Fancy winning an ASUS ZenWatch? What about designing a watch face that will be available to all ZenWatch owners around the world? If you think you’ve got what it takes then there is still time (geddit) to enter the Asus Face the Future Design Contest.
Running until the 10 February, the designers can download a watch design template from the Face the Future contest website at http://apps.asus.com/zenwatch-design and get designing.
Designers and the general public can visit the site to see and vote via Facebook for their favourite designs. Voters will be entered in a separate draw for several chances to win their own ASUS ZenWatch with the final designs going before a industry judging team.
Judging for the Face the Future design contest will be performed by ASUS Design Center, the multi-disciplinary and award-winning ASUS design team. ASUS Design Center judges will select their favourite designs in the following categories: Gold Medal, Best in Beauty, Best in Creativity, Best Practical Design, Best Student Design Award, and Fan Favourite.
In total, six ASUS ZenWatch devices will be awarded to winners.
All participants will have the chance for their design to be included as one of the standard watch faces on ASUS ZenWatch and will also receive an ASUS Certificate to recognise their accomplishment.
The ASUS ZenWatch is the company’s Android Wear smartwatch and pairs seamlessly with an Android 4.3+ smartphone to provide relevant and useful information when it is needed most, and serves as a personal wellness manager. ASUS ZenWatch follows the tradition of fine watch craftsmanship with its stylish, detail-focused design and use of high quality materials. Its curved Corning Gorilla Glass 3 display and case that follows the contour of the wrist, combined with a premium, stitched-leather strap with unique clasp, results in a design that is both comfortable and elegant.
The standard 22mm strap is easily changeable, letting wearers create a unique look for their watch by choosing a strap in their preference of colour, style, and material. In addition to the included brown strap, ASUS offers additional straps in a choice of dark brown and orange colours. Crafted from premium Italian leather and featuring an easily adjustable design, the straps are the perfect blend of style and comfort.
Complementing its physical design, ASUS ZenWatch comes with a selection of instantly changeable watch faces to fit any style, mood, or occasion. Wearers can use ASUS ZenWatch Manager on their smartphone to pick a watch face and customize its colour and the information it displays, and change the watch face directly from ASUS ZenWatch.
Combining sophisticated sensors with all-day comfort, ASUS ZenWatch is also a personal wellness manager that tracks a variety of wellness statistics, such as heart rate, step counts, and relaxation levels to help wearers keep their lives in balance and achieve personal fitness goals.
