Exploring Little Red Dot with ASUS ZenWatch 2

Early last year, ASUS Singapore launched its first smart watch that syncs with both Android and iOS smartphones, with 2 sizes available for females (1.45-inch: Wren) and males (1.63-inch: Sparrow). The phone came in stylish high-quality leather straps or a choice of stainless-steel body and straps in either gold or silver. In collaboration with ASUS Singapore, I get to try it out for a period of time.

Recently, have been hooked onto counting my daily steps, ever since I got my new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge phone which has this app called the "S Health". However, one thing about it is that girls don't usually carry our phones around, do we, so the steps count can be a little under-represented.

So when I first got my hands on the ASUS ZenWatch 2, I was rather excited to test it out since it has an Advanced Wellness Manager in it which consists of an activity tracker that allows me to track my daily activity level, hitting daily exercise goals. It tracks a range of workout types from running, to walking, or pushups. Daily reminders for me to stay active and healthy!

As a continuation of my instagram project: #exploringlittlereddot, I embarked on a mini exploration around little red dot's CBD area during lunch one day. Watch the video below to see where I went! 

Besides the fitness app, other apps such as Business Helper and ZenWatch Message also allows you can to track and view your call log, messages and also calendar from the watch, when synced with your phone, for you to be constantly updated and be reminded of your daily appointments on the go, without having to remove your phone from your pockets or bag.

Lastly, what I like about the ASUS ZenWatch 2 is that it allows me to personalize the watch face by choosing from 50 instantly-changeable designed software watch faces with just a click from the Face Designer App. Different watch faces to fit any style, activity, or mood that you are feeling every day. Pretty interesting huh? 

The battery life on the down side can be a little lacking since it drains out quite quickly, but you could help save some battery by either putting it to "sleep" when you are not using it or decreasing the brightness. On the flip side, you could quick charge to 60% within just 15%, which is pretty decent after all. 

If you would like to know more about the ASUS ZenWatch 2, you can head over to their official website or check out the new ASUS ZenWatch 3 (which can I just exclaim that it looks extraordinarily sleek and fashionable?). Head over to read my previous post on ASUS Zenpad 7 too.
