There are different choices for straps such as leather and silicon options. It boasts an IP67 rating and thus, can get a few splashes but cannot be submerged in water for extended periods of time. The smartwatch features a 1.39-inch AMOLED screen with resolution of 400 x 400 pixels. The display is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass. The watch features three buttons on the right side.

ZenWatch 3 comes with several activity-tracking features and offers you notifications right on your wrist. It can track steps taken, mileage, calories burned and more. But, it does not have a heart rate monitor. In terms of battery, the device will last 1-2 days on a single charge. Its HyperCharge technology charges the battery up to 60 percent in 15 minutes.
