The ZenWatch 2 is a very affordable, long-lasting Android Wear watch, but its design is on the clunky side.

If you’re into the idea of a rectangular watch, the ZenWatch 2 seriously stylish Android Wear device that lasts throughout the entire workday.

Easily the best smartwatch in terms of value for money

from Digit
The Asus Zenwatch 2 is easily the most value-for-money smartwatch to buy today. While smartwatches in general have a long way to go before it'll really be useful, if your heart's set on buying a smartwatch, the Zenwatch 2 is definitely worth a shot... Full review

Huge improvement from the original ZenWatch

from Tech Advisor

The Asus ZenWatch 2 is a great smartwatch, and is definitely a worthy upgrade from its predecessor. Under the hood, the spec boost definitely makes the difference when interacting with the watch, providing a snappy experience and should compete with watches £100-200 more expensive. Visually, its a huge improvement over its predecessor, with more ‘flavours’ of the smartwatch available with a number of specifically designed accessories. The Asus-branded software brings something different to the smartwatch, especially the FaceDesigner app that lets you create your own custom... Full review

Solid build quality and elegant design

from Fone Arena
The Zenwatch 2 is priced quite well and it does what a smartwatch is supposed to better than most others. Additionally, it has a much better battery life than most others too which makes it quite tempting. If you are someone who is toying with the idea of trying out the whole smartwatch scene and someone who would like to receive notifications on the fly, then this is one smartwatch you should consider buying. Besides, it is a really good-looking one at that... Full review

This smartwatch sequel has a great battery life, but lacks power

from The Inquirer
The Asus ZenWatch 2's strong build, relatively low price and elongated battery life all make it a suitable entry point for buyers looking for their first smartwatch. Android Wear is platform-agnostic, so they won't have to worry too much about compatibility with their current smartphone either... Full review

A great-looking smartwatch with good battery life

from Expert Reviews
The Asus ZenWatch 2 does a lot of things right. It's a good-looking smartwatch with a decent battery life that's much cheaper than the competition, but it's worth noting that there are also plenty of fitness trackers that do a lot more for less,.. Full review

The smartwatch, simplified

from Alphr
The Asus ZenWatch 2 doesn’t pretend to be anything but a low-cost, stylish Android Wear smartwatch, and at that job it succeeds well. It looks stylish, it doesn’t cost much and the improvements to battery life are a major bonus... Full review

Suave without the spending plan

from Pocket-lint

Asus has kept down the cost of the ZenWatch 2 by smartly cutting some corners compared to its predecessor, such as foregoing an all-metal design in favour of a plastic back plate and omitting sensors like GPS and a heart-rate monitor.

Even so, the more we think about it, the clearer it is the ZenWatch 2 is a steal. It's priced competitively, looks pretty darn good (ignoring the bezel excess), and comes in two sizes to suit different wrist sizes - that last point something even the Huawei Watch failed to deliver. 

With Android Wear being what it is, this Asus even... Full review


Asus' smartwatch sequel keeps things simple to keep the cost down

from Wareable
The Asus ZenWatch 2's big premise is individuality and affordability and, on these points, it's somewhat of a success. It's cheap - especially in the US (UK buyers get a bit of a bum deal) and there's loads of combinations to choose from. However, it feels more like a competitor to the Pebble Time than a genuine Android Wear contender. It's not as smart as Sony's AW devices and it's not as stylish as entrants from the LG and Moto corners. Treat the ZenWatch sequel as a smartwatch gateway device, expect no bells and whistles, and you won't be disappointed... Full review

Affordable wearable, unappealing looks

from Tom's Guide

The Asus ZenWatch 2 is an inexpensive Android Wear device with long battery life and some helpful apps, but it also looks and feels like a $150 watch. Those looking for an elegant timepiece with a round face at a similar price should consider the original Moto 360, which has an elegant, lighter design, and can now be bought at Best Buy for $150. The 360 also comes with a heart rate monitor and runs the latest version of Android Wear 1.3, but it doesn’t last nearly as long on a charge.

For those who aren't ready to splurge on a more luxurious Android Wear watch and just want... Full review


Asus has topped its previous ZenWatch with a much better one

from TechRadar
Simply put, the ZenWatch 2 is good, but not great. It's far better than the original ZenWatch which puts it much closer to the other Android Wear wearables. Honestly, if you just want to try out a smartwatch without diving in too deep, the ZenWatch 2 is about as high-end as you can get without tipping the money scale. You get plenty of customization options with watch faces, bands and even a few different watch bodies. There's also the fantastic choice of two different watch sizes to choose from, a huge improvement from last year... Full review Reviews Summary
