Although smartwatches haven’t quite become as popular as many thought they would, they aren’t expected to go away anytime soon. Google continues to promote and support Android Wear, and the platform now has its very own luxury smartwatch, the $1500 Tag Heuer Connected. American watchmaker Fossil also recently announced its own Android Wear device, and the first batch of ‘sequel’ devices are hitting the mainstream, with the Moto 360 (2nd Gen) already available in India.

Speaking of sequel devices, the Asus ZenWatch 2 recently launched in India at competitive prices. Costing anywhere between Rs. 11,999 and Rs. 14,999 depending on the variant, the Asus ZenWatch 2 marks the Taiwanese company’s presence in the wearables segment in India, considering that the original ZenWatch was never officially launched. It’s the most affordable Android Wear device you can buy, and hopes to entice Android users to give smartwatches a try. Does it have the smarts to give you a superior wearable tech experience? We find out in our review.
