Asus ZenWatch 2 specifications and features: The smartwatch features a 1.63-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 320×320 pixels. It also features a Qualcomm chipset, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage.

The bigger variant features a 400mAh battery, which the company claims is good enough for up to 2.5 days on ambient mode, while the smaller variant comes with a 300mAh battery that is said to be good enough for up to two days. The smartwatch also comes with a magnetic charger with fast charging, which is said to be capable of charging the smartwatch to 50 percent in just over half hour.

The ZenWatch 2 also features IP67 certification that makes it resistant to dust and water. Furthermore, connectivity options include Wi-Fi, which means you can connect to your phone directly as long as both are on the same Wi-Fi network. On the software front, it runs on Android Wear. While iPhone users would have to think twice before buying an Android Wear smartwatch, Google recently extended support to iPhones.

Asus ZenWatch 2 will go on sale in select markets from October onwards, priced at around $170 (Rs 11,260 approximately) and $190 (Rs 12,580 approximately) for the smaller and larger variants respectively.

While specifics haven t been revealed, Asus says the ZenWatch 2 will be available in countries where the first-generation ZenWatch is already on sale. This is bad news for India, as the ZenWatch never made it to our shores, despite multiple promises by the company.
