Asus CEO: no Asus ZenWatch 2 this year, but two variants are being prepared for 2016
Jerry Shen, CEO at Asus, was recently quoted by NDTV claiming that his company will not launch a successor to the original Asus ZenWatch this year, and that the new smartwatch won't reach the market until next year at an unspecified date.
According to NDTV, Shen recently made the comments in New Delhi with the occasion of the Asus Zenfone 2 Indian launch event. Back in December 2014, the CEO was quoted by a Taiwanese newspaper claiming that the ZenWatch 2 will arrive in Q3 2015 with standalone voice calling capabilities, but it looks like the company had a change of heart.
The interesting part comes as the Asus CEO is also quoted stating that the second-generation ZenWatch will come in two different versions, one for men, and one for women. At the moment, it's unknown if the CEO was referring to a couple of distinct designs, or just different sizes.
