Asus working on the cheapest Android Wear smartwatch

Sometime back,Taiwan based computer manufacturer Asus announced it had plans to create a smartwatch for release this year. This could actually be true according to a report published on TechCrunch.


The report says  Asus will indeed launch an Android Wear smartwatch later this year, with a targeted debut window of September, an AMOLED display, and a price point below those of the current crop of launch devices from LG and Samsung.

”Pricing for the Asus device will likely be between $99 and $149 when it launches, according to our source” the report said.

It also said that Asus had previously discussed including gesture control on its smartwatch to make up for a smaller screen more suitable to wristborne computing, but this was prior to Google’s unveiling of Android Wear so it’s unclear if it’s the same project as the one discussed above.
