Thanks to the good folks at ASUS Malaysia we managed to get some time with the international version (so it doesn't have the standard 3-pin adapter) of the upcoming ASUS ZenWatch 3.

The most interesting feature however, is the fact that it has the ability to playback music direct from the watch.

ASUS recently announced their latest smartwatch with the ASUS ZenWatch 3, featuring a round 1.39-inch AMOLED display with 400 x 400 pixel resolution covered by 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass. Previous ZenWatches were rectangular with rounded corners but it looks like ASUS are retaining the stainless steel build. Colours include a gunmetal, silver and rose gold version but all of them have a rose-gold bezel. No Malaysia release date or prices yet but it will cost 229 euros (RM1046) set for a release date sometime later this year. ASUS Malaysia have usually been shy about bringing in ZenWatches, so if you want it, keep an eye on third-party sellers.
