ASUS announced last week that the ZenWatch will launch on November 9 with Best Buy being first to carry it. To our surprise, the watch was nowhere to be found either in-store or at BestBuy.com. It doesn’t even have a proper SKU, and is nonexistent in all off Best Buy’s systems. This is a disappointing if you ask us. We don’t understand why would ASUS make an official announcement and not have their product ready for consumption.
The ZenWatch is probably the best looking square smartwatch in the market. Its price tag of $199 makes is a very attractive option to the newly announced G Watch R ($299) and the Moto 360 ($249). Spec-wise, it packs a Snapdragon 400, 4GB of internal storage, 512MB of RAM, 1.63-inch AMOLED display, Bluetooth and more. It also comes with 100 watch faces and a double-tap feature to find your phone.
We reached out to ASUS to find out what’s going on. Stay tuned.
Update: One of our readers pointed out that the ZenWatch is listed as unavailable (out of stock) at Best Buy. See picture below.
