Asus has unveiled in IFA 2014 in Berlin its first wearable device. Known as the Asus ZenWatch, this Android Wear-powered smartwatch is designed with the underlying philosophy to “start with people.”

In other words, the Asus ZenWatch is meant to provide a smooth digital experience for users. It’s made with comfort and appearance in mind, and both features have been achieved by means of high-quality materials that include genuine leather for the straps. The software watch face can also be easily arranged to match the user’s lifestyle.
