Android Wear device from ASUS to debut at IFA next month


When Android Wear was officially introduced at Google I/O 2014, the only known devices were the G Watch, Gear Live, and Moto 360. Actually, those are still the only known Android Wear devices. But shortly after, it was believed that ASUS was working on a September release for its own smartwatch with Google’s wearables platform. Then a report surfaced that the device would be extremely thin. The most recent bit of news we heard about ASUS’ smartwatch was that the company is setting high expectations for it. A report out today claims that the company will indeed be readying a launch for early this fall with a debut coming at IFA 2014 next month.

So in less than a month, we should know much more about what ASUS and Motorola have in store for Android Wear.

Justin is patiently waiting for the day that Google replicates the Galaxy Nexus with modern day specifications.

    I loved getting rid of my watch, though I’ll admit I barely ever wore it even when it was a necessity. Surely there are better form factors than bulky eyewear and watches.

    A foldable display used as finger webbing would be good for swimmers…
