While we are waiting for more news than expected iWatchfor now Google is taking advantage in the sector: although for the moment the list of smartwatches with Android Wear is limited to two modelsIt seems that it will soon start to grow, not only with the Moto 360but also with another of Asus.
The Asus smartwatch would cost between 99 and 149 dollars
Although the filtration is quite grim in detail regarding the characteristics of this smartwatch from Asus, which we only know for the moment that will work with Android Wear and that will mount a screen AMOLED. The information is much more juicy in regards to its launching, pointing to a debut in late summer, in September, and a price noticeably lower than its competitors, costing only between 99 and 149 dollars.
What destination awaits smartwatches?
Although the fate of the smartwatches it's still a bit uncertain and that in fact the data we have so far on the wearables they are not especially flattering, it seems that most of the big manufacturers are not hesitating in the least to give the concept a chance.
