Asus ZenWatch 3 First Look: Circular style with extra buttons

Asus delivers a substantial shift from previous ZenWatches. New for this year is a circular display, a casing made out of stainless steel, and a pair of new programmable shortcut buttons. It’s a clean look with a dramatic flare thanks to a little strip of rose gold.

Asus is addressing battery life thanks to a new Qualcomm CPU, and a novel magnetic quick charge system. Included with the watch is an external battery which can top off the watch while still being worn.

And while Android Wear remains fairly stock, Asus does have a collection of applets which might appeal to folks looking to maximize their wearable investment.

Here’s our first look at the Asus ZenWatch 3!
