Asus has revealed a new Android Wear smartwatch — the ZenWatch 2 — at the Computex trade show in Taipei. The timepiece comes in two sizes, in silver, gunmetal or rose gold.

Taking after the Apple Watch, it features a digital crown to interact with the device. It also comes with a new magnetic charger that Asus claims is faster and attaches more easily than its predecessor.

How will it perform? Asus hasn’t said much more about the ZenWatch 2’s specs other than that it uses a Qualcomm processor.

You can get a ZenWatch 2 with a leather strap, rubber straps (available in blue, orange, red, and taupe) and stainless steel link bracelets (also in silver, gunmetal and rose gold).

The company has also teamed up with Swarovski Professional to offer a leather strap accented with crystals and embossed with a diamond pattern.

ASUS hasn’t yet announced pricing and availability.

We’ve contacted the company to find out more and will update this post when we hear back.
