Asus teases smartwatch launch for September 3rd

New, 15 comments

Asus has a smartwatch coming, because of course Asus would make a smartwatch when everyone else in the industry is diving headfirst into wearables. A not-so-vague teaser suggests that we'll see Asus' watch — which is rumored to run Android Wear — at IFA on September 3rd. TechCrunch previously reported that the company is aiming to undercut LG, Samsung, and Motorola in terms of pricing; the Asus watch expected to land somewhere between $99 and $149. That report also indicated the device will feature an AMOLED screen, and if the event invite is anything to go by, whatever Asus has built here looks a bit less bland than the G Watch. We'll know the full story in a matter of days.
