Asus has just taken the covers off the ZenWatch 2, which will be taking the torch from the ZenWatch. A point worth mentioning before we proceed ahead is that the original ZenWatch still hasn’t reached India even though it has been confirmed by the top executives at Asus on more than occasion.
Coming to the ZenWatch 2, it takes a shot at the Apple Watch by offering two dial sizes and a wide array of customisation options with different bands and materials. It even gets a crown on the right side but it just a power button but not a scrolling unit like the one on Apple Watch.
The Asus ZenWatch 2 comes in two sizes: 49mm stainless steel case with a 22mm strap and 45mm stainless steel case with 18mm strap. It will be available in silver, gunmetal and rose gold colours. Asus has announced about 18 different strap materials for the smartwatch.
The ZenWatch 2 gets a new magnetic charger. Asus hasn’t revealed much about its specifications but is focussing more on its feature list for the time being. All that we know is that it gets AMOLED display with 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass 3, is powered by a Qualcomm processor, runs Android Wear and has IP67 water resistance. It has a battery life of about 4 days and it can go even further with that.
It will be joined in by the Wellness app which will serve as your activity tracker. It also gets an improved version of Remote Camera under which you get better control over your smartphone’s camera. The smartwatch also gets ZenUI integration. Details regarding the pricing and other specifications are expected to be announced in future.
