Although the arrival of the new firmware for the ZenWatch 3 has been confirmed to happen on July 11, it seems that those using the previous generation smartwatch by Asus might have to wait a few more weeks.

Asus was never in the first wave of software updates for its products, and it seems that the second and third generation ZenWatch smartwatches did not get a different treatment. In the past, we heard that Android Wear 2.0 for the ZenWatch 2 and 3 was scheduled to arrive in April, then in May. Sadly, Asus missed both release dates.

Now, it looks like ZenWatch 3 users will soon be able to finally enjoy Android Wear 2.0, since Asus confirmed July 11 to be the release date of the new firmware for it. On the other hand, the company did not issue any official statement on the Android Wear 2.0 update for ZenWatch 2.

However, the official German Asus Twitter account revealed that the 1.63-inch ZenWatch 2 should get the update later this month, while the 1.45-inch model is scheduled to receive the new software in August. Remains to see if they miss the release once again or not.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
