We caught sight of a tease from Asus earlier in the week suggesting that the greatly anticipated Asus ZenWatch 3 may be coming to Australia soon, rather than the original Q1 2017 we were expecting. It’s a tease no more, Asus has confirmed with us today that the ZenWatch is indeed heading to Australia and it will arrive in ten days, on November 25.
The ZenWatch 3 will retail for $449 AUD initially via Asus’s online store (link not yet up), at present Australia only seems to be getting the Gunmetal and Brown leather variant with no sign or mention of the Silver and Rose Gold options being mentioned.
The ZenWatch 3 is one of the most exciting, and admittedly only, Android Wear devices to come out this year. With a 1.39″ fully circular AMOLED display, Snapdragon Wear 2100 and the standard 512 MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage there is no better equipped Wear device on the market.
Check out the full specs below.

There’s mention of a replacement rubber watch band, but as yet that’s the only accessory it seems Australia is getting. We’ve asked about the portable battery charger and will let you know what we find out.
We’ve a review unit on the way, and whoever is the last alive at Ausdroid will get to review it. To say we’re all excited by the prospect of what the ZenWatch 3 offers would be an understatement.
