The most affordable Android Wear

Asus has just started selling its ZenWatch 2 and US customers can get one for $150.

There are two versions of the watch. There is the larger 49mm version in navy blue and a smaller 45mm version in a lighter blue and a "hue of Aqua colours." The watch is built from silverish looking metal and the wrist bands will will be coloured.

They are powered with the same Snapdragon 400 that we have found in every bit of Android powered watch which has shipped in the west.

The larger 49mm model has a 320 x 320 resolution and 278 pixel per inch density while the smaller 45mm version has 280 x 280 with 273 Pixel per inch resolution. It is interesting to see that the watch has AMOLED Screen and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 display support. It comes with an IP67 water and dust resistant certificate too.

 Asus has installed 512MB RAM and 4GB storage into this wearable device. The larger watch has 400 mAh battery while the smaller has 300 mAh and is probably lighter.

This is nothing spectacular when it comes to the specification, but it is at least cheaper than the competition. The watch looks good and fancy enough but as with any other Android wear you will have to charge it every other day or not sooner. Google Play store starts selling them soon, and other outlets are expected to follow.
