The latest smartwatch out of IFA is Asus' spiffing new ZenWatch, touting plenty of juicy features...
Asus has entered the smartwatch fray with its brand new Asus ZenWatch, a fitness tracking, screen toting super-stylish wearable.
The much-teased timepiece has finally landed at this year's IFA tradeshow, and with it comes a raft of solid specs and a dazzling exterior.
The watch makes use of a sizeable 2.5-in curved screen, with over 100 different display options available. It also ships with a strap made from Italian leather that sports a quick-release clasp.
There's plenty of features built into the ZenWatch. First up is the 'what's next' notifications system that alerts wearers to approaching calendar appointments.
Next is the 'tap-tap' find my phone feature. Asus says two taps on the ZenWatch will make your smartphone ring, putting a stop to mislaid blowers.
There's also Remote Camera, which lets you strategically place your smartphone somewhere and then take snaps remotely via the watch's viewfinder - a must for budding 007s.
It also doubles as a clicker for slide presentations, so you can wow boardroom meeting attendees with your wrist-borne wizardry.
The ZenWatch also runs a proximity sensor that lets you mute incoming calls by placing your hand over the watch face. A tech'd up version of 'talk to the hand', if you will.
There's also the usual fitness trackers, including a heart-rate sensor which pairs up with a relaxation monitor to let you know how chilled out you are in percentage form. Nifty.
Asus says its shiny new kit will retail at £199), which seems a surprisingly fair mark-up all things considered. Pre-crimbo release assured.
