To aid promotion, the Taiwanese electronics maker is giving away 10 of the wrist-mounted devices and all you have to do is answer a few questions.
Like many smartwatches, the ZenWatch comes with an AMOLED display, with a 320 x 320 resolution and can give your smartphone some added function, like using it to control your phone remotely, or letting you find your handset in a hurry. It also comes complete with sensors that let you track several health-based metrics, including: steps taken, calories burned, how long you’ve been running for, as well as your heart rate or relaxation level.
All of this is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU running at 1.2GHz, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal flash storage. There is no hard release date as of yet, but it’s available to pre-order for £160 at select retailers.

KitGuru Says: I’m not sold on this generation of smartwatches being worth their price. Next year seems more likely to bring products that actually evolve the technology, rather than just emulating what most trackers and watches do already.
