ASUS ZenWatch review: subtle and stylish, with a few shortcomings

ASUS's first Android Wear watch is one of the most stylish we've seen, and feels great on the wrist, to boot. Unfortunately, it suffers from mediocre battery life, an erratic heart monitor and an unsightly bezel surrounding the screen. In the end, though, the ZenWatch's balance of looks, performance and relatively low price make it a worthy choice for anyone who wants an Android Wear device and doesn't want to wait for all those second-gen models to come out.

Pros
  • Handsome, understated design
  • Feels good on your wrist
  • Inexpensive compared to competing models
Cons
  • Mediocre battery life
  • Clasp can get in the way of clothes
  • Heart rate monitor isn't always reliable
