By Prarthito

    Asus is gearing up for the IFA show in Berlin. Like many others in the mix, Asus also has a lot of plans going ahead with the year about to close. And what better way to get into the jam than entering the still infant smartwatch market with a new product of it own.

    With the IFA just around the corner, Asus has promised that it will come out with the best-looking smartwatch yet to be showcased in the industry. As expected, the new smartwatch will run on the critically acclaimed Android Wear.

    Asus Promises the Best-Looking Android Wear Smartwatch this Wednesday

    As revealed by Taiwan's Central News Agency, Asus will indeed bring the best-looking Android Wear smartwatch to date, and that it will indeed be presenting it to the world this Wednesday. Tagged as ZenWatch, the new smartwatch will be Asus' first Android Wear smartwatch.

    The new smartwatch from Asus is said to cost less than $199 (around Rs. 12,000). However, there is still some bad news on the cards. Although it will indeed be announced this week, the ZenWatch won't actually be available until October. After that, it'll go on sale in the US and some other additional markets, reports CNA.

    As far as a few details on the device is concerned, Asustek CEO Jerry Shen, according to the report, "told a media briefing that the ZenWatch, which is due for launch Sept. 3 in Germany ahead of the IFA electronics trade show, will initially pack English-enabled voice recognition when it goes on sale in October."

    Moreover, the new ZenWatch can be used alone or paired with other Android phones, and this includes Asustek's low-cost ZenFone models that will enable more functions. All this was revealed first hand by Shen, although nothing more was reveled.
