The Asus ZenWatch 2 Is Now Available From The Google Store In The US For $150

Asus' ZenWatch series has gained a small but dedicated following since the original version was released thanks to the gadget's understated style and low price.

The ZenWatch 2 uses the ubiquitous Snapdragon 400 chipset with 4GB of storage and half a gig of RAM.
