It wasn’t long ago we’d heard ASUS was putting the ZenWatch 2 launch off until 2016, but the company says the original comments that spawned the story seem to have been misunderstood. ASUS has confirmed that their originally-planned Q3 launch window was still in effect, according to Focus Taiwan.
We still don’t know what to expect from the smartwatch, though past comments by ASUS suggest they were targeting an insane battery life of up to 7 days (though current tests are coming in at just under 4 hours, which is still quite good for a smartwatch’s standard). We were also told to expect two different sizes to fit different tastes.
We imagine whatever they come up with will have to be as premium as they come, as the trend for wearables seems to be emphasizing fashionable taste as much as practical usability. That said, we’d argue there’s no need to worry as the original ASUS ZenWatch look quite good for a first generation smartwatch.
