Top Customer Reviews
*** look and feel:
For him the watch is a perfect size. We like the rubber band as leather tends to get old and smelly after a while. The profile is low and slim. The edges are rounded and comfortable. The weight is just right, its made of metal so it has weight but its not a cheap plastic weight either. For her the larger 1.63 in screen is a tad big so the smaller 1.45 screen might be more appropriate if you don't mind not having the speaker option.
In our experience of the round and square screen we prefer the square screen. Though the round looks neat when in watch mode it is annoying during use of all other functions. Lets face it that when looking at a calendar, shopping list, web page, facebook feed, etc the round screen is just a waste of space. On a round watch only the center lines are useful because top and bottom areas are cut off on the corners. On some apps and webpages you just cannot get to all the onscreen buttons and menus with a round screen. We think Asus has done a nice job of making the smartwatch look like a watch but yet keeping the functionality of the square screen.
The reason why we were looking into smartwatches was so we didn't have to carry our phone around the house and the yard. The idea was to not miss a call or text. We figured a smartwatch should be the answer ... lets find out.
We first figured we need a watch that has cell service ... turns out we don't, we tried one. Thought it would be nice but the battery life of a cell phone enabled watch wouldn't last longer than a day. After using many watches from the Samsung Galaxy Gear S with Tizen to the LG Urbane 2nd Edition LTE we finally settled on the Asus ZenWatch 2 ... why? We first thought it would be important to answer calls from the watch as a stand alone phone. The idea was to be able to leave our main smartphone at home when running to the store or when around the yard. We found out that the battery life of smartwatches with phone capability was not even a full day. This lack of battery life was frustrating so we decided to give the ZendWatch 2 a try even though we didn't think it would fill our needs. We quickly found out that as long as we were in WiFi range we don't miss a text and we could surf the web to check facebook, weather, etc. This was turning out to be very handy. We no longer have to carry the phone around the house.
We can reply to texts, facebook, and take notes via Google Keep all on our watch when in WiFi range OR when the phone is in Bluetooth range. The battery life is excellent, at the end of the day we usually are at 65%. This is even with normal use of sending a few texts, checking facebook and having the watch face *on* all the time. We hear people say that they don't want to charge the watch every night but the reality is we don't wear the watch in bed so we put it on a dock that happens to charge, so it is not an inconvenience to charge the watch every night even though we don't need to.
We also liked having the step counter, sleep tracker and it does have a handy workout tool. Keep in mind there are many many apps available on Google play, search "wear" to see for yourself.
We would like to point out that we can answer phone calls from the watch when we are within Bluetooth range. This is nice when we are in the car and we cannot get to our smartphone without putting our selves or others in danger. With a flick of a wrist we have hands free calling. What about when we are on WiFi? I *do* get a notification of a missed call so in the end the smartwatch is still handy in regards to phone calls as we can then proceed to our smartphone if we want to call them back.
There are many handy uses we have discovered when having smartwatch on our wrist. We can check our shipping list from our wrist via Google Keep while at the store. We can quick ask the watch for a weather forecast, news, sports score, etc. We can even open our garage door and control our home lights & locks via our home automation web interface, sweet!
There are some key apps out there that we think are a must:
1. google keep
2. google calculator
3. web browser for android wear by appfor (go to facebook mobile side, check Gmail mails, etc)
4. messages for android wear by appfor (allows you to send texts and read them) or Google Messenger by Google
5. photo gallery for android wear by app for (any picture you take on your smartphone is viewable on the watch, very handy)
6. ZenWatch Remote Camera by Zendwatch, ASUSTek Computer Inc.
In the end we are very happy with our purchase. The screen is bright and vivid. The battery lasts long and the price is right. We recommend this smartwatch.
Hope this helps, if it does please help us out and click the Yes button next to the "Was this review helpful to you?" ... Cheers!
*** P.S. We would like to note that this doesn't have a heart rate monitor ... which is fine with us. We have read many reviews explaining that they are not accurate and we think they are a waste of space and battery life. We have found smartwatches that have the heart rate monitor will auto start the heart rate monitor when tracking an activity it which eats battery life and there is no way to turn it off. Thanks Asus for not putting installing a heart rate monitor in the watch!
Before I jump into the pros and cons, let's talk about the watch size. It's huge. It's ridiculously huge. I have normal lower arms and I think it looks silly, though most people I ask think it looks fine. Unless you are just a person with really big arms, it's going to take up the majority of your wrist width. See the pictures I've posted for a better idea. If you like big watches, this is heaven for you. I personally think the included band makes it look bigger because of the contrasting color, so I switched it with a matching silver Milanese loop band. It makes the watch look much nicer in my opinion. Also having it all one color seems to help with the size. The old version of this watch came in a smaller size, but it didn't include the speaker to make calls. To me, that completely negates why this watch is such a bargain. I can live with the size for the speaker.
