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.
 
According to TechCrunch’s 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 Moto 360 (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 here) to function as anything other than a glorified watch.

It's anecdotal. I had to RMA a router once and they were good about it.

Never had those problems with Asus and I have been dealing with them for over 20 years.

They have always stood by their warranties whenever I needed to exercise them and the product quality is as good as or better than its competitors.

Same here, Asus is actually pretty well known for quality in most products. Is he thinking of Acer?
