Asus ZenWatch Finally Available to Order for $199

Yesterday, the Asus ZenWatch popped up on Google Play and Best Buy’s online store, but neither website actually offered the option to buy the device. Now, you can finally order the new smartwatch for yourself.

Google and Best Buy are both offering the ZenWatch with a light-brown leather band for just $199. Google Play notes that the device should ship within 1-2 business days, meaning you could get your hands on one by next week. Meanwhile, Best Buy promises to ship the Asus-made smartwatch in just one day, though unfortunately the retailer isn’t offering in-store pickup.

The ZenWatch serves as a sort of middle-ground between the cheap square Android Wear devices that were first to hit the market and more expensive round-faced smartwatches from Motorola and LG. Asus started with a simple square screen, but added curved metal bezels that give the ZenWatch a more refined look. From a software perspective the ZenWatch runs standard Android Wear, though Asus offers a few extra apps on top, including easy integration with the company’s own smartphones and a custom fitness tracking “wellness manager.”

If you’re searching for a cheap Android Wear watch that still looks nice this is your best option. Hit the source links below now to buy yours today.
