Asus’ ZenWatch is getting a premium smartwatch price tag.

Asus announced the ZenWatch 3 all the way back in August promising a premium Android Wear experience that lives up to its "3" suffix by the inclusion of three dials for modifying watch behaviour, rather than the more customary one or two.

That being said, it’s still an Android Wear device, and that means it has to live by Google’s rules for how such devices operate. It’s running on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor which is meant to be 25% more power efficient than the Snapdragon 400 processors found in older Android Wear devices. While it’s not strictly a swimming watch, it is rated at IP67 for water resistance, so a little rain or sweat shouldn’t bother it. Asus claims that its take on activity tracking delivers a 95% accuracy rate for step tracking, and that it will come with more than 50 customisable watch faces.

Asus ZenWatch 3: Australian pricing

Asus will sell the ZenWatch 3 through its own eShop for $449 outright. That’s a little higher than we had anticipated when it was first announced, when overseas pricing suggested around a $380-$400 price point. It will go on sale from 25 November 2016.
