Just yesterday ASUS pretty much confirmed the name of their upcoming smartwatch, which would be known as the ASUS ZenWatch. Now ASUS is expected to make it official and announce the product in earnest at IFA 2014 which kicks off next week, but in the meantime we’re sure some of you guys are wondering how much will the ZenWatch cost?
Well according to a recent report from Focus Taiwan, it seems that the ZenWatch’s price has been revealed. This was confirmed by ASUS’ CEO Jerry Shen who revealed that the ZenWatch would be priced below $199. This seems to be in line with ASUS’ earlier remarks in the year where they promised to make a smartwatch that would cost less than Samsung’s own smartwatches.
Shen also revealed that the watch will feature voice recognition and that Chinese language support for the watch’s voice control is also expected to be released by the end of the year, although this will largely depend on ASUS’ third-party developer of the feature. Shen went on to state that customers can look forward to the watch’s release in October in the US and other select markets.
The exact specs of the watch still remains unknown but we guess we will find out more on the 3rd of September, so be sure to check back with us then for the details!
