ASUS looks to undercut its rivals in the Android Wear market
Is $199 (
Samsung Gear Live
) or $229 (
LG G Watch
) too rich for your blood when it comes to
Android Wear-based smartwatches
? Now it appears that ASUS is aiming quite a bit lower for its entry into own entry into the nascent market.
sources, ASUS is set to launch an AMOLED-equipped Android Wear smartwatch that will be priced between $99 and $149. With Motorola definitely looking trending the high end of the market with its much-lauded
(estimated MSRP of $249), ASUS’ entry — at least at a $99 price point — just might be enough to trigger an impulse buy from consumers that have already bought into the Android ecosystem.
As you may have already known, Android Wear smartwatches require a smartphone running Android 4.3 or higher (check compatibility
) to function as anything other than a glorified watch.

I like my Pebble a lot too. Wear it every day. And I agree. The watch has gotten buggier over time. The experience on Android was much better, too. Since getting an iPhone, it has trouble keeping connection to the host app after 24 hours.
So basically, I need to go in and open the Pebble and SmartWatch+ apps every day. On Android, the service ran in the background flawlessly.

I have noticed that if there is a lot of wireless in the area, it does lose connection. Not often to the point of annoyance. I do think the software needs some work but Pebble so far is the best one. The other watches look promising but bulky looking.
We'll see what the future holds.
