TechCrunch spreads word that ASUS is about to make smartwatches more affordable with the introduction of its own Android Wear smartwatch with a price tag between $99 and $149. The device reportedly has an AMOLED screen but few other details are available. The expected launch date is September.
Pricing for the Asus device will likely be between $99 and $149 when it launches, according to our source. The company made the decision to wait until later to launch its Android Wear project because they didn’t want to “rush” their efforts, the source added. It’s true that LG conceded during its press conference for the G Watch yesterday that part of the reason it didn’t include a heart rate monitor in its device was because of time constraints, so there was clearly a schedule imposed by Google to stick to in order to meet the Wear launch window.
