ASUS has announced the launch of its second smartwatch, the ZenWatch 2, a stylish and personalized wearable device powered by Android Wear™, available in the UAE from 30th November.
Following the unprecedented success of its predecessor, ASUS ZenWatch 2 is set to meet growing demand in the region for wearable devices designed specifically to fit consumer lifestyles.
Available from AED 799 across the UAE, the ZenWatch 2 is a smart combination of ASUS’ best innovation and technology, designed with the end-user in mind and at an extremely competitive price.
Launched just in time for the festive season, the ZenWatch 2 is a high quality device designed for wearer personalization and will be available in two sizes and three attractive colors — Silver, Gunmetal, and Rose Gold.
The cutting edge 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 customized 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.”
Crafted with absolute attention to detail using high-quality materials and featuring the efficient and powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon™400 processor, this precision watch serves as a smart assistant for Android and iOS devices, that provides wearers with a convenient, at-a-glance view of incoming calls, messages, notifications and other important information without having to remove their phone from their pocket or bag. ZenWatch 2 comes with a wide-range of software features, including ASUS ZenUI apps, Business Helper, FoneHelper, Remote Camera, and ZenWatch Message.
In addition to software improvements, 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% faster battery recharge times than the original ASUS ZenWatch. It takes just 36 minutes to charge ZenWatch 2 from zero to 50% capacity — enough power for a full day of use.
