Back in 2014, ASUS launched its first smartwatch, followed by ZenWatch 2 in 2015, and ZenWatch 3 in 2016. However, it looks like we might not see the ZenWatch 4 at all.

According to a report said to be coming from "sources of Taiwan's supply chain," the company has a hard time finding the buyers for their smartwatches. The source claims that ASUS is shipping 5,000 to 6,000 units per month. Considering that Apple is shipping around a million smartwatches monthly, this number is extremely low.

 

This is the reason why, according to the report, ASUS is considering to discontinue the ZenWatch series.

If the report is legit, it is highly unlikely that we will see a new ZenWatch. However, the company is rumored to announce three new ZenFone series smartphones in less than a month at Computex.
