Singapore (22 December, 2015) — ASUS today announced the availability of the ASUS ZenWatch 2 Holiday Edition, the first ASUS smartwatch to be launched in Singapore in limited edition rose gold colour, during this Christmas period. The ZenWatch 2 is available with both 1.63-inch and 1.45-inch sizes, namely the Sparrow and Wren Zenwatch 2 models. The Zenwatch 2 is a stylish and personalised wearable device powered by Android Wear™, and features the efficient and powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™400 processor. The ZenWatch 2 serves as a smart assistant for Android and iOS devices, providing wearers with timely information at a glance and accessing their phone through a simple touch or voice command. The ZenWatch 2 Holiday Edition will be available at $249 at all ASUS Brand Stores and selected ASUS authorised retailers. In conjunction with the festive occasion, the ZenWatch 2 Holiday Edition in rose gold colour will be retailing at a promotional price of $229 (Usual SRP $249). The ZenWatch 2 is also available in gunmetal and silver colours for the 1.63-inch Sparrow and 1.45-inch Wren models respectively.
Fine Watch Craftsmanship
The ZenWatch 2 continues the tradition of fine watch craftsmanship with its impeccable, detail-focused design and high-quality construction. A metal crown button adorns the case, similar to traditional watch styling and providing a quick way to access apps and turn the screen on or off. The watch crystal is designed with a gentle curve for an elegant look and improved usability by providing a smooth surface for easy and responsive swiping gestures. It is made from tough Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 for protection against scratches and damage.
Highly Personal and Customisable
The ZenWatch 2 is also available with interchangeable straps – a tough yet supple rubber strap is available which makes it the perfect choice for athletes, users with active lifestyles, or those who prefer a more casual look. In addition, a soft, premium leather strap is available, providing an elegant look that fits any user scenario.
Complementing its physical design, the ZenWatch 2 comes with over 50 instantly-changeable, professionally-designed software watch faces. The wide variety of available designs allows wearers to customise their watch to fit any style, activity, or mood, such as a traditional watch face for work or a night out, a sports watch face for exercise, or a more casual design for leisure time. With the new FaceDesigner smartphone app, wearers can even create their own watch faces with the look and functionality they desire for a truly personal and unique ZenWatch 2 experience.
Smart Assistant App
Powered by the latest version of Android Wear, the ZenWatch 2 is a smart assistant for Android and iOS smartphones providing 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. The ZenWatch 2 comes with a wide-range of software features, including ASUS ZenUI apps, Business Helper, FoneHelper, Remote Camera, and ZenWatch Message.
The ZenWatch 2 seamlessly integrates with the ZenUI on the ASUS smartphones, allowing wearers enjoy wearable-optimised ZenUI apps, such as What’s Next and Do It Later. What’s Next keeps wearers informed of important information as they need to know it, such as details of their next upcoming appointment or the weather at their next destination. The Do It Later feature allows wearers defer events such as incoming phone calls and messages by automatically adding them to a list of reminders, so they can stay focused on their current task.
The Remote Camera function provides wearers with the ability to display their smartphone’s camera viewfinder on their ZenWatch 2. This frees them to take photos from creative angles where the viewfinder would be difficult to see, such as when holding their phone overhead at a concert or other crowded event. The Remote Camera function offers faster performance, greater range, the ability to switch between the phone’s front and rear cameras, plus zoom capability.
The ZenWatch Message is a fun new watch-to-watch communication app that allows wearers to exchange short messages, emojis, and drawings with other ZenWatch 2 wearers right from their wrists. In addition to software improvements, the 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 the ZenWatch 2 and it takes just 36 minutes to charge the ZenWatch 2 from zero to 50% capacity.
