Asus announced their next-gen ZenWatch at IFA in September, with 2 different sized models aimed at addressing concerns about excluding customers with smaller wrists. Though the watch is now on-sale in the US, no sign of the watch has appeared in Australia as yet and given their overly late entrance to our market with the original, it’s surprising to see they’ve started to ramp up towards a launch here in Australia.
The Asus Australia Facebook page posted this teaser on their page basically showing a man wearing the watch with the caption ‘Guess what’s heading to Australia…’. While normally Asus products are very much anticipated and wanted, the comments, though only a few haven’t really been a huge outpouring of excitement for the Zenwatch 2.
The exact time frame for launch on the Zenwatch 2 in Australia isn’t known as yet, but from the looks of things, it’s definitely coming. We had a brief hands-on with the Zenwatch 2 in Berlin and it was a decent piece of kit, though almost identical in design to the original – Asus thinks they got it right.
We’ll know more soon regarding launch of the Zenwatch 2, so if you’re sure that this is ‘your next’, then stay tuned.
