New Generation ASUS Zen next smart Watch launches back on track Q3 2015 release computex


The rumour mill is churning out with a new buzz of Asus’ next smartwatch. Well, we can’t say it hearsay as the CEO of company has made his confirmation mark on it. Jerry Shen, CEO of Asus has announced that the second generation of their smart wearable will make debut in third quarter of this year. However, the launch will take place in June at Computex. The Computex will be held in Taipei from June 2 to June 6, 2015.

Some rumours are suggesting that the launch will not take place during the Computex while the company has said to ignore this hearsay. CEO himself said to ignore the rumour for delay launch. To make you relax, another buzz over web is saying that Company will not develop own OS for wearables. The next generation ZenWatch will support the same Android Wear platform.


It is also said that company will improve the battery capacity of this upcoming smart wearable. Reports are suggesting that Asus will be going to double-up the battery backup from its original ZenWatch which was launched at IFA 2014 in Berlin. The unannounced ZenWatch 2 will go for upto 4 days while the available one is capable to go for upto two days. Well, it’s quite appreciative that Asus is thinking to enhance its new watch’s capability in this realm. However, we have no idea whether the tech giant will make any changes in design of the upcoming wearable or not.

It’s just few weeks to start the Computex event where we will get the chance to see the ZenWatch 2.
