This is clearly “inspired by the Apple Watch in more ways than one. I really can’t say much more than that. Asus introduces a “crown” and a new “magnetic charger”, 2 different sizes, 3 case colours and 18 strap combinations. It looks good. But what do you think of the ZenWatch 2?”

Massive bezels look horrible. 😦
They do. Only solution is using a black background with a black watch which hides the large bezels.
