Asus is one company that has been making a name for itself in the tech industry for the last couple of years with its great products. The company believes that ‘innovation is the key to success’ and they reflect this aspect in their products very well. The smartphones introduced by them at the CES ZenFone 2 and ZenFone Zoom were one of the best smartphones introduced there, with great specs and an affordable price tag. Last year the company introduced a smartwatch Asus ZenWatch, which was hailed by many as one of the best smartwatches introduced last year.
The ZenWatch is defined by us as a companion to a smartphone, and we think it still has a lot of room for improvement.
The smartwatch no doubt was good but there is always room for improvement to make it perfect. The company certainly is working on that aspect. The want to design the upcoming Asus ZenWatch in such a way that its optimized battery life will sustain for 7 days. That is a great target on their part to address one of the major woes facing smartwatch users. For achieving this goal the company is planning to make changes both at the hardware and software level to produce a product the provides optimal battery life. The expected changes would be that Asus would make use of a more energy efficient processor and use some other OS instead of Android Wear. These changes were actually pointed out by the Jonney Shih, Chairman Asus.
As a companion device, its central processing unit and operating system should be more simplified than the current version, so that I can use it for up to seven days on one charge, rather than for just two days.
The first Asus ZenWatch featured a 1.63-inch AMOLED touch display and was powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor. The device had a 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. The battery life of the ZenWatch could last up to two days. Lets see what major changes will be made.
The improvements if made will be cherry on top for the upcoming Asus ZenWatch. The new smartwatch is expected to arrive in the markets in Q3 and Asus also plans to launch some fitness trackers as well which are in leiu with the ongoing health conscious lifestyle, knowing Asus they will do a good job at that too.
