It’s no secret that we are / I am a bit of a fan of the impending AsusZen Watch 3. Not only is it an exciting device in its own right, but it’s also one of the only Android Wear devices from an existing Android OEM. We were fairly excited to see Asus Australia tease, and then announce the device for release on November 25th rather than Q1 2017.
Today we spotted that the device has now been added to the Asus Australia Website, along with a pre-order button. If you’re wanting to grab a ZenWatch 3 in Australia this seems to be your only official way to do so thus far. You can grab one for $449 plus $6.33 shipping and handling, for a total price of $455.33, it’s down as shipping within 6 days so we’re not clear if that’s 6 days from the 25th or if they will send it on its way a little sooner.
Unfortunately, Australia is only getting the Gunmetal Grey version, we know the Silver and Rose Gold version will not be headed our way, at least for the foreseeable future. Additionally we have confirmed that the battery module Asus announced at the launch event will also not be coming this way. The last thing we’re not getting, at least for now, is any after market watch bands, we know there is at least a rubber version on the way from Asus.
