Asus may kill ZenWatch series due to poor sales, rumors claim11
According to Digitimes, the average monthly shipments of the ZenWatch products from the supply chain amount to 5,000-6,000 units. This is almost nothing compared to Apple’s results in the smartwatch segment – according to an industry estimate, Cupertino shipped seven million units of the Apple Watch in 2016, and IDC says the company’s smartwatch shipments have been about 3.5 million units in the first quarter of 2017 alone.
However, the information on the possible termination of the ZenWatch product development has yet to be officially confirmed by Asus. And perhaps there is still hope for the product line, given the fact that all ZenWatch models so far have been decent offerings – both in terms of features and pricing.