Phone calls from the wrist - This isn't going to be for everyone, but very few watches currently have the capability to make and receive phone calls...especially at this price point. There are a ton of features on this watch and this is one of the most important. I certainly don't use it every day, but it's there when I need it. As a Realtor, I tend to walk around my house taking calls and texting. With this watch, I can leave my phone on the kitchen counter and never have to worry about missing a call. If I'm in a different room, I just answer from the watch. It beats sprinting to the kitchen.
Screen and screen size - Beautiful for a watch that's less than 140 bucks and runs the latest Android Wear. It's big enough to make the touch screen aspect easy to use.
Android Wear - I think this next Android Wear 2.0 update will finally put AW on the map, although it's good now. It's one of the reasons I'm thinking this will be my main watch for the rest of this year. Lots of app choices and I've always been an Android guy from the beginning. Google Voice is super useful on a wearable. Google maps shows up on the wrist. Google music. Alerts and agendas through Google. The Google Now cards (though they can be disabled). All the good parts of Android are on the watch
Build quality - Put a link or mesh band on this watch and it looks quite expensive. I like the silver casing as opposed to the plastic Pebble Time look. Looks more like a normal watch.
Battery Life - I haven't owned any other Android Wear watches, but everything I read says this is one of the best...and this new quick charge version is FAST to charge!
Wi-Fi capability - I have my settings to automatic and when my bluetooth range drops out, the watch and phone can communicate through wi-fi networks. Apparently, they don't even have to be on the same network. I haven't tested that out because there is never a time I would leave somewhere without my phone. I could see this being useful if you wanted to leave your phone in your locker at the gym and take the watch with you. As long as both are on the same network, they should not need to be in bluetooth range to communicate. I'll have to experiment some more with this option and update my review.
Google Fit - As Google Fit makes improvements, having an AW watch with Google Fit is going to be very useful. Nothing actually syncs with Google Fit like an AW watch, so this is your best bet if you want to be in the Google ecosystem for fitness. Yes, it lacks a heart rate monitor...but optical HR monitors are far from the most accurate for quick spikes during workouts. When that technology gets better, I'll buy in to a watch that has it. All the ones I've tried with it have been underwhelming. Other watches say they sync with Google Fit, but nothing is going to be as seamless unless it's running AW.
Watch Faces - Lots of options built in and on the Play Store. Can even download an app from Asus to make your own.
Bezel - Although not as big as some watches, it still contributes to making the watch unnecessarily huge. Attn: Smart watch makers, please get it together regarding the large bezels on your next generation of watches.
Bluetooth Range - This wasn't as great as I had hoped. I may lose connection at less than 20 ft with one wall. That doesn't happen with a bluetooth earpiece. Having the wi-fi option comes in handy to combat this issue.
Pedometer Feature - Horribly inaccurate compared to every other wearable I've tried. I've worn 4 wearables at the same time and most are very close. The Pebble Time was my most stingy step tracker, but I think it was the most accurate for not counting hand movements. Today, I wore the Pebble Time and the Zenwatch 2. It was a pretty inactive day. The Pebble Time counted 6,160 steps. The Zenwatch 2 read just over 3,700. That's a huge difference. I know my Pebble Time has been accurate through prior testing. I could not care less about step count, but the problem is the watch uses this data for other things that it syncs with Google Fit. I'm not sure what's going on, but I'm a little disappointed. It should not be difficult to get a functional pedometer into a $140 watch. Every other company has managed to do it. Maybe I got a lemon, but I've read about other experiences like mine with this watch.
Wellness App - Worse than the pedometer. I wish it could be uninstalled without rooting. This app doesn't even count your BMR (basal metabolic rate...or "inactive calories" in every other watch). If it does, I'm missing it. Terrible app that is pre-installed on the watch and can't be removed.
CONCLUSION: Despite a few quirks, you aren't currently going to find a more feature-rich Android Wear watch for the price. I would say it's not even close right now. Looks, build quality, battery life, typical AW features, and more for under $140. Its true competitors are mostly a hundred to two hundred dollars more. The Pebble Time is a great watch around this price range..and they do a lot of the same things. But if you want Android Wear, that big color screen, and the ability for phone calls...the Zenwatch 2 is your best bang for the buck so far in 2016.
Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to help. If you have found my review useful, I would truly appreciate you clicking the "Helpful" button to let me know. Thanks so much and good luck with your smart watch search!
CON: I have worn this watch for five days. The screen is already riddled with scratches. Do not trust the Gorilla Glass 3. Get a screen protector. This is why I'm giving it four stars instead of five.
By far the best watch available for the money, but GET A SCREEN PROTECTOR!
