Asus ZenWatch launches in the UK on Dec 23 for £199


When they announced the ZenWatch back at IFA, Asus claimed it would arrive before Christmas and they’ve just about kept to their word. The stylish Android Wear watch will land in the UK exclusively at Currys and PC World on December 23rd for the princely sum of £199 (which is somewhat discerning given the $199 launch price in the USA).

Unlike some of its key rivals – mainly the Smartwatch 3, LG G Watch R and Motorola Moto 360 – the Asus ZenWatch combines the best of both worlds and sports a square display with rounded edges. The result is a stylish and unique looking watch that comes equipped with an impressive leather strap and the ability to customise it further using any standard watch strap.

The launch of the Asus ZenWatch in the US was met with a series of price drops and a lack of availability at Best Buy and Asus will be hoping the same doesn’t happen in the UK. The watch will land with the Dixons Carphone Group companies two days before Christmas and if you’re aiming to buy one as a gift, chances are you’ll need to go in-store as it won’t launch in time for Christmas delivery.

The Asus ZenWatch has the same specifications as most Android Wear devices including 4GB internal storage, a 1.63 inch AMOLED 320×320 display, 512MB RAM and a quad-core processor. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and the ZenWatch features IP55 water resistance meaning you can use it in the shower/bath.
