If you like having a smartwatch that makes you look both absolutely spiffy and dapper, you’ll be pleased to know that ASUS launched two new stainless-steel bands for their ZenWatch 2. Now, the stainless-steel watch case comes with matching metallic link-bracelet straps.

The new stainless steel straps come in Gunmetal and Silver, and ASUS has straps that can fit both the 1.63-inch (49mm) “Sparrow” and 1.45-inch (45mm) “Wren” watch cases for the ZenWatch 2 (22mm strap and 18mm strap respectively). The new straps also broaden ASUS’s selection of watch straps, introducing metallic to existing leather and rubber alternatives.

Here we have the Silver band variation of the ASUS Zenwatch 2.

The ASUS ZenWatch 2 with metallic straps will be available at SGD299 (approx. RM900) at all ASUS stores and authorized resellers. No official date has been given by ASUS Malaysia as to when they will be bringing in these variations, but check back here in the future, as we'll bring you updates on its availability.

To re-cap, the ASUS ZenWatch 2 is an Android Wear smartwatch with two case sizes. It has a better IP rating for weather protection, but otherwise similar in hardware to its predecessor.
