First Android Wear watch launched at IFA 2014

IFA 2014

We're live at IFA 2014 where, as expected, Asus Chairman, Jonney Shih, has just announced the company's first Android Wear smartwatch, the Zenwatch. Leading up to the event we knew it was coming, we knew the name, but now it's official and we know exactly what it looks like.

The software it runs is a little more familiar – go check out our full review of that if you need a reminder – since at this point Android Wear is, well, Android Wear. But the Zenwatch is now the fifth such smartwatch we've seen that runs on Google's wearable platform. Notable software additions are some utilities to unlock and find your phone, and some gestures like covering the watch to mute an incoming call.

The ZenWatch will be available for 199 Euros. no word on a date or price for the states just yet.

The Zenwatch certainly has its own individual style and we're looking forward to taking a closer, wrist on look in a little while. For now be sure to keep an eye on our liveblog to see what else is new today in Berlin!
