During the media launch of the world thinnest 3x optical zoom smartphone – Asus ZenFone Zoom, we have briefly touched on the latest smartwatch from Asus, the ZenWatch 2 but have no details on the pricing for this model. Today, Asus has officially launched the ZenWatch 2 with pricing from RM649 that varies between models!
Asus ZenWatch 2 Specifications:
- Android Wear OS
- 1.63′ AMOLED / 1.45′ AMOLED
- 320 x 320 resolution with 278ppi
- 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3
- 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400
- 4GB ROM + 512MB RAM
- IP67 water and dust resistant certified
- built in mic
Asus ZenWatch 2 W1501Q “ Sparrow ”
Dimensions: 49.6 x 40.7 x 9.4~10.9mm
Battery capacity: 400mAh
sus ZenWatch 2 W1502Q “ Wren ”
Dimensions: 45.2 x 37.2 x 104~11.8mm
Battery capacity: 300mAh
The difference between the ‘Sparrow’ and ‘Wren’ is its targeted gender. The Sparrow is specifically designed for male users with larger screen size and some other variations in terms of band and the colour.
The Asus ZenWatch 2 is priced based on the band
- Silica band – RM649
- Leather band – RM699
- Metallic band – RM899
It is rather unique to see Asus prices the ZenWatch 2 based on types of band instead of screen size and other variations. Although the Sparrow has a slightly larger screen than Wren, both are priced identical if the type of band used is the same.
