Interestingly, Chang said that there is likely to be a delay in the launch of the ZenWatch in India. Back in November last year, Chang revealed that the smartwatch would be launched sometime in the first quarter of this year, but the company has been unable to keep up with the demand in other countries. This is likely to affect the launch timeframe of the Android Wear-powered smartwatch in India. Also Read - Android 12 beta 2 rolling out: New privacy features, tweaked design and more
