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.

"what Apple might have in the pipeline, and therefore what a well designed and thought through wearable strategy/device might look like."
Try not to come in your pants as "speculate"

I wish people would stop replying to Tony brain SWashed. This is his entire viewpoint summed up:
Apple good. Everyone else, bad.
No amount of debate, logical or otherwise, is going to change his views, or even cause him to think openly about anything that anyone says.
Apple is his religion.
Resist the temptation to bite. It's a lost cause. Just -1 and move on.
