It seems that the spotlight will be on wearable devices at this year's IFA tech show. Last September, Samsung took the stage and announced its first ever smart watch - the Galaxy Gear. This year, more players, other than Samsung, may join the wearable bandwagon.
The Google Nexus 7-maker, Asus, will likely to enter the wearable market on September 3, unveiling its Android Wear-powered wearable device during an event at IFA 2014 in Berlin. Asus has already made its presence felt in the handset market this year, but the wearable segment is yet to be fully tested.
Taiwan's Asus on Tuesday too to their Facebook page to share a sketch of what could be the first ever smart watch. The sketched render also shows few incremental highlights. Based on the image, one should expect the device to be made out of metal.
Also, we won't be surprised to see a slightly curved display, and a front facing camera. Nevertheless, the device seems interesting based on the official sketched render.
Over the past few months, there have been rumors and speculations surrounding the arrival of a new smart watch from the house of Asus. If media reports have anything to say, Asus could price its Android Wear powered smart watch somewhere between $99 ( Rs. 6,000) and $149 ( Rs. 8,940).
In comparison to, say, the LG G Watch which starts upwards of $230 (about Rs. 13,800, approximately), the Asus-made smart watch could start a price war. Apart from Asus, the South Korean giant LG will unleash a Moto 360 killer next month at IFA 2014.
