Computex 2015 | Asus unveils Zenwatch 2
The second generation smartwatch from Asus debuts today at the Computex technology trade show in Taipei, following last year's ZenWatch wearable. Dubbed ZenWatch 2, the new Asus smartwatch will hit the market in two sizes and offers small functional improvements and design refinements compared to its predecessor.
According to the official press release, "ZenWatch 2 is designed to be a truly personal device that wearers can customize even further to express their unique sense of style." The two sizes available can be customized with three case colors and 18 strap material and color combinations, as well as "instantly-changeable" custom watch faces.
Some technical specs have not been confirmed yet, but the processor is expected to be the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 as that used by the original ZenWatch, while water and dust resistance rating is now IP67. Asus claims battery life has also been improved, but does not reveal any details yet. The Remote Camera app has been tweaked as well, while the Wellness app has been completely redesigned.
Details on availability and pricing are not out yet. We will get back to this new smartwatch as soon as we hear more, so stay tuned.
