If reports are to be believed, Asus won't unveil the second-generation ZenWatch 2 later this year. Asus CEO Jerry Shen reportedly told NDTV Gadgets that the company doesn't plan to launch the ZenWatch 2 this year.
He, however, went to say that the second-generation watch is indeed in the works. In addition, Shen also revealed that the timepiece will arrive in two versions, just like the Apple Watch.
Last year, a report from Focus Taiwan had claimed that Asus would launch the next-generation sometime this year. The so-called ZenWatch 2 is reportedly set to debut this fall.
Asus has already tried to jump into the smartwatch market with its ZenWatch. The firm first showed off the first-generation watch, last year at IFA Berlin trade show.
If Asus wants to stay active in the wearable platform now is the time to do it before Samsung unveils its much-awaited Apple Watch killer in the coming days.
Of course, there's no guarantee Asus will launch the Android Wear smartwatch soon, especially with the ZenWatch having launched with Google's powered software. We will just have to wait and see what happens, and whether we really will get to the second-generation Asus-made watch at this year's IFA tech show.
So far, it seems that Asus doesn't have plans to announce the Apple Watch killer in 2015.
