Too little, too late?


NEW DELHI -- Taiwan-based technology major ASUS on Friday announced "ZenWatch 3" in two strap variants. The leather strap variant is priced at Rs 18,999 and the rubber variant will cost Rs 17,599.

ASUS "ZenWatch 3" is a full-featured activity tracker that helps wearers stay motivated and improve their fitness.
