Asus's second generation ZenWatch will hit the shelves as early as the third quarter of 2015.

Asustek CEO Jerry Shen made the announcement, dismissing all rumours regarding the delay of the smartwatch, and saying that the release timing "remains unchanged" at an earnings conference for investors, reports Focus Taiwan.

The new wearable device that would succeed the current ZenWatch is likely to be unveiled at Computex Taipei, the second largest computer trade fair, scheduled to be held from 2-6 June.

The unveiling would be followed by market launch, which would commence in early Q3 (sometime in July), added Shen.

The new Android Wear-powered device is expected to bundle several improvements in terms of user experience. As for the battery life, the new watch would run less than four days on a single charge, as opposed to the two day life of the current ZenWatch, which was unveiled at IFA trade show last year in Berlin. However, Shen expected the new device to last for seven days.

Shen further suggested that Asus's smartwatch shipment for this year would be less than one million, which might not be a significant contribution to the company's total revenue.
