The first ever wearable device of Asus, the Zenwatch Android Wear, was recently launched at the IFA 2014 event in Berlin. Unlike the previous gadget-looking smartwatches that we've seen in the past, the Zenwatch sports an elegant and classy design. According to Asus, the ZenWatch brings the "luxury tradition of fine watchmaking to Android Wear, with an elegant, detail-focused design and use of high-quality materials."
