ASUS has announced the launch of its second smartwatch, the Android wear powered ZenWatch 2, available in the UAE from 30th November for Dh799.
The ZenWatch 2 will be available in two sizes and three colours — Silver, Gunmetal, and Rose Gold. The smartwatch from ASUS has 18 different strap material and colour combinations, including a Swarovski patterned leather strap, and the new FaceDesigner smartphone app that lets wearers create 50 different watch faces with customised style and functionality.
Ethan Ling, Country Product Manager ASUS Middle East commented, “The smartwatch category is still relatively new here, but there is a huge opportunity for growth in this market and the Asus ZenWatch 2 is going to be a step-change in the design of wearable devices. We build our smartwatches not only to exceed consumer expectations in terms of quality and design, but it also to reflect their own personal look as well as lifestyle. The ZenWatch 2 with its sleeker design, extended battery life, and a responsive user experience has already been well-received globally, so we are expecting the success and popularity to replicate in this region and capture consumer attention, particularly during the festive season.”
The ZenWatch 2 comes with an enhanced battery that provides up to two days of use on a single charge. An all-new magnetic charger effortlessly attaches to ZenWatch 2 and provides 35 per cent faster battery recharge times than the original ASUS ZenWatch. It takes just 36 minutes to charge ZenWatch 2 from zero to 50 per cent capacity — enough power for a full day of use.
