Asus ZenWatch now available to buy in US

The Asus ZenWatch is now up for grabs for wearable fanciers in the United States.

The Google Play Store and BestBuy are now shipping the device, which comes in cheaper than recent rival releases like the Moto 360 and the LG G Watch R.

The ZenWatch, which runs Android Wear beneath the Asus ZenUI, is available for $199 (around £130).

It features a 1.63-inch curved display, surrounded by a stainless steel and aluminium body. It’s also got a very swish tan stitched leather strap.

It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, clocked at 1.2GHz, with 512MB RAM and 4GB of on board storage.

It’s also got a 9-axis sensor, a Micro USB charging cable and it pairs with all Android smartphones running 4.3 Jelly Bean and upwards.

The ZenWatch is also a neat fitness aid thanks to its built-in bio-sensor, which can track steps, heart-rate, calories burned, exercise duration and intensity. However, the watch gets its name from the relaxation level feature, which i gives users a zen score based on their heart rate and is displayed on the watch face.

Unfortunately, folks in the UK are going to have to wait a little longer, with the Google Play listing stating “ASUS ZenWatch is not available in your country.”

Stay calm, everyone.
