After being a prominent player in Android Wear since the beginning, it appears that all is not well with Asus’ Zenwatch line, with Digitimes reporting that they are contemplating stopping the Zenwatch line.
The report, which is based on the usual ‘people in the know’, this time in the Taiwanese manufacturer’s supply chain, who say the company is only moving around 5,000-6,000 units across the Zenwatch line per month. Asus is reportedly not happy with this low number, and is considering dropping the line entirely.
The launch of the Zenwatch 3 in November was lauded as a great looking watch, however lack of NFC in the device with the looming launch of Android Wear 2.0 which includes Android Wear support could be a factor in the less than stellar sales.
Asus hasn’t officially announced anything on the Zenwatch line as yet, so we’ll have to wait for Asus to actually acknowledge this one – until then you can grab the Zenwatch 3 for $399 from Bing Lee.
