From the Press Release
Employing the attention to detail and level of craftsmanship found in luxury watches, ASUS ZenWatch brings the tradition of fine watchmaking to Android wearables. The durable stainless-steel case features an attractive layered design composed of a striking rose-gold-colored band inset between two steel layers. The case is curved for increased comfort and a stylish look, and the watch face is covered with a layer of curved glass that increases usability by providing a smooth surface for easy and responsive swiping gestures.
ASUS ZenWatch has a universal fit that comfortably accommodates a wide range of wrist shapes and sizes. Its soft, genuine stitched-leather strap provides all-day comfort and features a unique clasp design that makes ASUS ZenWatch easy to put on and remove. The standard 22mm strap is easily changeable, letting wearers create a unique look for their watch by choosing a strap in their preference of color, style, and material.
Complementing its physical design, ASUS ZenWatch comes with a selection of instantly-changeable watch faces to fit any style, mood, or occasion. Wearers can use ASUS ZenWatch Manager on their smartphone to pick a watch face and customize its color and the information it displays, and change the watch face directly from ASUS ZenWatch. ASUS ZenWatch offers over 100 watch face combinations that, together with its changeable strap, provide endless personalization options.
