Google has slashed $70 off the original Asus ZenWatch, bringing its price tag down to just $129.99 in the Google Store. The device has already received Google’s big Android Wear 5.1.1 update with flick gestures and always-on apps, and it boasts the same internals as devices like the G Watch R and the Moto 360.
