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.
