One of the first things I noticed about Asus' ZenWatch 3 is how stunning it is.

The Wirecutter

Affordable, stylish, and competent

It’s the best of what’s around: an affordable, good-looking watch with Android Wear 2.0.

So much value in this smarwatch

Asus provides a good set of features, and features that I wished Asus did a better job promoting. The physical issues, such as my desire for a more supple and more luxury feeling leather band can be swapped out, and again, the price does somewhat justify the lack of GPS and Heartrate tracking…  it’s simply a watch not intended for fitness enthusiasts, not everyone’s a runner so why pay for it when you don’t need it.

Appeals to a more fashion-conscious audience

The Asus ZenWatch 3 is a gorgeous smartwatch – possibly one of the best-looking to date – but there are shortcomings to the circular smartwatch. It’s limited in terms of fitness tracking, measuring only steps and standing hours and offering tracking for only basic exercises due to the omission of GPS and a heart-rate tracker. It’s also sluggish in performance and runs the outdated Android Wear 1.5, although Asus promises an update to Android Wear 2.0 in the future.

One of the best value options for Android users

from TechGearLab

The stylish and sleek smartwatch gets the job done and won't kill your wallet, with the potential to improve greatly as soon as the update to Android Wear 2.0 is rolled out.

Finally, another great Android Wear device

At $350 CAD, the Asus ZenWatch 3 remains a pricey accessory, albeit one that still manages to be one of the best Android Wear watches on the market. With the utility of wearables, particularly smartwatches, in question right now, and with the reveal of LG's new smartwatches, as well as Android Wear 2.0, on the horizon, it's difficult to recommend someone run out and purchase a ZenWatch 3 immediately.

All about style

from Wareable

The Asus ZenWatch 3 is a well-rounded smartwatch, but Asus's fitness angle is weak without the features to support it. This is all about style, and it will be a much better device the moment it gets Android Wear 2.0. Until then, you're still looking at a classy watch with decent battery life and some nice custom twists from Asus.

Stylish design and smooth performance but battery life can be a struggle

from PhoneArena

The ZenWatch 3 is pretty. It's solidly built, reasonably intuitive to use, and really does look quite nice. But it is also a big watch – and it's not the just-under-10mm-thickness that gives us pause, but the way the strap seems insistent upon being paired with a wrist of considerable thick...More

The ZenWatch 3 is pretty. It's solidly built, reasonably intuitive to use, and really does look quite nice. But it is also a big watch – and it's not the just-under-10mm-thickness that gives us pause, but the way the strap seems insistent upon being paired with a wrist of considerable thickness itself. Even though the strap will support smaller arms, the watch just doesn't feel right, and it never quite comes across as secure.

A model of downright sophistication, especially with one of its upscale faces

from Wired

A decent smart watch, but wait for Android Wear 2.0 if you can.

Rubs shoulders with the stylish competition

from TechRadar

Asus did a great job refining its latest Android Wear smartwatch. The ZenWatch 3 has one of the best displays of any smartwatch, great battery life and is built well. It’s missing a few features but it’s an undeniably attractive smartwatch.

One of the best Android Wear watches, but that’s not saying much

from 9to5Google

Overall, I think this watch might be the watch to buy if you find one of the variants that ASUS offers fitting for your style. In terms of hardware and features, you probably can’t beat this watch — at least not in the Android Wear space — for the price. The less-capable Moto 36...More

Overall, I think this watch might be the watch to buy if you find one of the variants that ASUS offers fitting for your style. In terms of hardware and features, you probably can’t beat this watch — at least not in the Android Wear space — for the price. The less-capable Moto 360 2nd gen. still retails for $300, and this watch can be yours for just $230. It’s a no-brainer if, like I said, you can stand its looks. These quick shots I took for this review may not do a great job of conveying its looks, but I have to say that the ZenWatch 3 is definitely nicer in person than it is in stock imagery.
