One of the best Android Wear watches to date, the ASUS ZenWatch, was announced last September at IFA 2014. While it seems the tech community expects a yearly release cycle for just about every new product, it looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer than 12 months to get our hands on ASUS’ next smartwatch.
ASUS CEO Jerry Shen reportedly told NDTV Gadgets that, while the new smartwatch is in the works, the company doesn’t plan to launch the ZenWatch 2 this year. Shen also revealed to reporters that the wearable will arrive in two versions, one for women and one for men. There was no clarification given on whether the new variants will only be different sizes or if the company will launch two completely different styles.
This is certainly great news for both men and women who want to adopt wearables, but can’t seem the right size to fit their wrists. While a number of current wearables on the market are advertised as “unisex”, the fact of the matter is that some are just too large for many women’s wrists.
A lot can change over a year’s time, so we still may end up seeing the ZenWatch 2 launch before the end of 2015. Once we get anymore information on the new wearable, we’ll be sure to let you know.
