ASUS releases 3 ZenWatch apps ahead of official launch
Three free apps for the upcoming ASUS ZenWatch have appeared on the Play Store – the ZenWatch Manager, Remote Camera, and Wellness apps.
Although Google already has its own Android Wear software for setting up your smartwatch, ASUS’ ZenWatch Manager is there to guide you through setting up all of the basics and to act as the main companion app between your phone and wearable. The app contains options for setting a watch face, finding your misplaced phone or watch, and even creating preset emergency messages, just in case.
The two other smartwatch apps are called Remote Camera and Wellness. The first is pretty self-explanatory, allowing users to access their smartphone camera’s viewfinder and remotely control the shutter. Wellness is a basic app designed for tracking various health statistics. The app includes tracking options for calories burned, steps taken, and also tries to monitor your relaxation levels based on your heart rate. The interfaces across all three apps are quite clean and minimalistic looking.
The ASUS ZenWatch still doesn’t have an official release date and it’s not exactly clear what availability is going to be like when the smartwatch finally arrives for sale. With apps appearing on the marketplace, a release date can’t be too far away.
