ASUS ZenWatch hits Google Play, but you still can’t buy it

The ASUS ZenWatch might be one of the better Android Wear devices around, and it’s finally available via the portal you might expect an Android Wear watch would be. The ZenWatch is now available on Google Play, and carries a price we’d been expecting. At $199, it contradicts a previous listing at another retailer, Best Buy, undercutting it by $30. We’d heard since ASUS announced the watch it would run in that sub-$200 price range, so it looks like Google got it right.

ASUS ROG Gladius mouse: Omron switches, detachable cable

ASUS ROG Gladius mouse: Omron switches, detachable cable

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has introduced another gaming mouse: the Gladius. Designed for right-handed gamers and "ideal" for FPS sessions, the Gladius brings with it Omron switches as well as the ability to upgrade to different switches if preferred. Both the right and left mouse buttons are separate from each other, and both are rated for 20 million clicks, meaning you won't be wearing the Gladius out any time soon. This is joined by a detachable cable in micro USB form and a special coating ASUS says keeps issues with sweat to a minimum.

ASUS ZenWatch hits Best Buy stores November 9

As they tend to do, ASUS is coming on strong with a decent product at a more than affordable price tag with the ZenWatch. A new report suggests the newest Android Wear watch is coming, and soon. Starting November 9 (that’s two days away!), you can pick up the latest Android Wear smartwatch via Best Buy. As expected, the ZenWatch checks in at a much lower price point that the smartwatches it competes with. At $199, it undercuts the rest, but doesn’t skimp too much on the spec sheet.

ASUS EeeBook X205 Windows laptop now available

Back in September we got our first look at ASUS's sleek budget-friendly EeeBook X205, a thin laptop running Windows 8.1 and offering users a so-called smartphone experience. Though we got all the details on the machine a couple months ago, ASUS was quiet on when it would launch the notebook, something that is no longer of any concern: the laptop is now available, and is priced at $199 USD. The device is poised to take on HP's recent similar offering, the equally budget-friendly Stream 11 notebook.

AT&T scores PadFone X mini exclusive, available Oct 24

Fulfilling a promise it made, ASUS is bringing yet another of its PadFone smartphone/tablet hybrids to the US market. And just like with its namesake, the PadFone X, it is again arriving exclusively to AT&T. The PadFone X mini offers that same flexibility of a 2-in-1 device, this time in a smaller and more handy size, without losing the advantages of AT&T's 4G LTE network. Of course, it is considerably less equipped than its older and bigger sibling, but the rather low no contract price does make up for it.
