The first-gen Asus ZenWatch can now be snapped up for just $149.99
With the ZenWatch 2 having recently been unveiled, Asus' first ZenWatch is probably en route to the tech scrapheap, but not without one last hurrah. The wearable can currently be purchased for just under $150, which is the lowest price it has been since it first launched last year. The fact that it was one-upped by the ZenWatch 2 at Computex means that the discount isn't quite as eye-opening as it might have been a month or two ago. But still, if you're looking for a cheap wrist computer with a dose of traditional wristwatch charm, you might want to take advantage of this saving.
when we first reviewed the device, the $200 price tag was also atop our list of plus points. Now, it's even cheaper.At $149.99, the Asus ZenWatch boasts a 1.63-inch AMOLED display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, and runs on Google's Android Wear software.

Android Wear devices aren't too dissimilar from one another since their general functionality relies heavily upon the software. The ZenWatch 2 offers a new magnetic charging system, better shielding against the elements with an IP67 rating, and a new crown that offers unspecified functionality. But at face value, it's largely unchanged from the original model, running seemingly identical under-the-hood specs. As such, you're probably not losing out on too much if you do opt for the older variant at $150.
