Case & Look of Zenwatch 3:
The case of Zenwatch resemble to traditional steel watches, having 316L grade of stainless steel. Usually the steel jewellery made of the same material. The elegant look of the Zenwatch elevates it above its pay grade. Similar to traditional watches weight is lighter as well as size is close to tradition.
Color & Body of Zenwatch 3:
Zenwatch 3 has three colors available – gunmetal, silver and rose gold. We only got to see the first two of those, the rose gold option was nowhere to be found. There’s a piece of it in all three paintjobs, though – the ring around the display (or watch face, if you prefer) is finished in rose gold, regardless of the main body color. May be you can think of objectionable characteristic of Zenwatch, or according to some of them is fashionable aspect depending on others choices.
Straps & Buckles of Zenwatch 3:
Straps are of two different options you prefer. No stainless steel bracelet variant for the time being. The leather strap was nicely soft and comfortable we tried, and certainly didn’t feel like it would need months of wear to mold around your wrist. The rubber strap, soft as well but in competition to other manufacturers rubber strap is more softer. No fancy buckles in it.
Display & Resolution of Zenwatch 3:
The display is a 1.4-inch (or 1.39″ if Asus insists) AMOLED of 400 x 400 pixels resolution and, compare to huweawei watch it may looks similar to configuration. It’s distinctly larger than the one on the old Gear S2 (1.2″). The 2nd-gen Moto 360 42mm is marginally smaller at 1.37″, but there are no unsightly flat tires on the Zenwatch, obviously.
Display Faces of Zenwatch 3:
Around four dozen of pre-installed watch faces, plus point is that watch faces can be downloaded from asus. The display looks nice and sharp, though the venue floor is never a good place to judge its merits.
