ScreenPad. It’s not the most creative name ever, but it is something I’m also kind of surprised nobody else thought of doing to a laptop. I know Razer had that whole “stick your phone in a laptop” thing but that’s not this. This is something else, but at the same time it also feels like it should have been a very obvious thing to do.
Why, then, did nobody do it? Why did nobody slap a screen into the space where your laptop’s trackpad usually sits? Is it because it’s a bad idea? Well, that’s what I tried to find out with ASUS’ brand new ZenBook Pro.

Most smartwatches these days are capable of tracking heart rate but unfortunately, you hardly find one that can track blood pressure. The most portable solution we’ve seen so far is Motorola’s Vital Moto Mod but it looks bulky and it only works with the Moto Z series.
Blood pressure monitoring is actually quite crucial as more than 40% of adults aged 25 years and older suffer from raised blood pressure. To tackle this health issue, ASUS has just introduced the VivoWatch BP. This is the world’s first health band with built-in blood pressure tracking.

When you think “gaming phone”, you think of devices like the Razer Phone or the Xiaomi Black Shark, both of which have a pretty reasonable “gaming” identity about them. But now, after ASUS’ big ROG launch, there should only be one phone you think of when you think “gaming phone”.
That phone is the ASUS ROG Phone and it is absolutely bonkers.

If you think about mobile gaming, you probably expect a smartphone with great specs and a big battery. After years of making gaming laptops, ASUS has finally announced the ROG Phone. A radical smartphone for hardcore mobile gamers.
When it comes to technology, I’m usually all for the pursuit of making things as portable as possible so when ASUS announced that they had created the world’s thinnest 2-in-1, my eyebrows were raised.
The ASUS ZenFone 3 series is finally out and they are not the same phones that you used to know. The early ZenFones were cheap and cheerful but the Taiwanese brand is now setting their sights on the top end of the segment.
One day before Computex 2016 kicks off, ASUS announced three brand new smartphones to add to their ZenFone lineup, the ZenFone 3, ZenFone 3 Deluxe and ZenFone 3 Ultra.
If you’re waiting for the next iteration of ASUS ZenFone smartphones, you won’t have to wait any longer. ASUS has just released a teaser for the ZenFone 3 and it’s officially launching on 30 May in Taipei.
UPDATE: the ASUS VivoWatch sold for RM 799 during the pre-order during the weekend.
If you’re into a non-Android Wear or Apple equivalent wearable, you might just be in luck, as ASUS will start taking pre-orders for their no frills activity tracker, the VivoWatch from tomorrow onwards. Brought to you by ALL IT Hypermarket, the pre-order will only last for two days, the 21st and the 22nd of November.

Barely a year since the original ZenWatch made its debut, ASUS has released its new ZenWatch 2 that’s also powered with Android Wear. With newer smart watches putting more emphasis on fashion and style like the Apple Watch, the new ZenWatch now comes with 3 case colours and a choice of 18 different strap and colour combinations. To better suit men and women, the ZenWatch 2 now comes in 2 sizes of either a 22mm or 18mm width strap option.
