    ASUS WI501Q-GM-GD-Q Reviews

    ZenWatch 2 1.63" Smartwatch with HyperCharge (Rose Gold Case, Rose Gold Metal Band) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 67.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from asus zenwatch 2 Bought this for myself and my son loved it so because I have 4 other smartwatchs but I think I messed up because the zenwatch was my favourite watch, I myself think it's the best smartwatch out there, the battery is the best out of all of the smartwatchs I have,as good as my Samsung gear s2 if not better and way better than my moto 360 and now that Android wear 2.0 is coming out and this watch will get the update makes it that much more of a better watch, I loved it so much I just bought a new one on B&H . This watch is a great watch and I love it has zenwatch manager. It's a great watch and I highly recommend this watch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great watch, at a great price! I've had smart watches for a while now, and I'm a really big fan of Asus. while the Zenwatch2 Is far from perfect, I think it's one of the best wear watches, and the fact that it's also THE cheapest, doesn't hurt either. in fact just about the only thing I think is not perfect about it, is that it's square (no, I don't care that it doesn't have a heart rate monitor, cause I never use that anyway) because it's squarei ended buying the huawei watch as well, only because it's round (and beautiful) but any day Asus is releasing the zenwatch 3 which is round, so I'll be getting that the day it's released

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not IP67 Bought this watch for my daughter. It worked fine until a few weeks ago when it got exposed to heavy rain. Now an IP67 rating says that it can be immersed in up one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. rain should not have affected it, but ASUS refused to honor the warranty and wanted to charge her $60 for the repair. Last time we buy an ASUS product, since I've since read about others having trouble getting them to honor their warranties.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels like a real watch I spent decades wearing Seiko and Citizen watches which cost as much as $500. When I had to replace the last one almost two years ago I decided to get the Gear Fit which went with the Samsung phone. I figured it would work best because it was the same manufacturer. That watch lasted just 20 months. The ZenWatch is the replacement for that Samsung device. I like the looks better, I like that it comes in a selection of metal bands, or placstic straps, and also has replaceable leather bands if desired. The cost is middle of the road for any good timepiece and the additional functionality make it a value. Things like tracking heart-rate, exercise/walking and being water resistant mean that I can use more my phones features when I an outdoors. Even when it is raining or when I'm kayaking the watch can stay on without worrying that it will be ruined. I have not been the biggest fan of ASUS computers over the last twenty years. I think that the reviews of the watches and now seeing the quality of the watch have done a lot to convince me that the wearable product from ASUS is definitely a wise choice. Only time will tell.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Was very apprehensive buying this since I have an Apple iPhone 6s - but except for not being able to take calls on the watch (which I do not want anyway) - I get notified of calls but have to accept and then use the phone....its really no big deal. but this has been an EXCELLENT buy so far - connecting via Bluetooth is a snap and charging is a really easy and very quick process.....everyone in office is admiring the watch (its a tad too big) but again really cool and the dial (watch) faces are fabulous. I still feel if they can get that Huawei like watch face (very contemporary and classic at the same time....it will be the best option but the existing watch faces (especially the ones with gears and cogs are excellent......and look really cool....Fantastic product at a Fantastic price - VERY HAPPY...thanks B&H - excellent service and delivery and price....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY STYLISH Great watch speak to text works amazingly this is a true extension of your smart phone. The OK Google function is fantastic I use it for web browsing, finding locations Via maps, music and calling. Watch can initiate a call or accept a call but you need to speak into phone. cannot answer with just the watch alone. I did know this when I purchased and I would not use a watch to answer calls anyway so this was not an issue for me. watch look's great and I change the watch face depending on crowd or meeting I am in

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish This is my first smartwatch and I am pretty impressed by it. I love the endless watch face options available, getting all notifications right on my wrist, and being able to take and make a phone call without touching my phone. One thing that needs improvement is range. Bluetooth only works for up to 20 feet away and the Wi-Fi feature is great however it also fails to connect if you are not close to your router.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from ASUS dropped the warranty entirely When I got this watch I knew it wasn't top-of-the-line, but I will confess I was pretty disappointed with it from the beginning. Very slow response time and I often had to make the same gesture multiple times before it would do anything (if it ever did). I treated it carefully and I kept it in like-new condition. However, the problem came when I went to the beach, walked into the water to my knees and splashed in the water for 30 seconds until I noticed that I had forgotten to take my watch off. I immediately took it back to my bag and left it there. That afternoon when I got it out of my bag it would not turn on and was basically bricked. I got an RMA to ASUS and a few weeks later they responded that my watch would not be repaired under warranty because it had physical or water damage. Now the ZenWatch 2 is advertised to an IP67 rating which is a clear standard saying it can be put in water to a depth of no more than a meter for no more than 30 minutes. I had put it in water to a depth of perhaps 6-12 inches for perhaps 30 seconds. Clearly if there is water damage it is because it wasn't actually IP67 (by definition). But their support (while being very sympathetic) made it very clear that they couldn't do anything - service had the final authority. So how do I contact service? Oh, you can't - you have to go through us in support. But you can't do anything about this problem, right? Right So how do I contact service? and around and around. Completely nonsensical. In the end they win - I gave up on trying to get them to honor their warranty. But at least I can warn you to not expect ANYTHING at all from Asus in terms of warranty!

    question

    For this or any smartwatch what type of apps can you install? I'm more interested in apps that will control say my DJI Osmo, Gopro or Nikon D500... Are smart watches made for this specific type of functionality? I tried to search but didn't find any reasonable results. Thanks.
