The latest batch of Android Wear smartwatches from LG, ASUS and Sony are now up for pre-order in the United Kingdom on Expansys.
Asus has just announced its first wearable device running Android Wear — the Asus ZenWatch. The watch looks surprisingly good and features a design that is leaps and bounds better than the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live.
ASUS today confirmed to Focus Taiwan that its upcoming smartwatch running Android Wear — the ZenWatch — will feature voice recognition and a price tag of less than $199.
The Taiwanese OEM is all set to unveil the ZenWatch in a couple of days from now at IFA in Berlin.
Just a couple of weeks ago, it was reported that ASUS was gearing up to announce their own smartwatch at this year’s IFA conference. A couple of days later, the company officially teased the new product, with a confirmation that the upcoming event would be the place where they showed it off. Now the company has launched a new video, offering brief glimpses at the sleek new design that will be offered.
Last week, FocusTaiwan reported that ASUS is reportedly planning on unveiling its smartwatch at IFA next month, though it plans were still not confirmed. Today though, the company took to Twitter to tease about the launch of something “incredible” at IFA, which clearly confirms that it would be unveiling a smartwatch next month.
It looks like ASUS is all set to jump into the wearable market as early as next month at IFA in Berlin. According to a Focus Taiwan, ASUS is reportedly considering on releasing its first Android Wear powered smartwatch, as told by its CEO, Jerry Shen, at an investor’s conference.
Last week, ASUS teased the arrival of its new tablet, smartphone and laptop hybrid. Today, the device has gone official before the Computex event kicks off in Taiwan. Known as the Transformer Book V, this new notebook comes with a dual boot Windows + Android OS, with the ability to seamlessly switch between the two.
ASUS has just posted a video teaser for the arrival of something new which it calls the “next incredible thing”. As the short video comes to a close, we see the word thing being transformed into thin, which indicates that this will be a slender device. The company is expected to announce this gadget on June 2 at the Computex 2014 event in Taiwan.
