Earlier this year Google strictly denounced Android Wear, a company’s new program height for smartwatches and other wearable devices. Soon after a announcement LG and Motorola announced their initial Android Wear-powered smartwatches, a G Watch and Moto 360, respectively. Since then, another Android Wear watch was launched, Samsung’s Gear Live.
Last week we’ve listened that another large association will shortly join a Android Wear world. A news entrance from Focus Taiwan revealed that ASUS’s CEO Jerry Shen told a investors tat a association will launch a smartwatch after this year during IFA Berlin. Well, it seems that a news was loyal after all, since ASUS post their initial IFA teaser on Google +, revelation us that “Time has been transformed, and we have changed.” Besides a apparent anxiety to time, a teaser also shows a outline of a smartwatch.
For a time being, a sum about a yet-unannounced are roughly zero. We’ve listened some reports that it will run Google’s Android Wear platform, though that’s all. Other sources are suggesting that a ASUS smartwatch will be labelled some-more aggressively than a existent rivals. Furthermore, ASUS’ Shen pronounced during an investor’s discussion that a company’s arriving watch “looks improved than competitors’ products though comes with a comparatively low cost tag.”
Of course, he unsuccessful to discuss how low a cost tab will unequivocally be, though we can make a guess. The Gear Live is now one the cheapest Android Wear smartwatch and it costs $199. So will a ASUS smartwatch have a cost of $150 or less? Don’t be too astounded to hear so. If a reports infer true, afterwards a smartwatch labelled between $100 – $150 and that looks during slightest as good as a Gear Live or a G Watch would turn really renouned quickly. Would we be interested? Please let us know in comments.
