Earlier this year, Google announced its first operating system for wearable devices. Google called it the Android Wear and just recently at the company's annual developer's conference, the search engine giant already launched the two latest smarwatches from LG and Samsung, powered by Android Wear.
These devices are the G Watch and Gear Live respectively. However, Motorola also has Android Wear powered smartwatch called the Moto 360 which will be launched later this year.
In the meantime, sources close to Asus, according to the TechCrunch reportedly said that the company is planning to launch their own smartwatch powered by the same Android Wear. Thus, we are talking about the fourth smartwatch which will most likely be launched sometime later this year.
But this is not the first time that we've heard about Asus' plan to come up with a wearable device. But this latest news at least lets us know that it will be running on Android Wear. The aforementioned tech site further said that the smartwatch will be much cheaper than the existing ones from LG, Samsung or Motorola and most likely come at the price between $99 (approx. Rs. 5,941) and $149 (approx. Rs. 8,942).
However, we are not aware of the hardware specifications and features that Asus is going to offer in the smartwatch. Nor have we any idea about the name. But rumor has it that Asus smartwatch will be coming with an AMOLED display. And if the Taiwan-based tech firm are to be concerned about the supposed product, it should probably focus on the pricing, battery and sensors that the watch is going to use.
Unfortunately, also the availability of the upcoming Asus Android Wear is not hinted in any way. But you can stay tuned to GizBot and the moment we get old of any information related to the matter, we shall report about it to you.
