Asus: smart hours of ZenWatch 2 leave
in the third quarter 2015
The management of Asus declared that the second generation of ZenWatch will appear on counters of shops at the beginning of the third quarter, as well as was planned, thereby having disproved early messages on a delay of start of the new smart hours. As writes the Focus Taiwan edition, reporting to investors, the chief executive officer of ASUS Jeri Shen (Jerry Shen) reported that terms of start of clever hours under control of the Android Wear operating system did not exchange.
According to CEO, ZenWatch 2 will be presented within Computex Taipei, the second-large computer exhibition in the world which will pass from June 2 to June 6 in Taipei (the capital of Taiwan). Sales of hours start at the beginning of the third quarter of this year.
In spite of the fact that ZenWatch 2 will receive a set of the improvements, new smart hours can not catch up with mobile devices of the ZenFone series on demand, Shen speaks, referring to lower operating time of the storage battery, than he expected. If the first generation of ZenWatch worked at one charge about two days, the second will function less than four, instead of seven as Shen hoped.
The head predicts that in 2015 the volume of deliveries of smart hours of Asus will make less than one million that will not strongly affect total income of the company.
According to research firm Canalys, last year on the market slightly more than 720 000 devices on the basis of Android Wear of which share about 16 percent from total amount of deliveries of smart hours which is estimated at 4,6 million units are the share were put.
