The watch’s round case has a low-profile design that is just 9.95mm thick and accented by a narrow, rose-gold bezel for a sophisticated look. Three crown buttons adorn the case and provide quick access to frequently used functions, including opening the ZenFit activity tracking app and changing the display modes.
ZenWatch 3 has a 1.39-inch AMOLED display with 400 by 400 resolution and 287ppi pixel density for deep blacks and pin-sharp details that make each watch face look its best. The display is covered with gently curved 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass that facilitates smooth swiping gestures and provides tough protection against scratches and damage. ZenWatch 3 comes with a strap made from a choice of stitched Italian leather or high-quality rubber.
