First announced in June, the square-faced ZenWatch 2 has been a long time coming. Following on from the swish-looking original, it has added a larger 370mAh battery, which promises to deliver a few hours of extra battery life.

It has also gained IP67 dust and water resistance, while a new new UI button on the side of the device will boost the usability.

The first generation watch earned a 6/10 score from TrustedReviews back in January 2015.

It earned points for being one of the best-looking smartwatches on the block with a slim build and a premium feel. It was also lauded for having the best battery life for an Android Wear device at the time.

While the design was considered top notch, the lack of a buttons hampered use, while the screen was deemed unreadable in bright sunlight.
