Asus launches holy trinity of ZenWatch 3, ZenBook 3, and Transformer 3 Pro

Looking for new Asus tech? These are our top three picks

The new “3” series is birthed from the idea of a holy trinity of power, design and transformation, all qualities that Asus’ newest third-gen products possess. Are they thrice as nice? We pick three that we think could be.

ZenWatch 3

The new smartwatch comes fronted in a 1.39in AMOLED display of 286ppi for reading even the finest print easily. The ZenFit app helps you keep track of your physical activities. Don’t be afraid of running in the rain with this, it’s IP67-certified to keep going even in the worst of stormy weather.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor ensures 25% better battery life than the previous ZenWatch 2, so you get an extra 2 days worth of battery life out of a full charge. Hypercharge tech gives it a 60% boost in a matter of 15 minutes, so you will never be running late because you forgot to charge it.

The ZenWatch 3 will be available in November at S$369.

ZenBook 3

Aiming to bring the fight to the MacBook, the ZenBook 3 is a svelte miracle of a 910g Ultrabook powered by the latest 7th gen Intel Core i7 or i5 processors. No matter the load you throw at it, it never gets hot under the collar thanks to its special cooling system where warm air gets pushed out through vents hidden in the hinge. Outfitted with a USB-C port, 16GB LPDDR3 RAM and a 512GB SSD, the good-looking notebook is designed for working on the go.

The 12.5in display comes with full HD resolution and a quad-speaker audio system designed with sound experts Harman Kardon to bring you the best Netflix and chill experience or mobile Skype meeting.

The ZenBook 3 starts from S$1998 and will be available from 22 October.

Transformer 3 Pro

Now this is a device that will bend over backwards for you; the flexible 12.6in Transformer 3 Pro can be tilted up to 170 degrees for your viewing or typing comfort. It also comes with a detachable backlit Transformer Cover keyboard

Just because it’s 8.35mm thin doesn’t mean it’s lacking in power. In fact, the Transformer 3 Pro is packing with its Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, 16GB high-speed RAM and 512GB SSD. In terms of connectivity, you’re looking at a HDMI port, microSD slot, and a USB-C port with Thunderbolt 3 support. That means it can be used to connect to other devices that require high bandwidth to power a multimedia experience on the Transformer 3 Pro's own 3K screen. Not too shabby, huh? 

The Transformer 3 Pro starts from S$1898 and will be available from 22 October.
