 2

The biggest reason to get the Asus ZenWatch 2 is price. The ZenWatch offers much of the same features as the Apple Watch at a fraction of the cost.

The Asus ZenWatch 2 is all about being sleek, fashionable and keeping you connected. While you won't have the same workout and GPS features as Fitbit or the Apple Watch Series 2, you will have plenty of memory, a great operating system and a 48-hour battery life from just one charge.
