ASUS continues to tease smartwatch launch at IFA 2014

If there was ever any doubt that ASUS was going to enter the smartwatch market with a launch of a product impending at IFA 2014, those doubts can be safely quelled by now – ASUS is coming out with a new wearable product in Berlin. That much is certain, with the Taiwanese manufacturer continuing to put out teasers for the new product.

Sony may have ‘leaked’ Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, smartwatch

As IFA 2014 in Berlin draws ever nearer, we are anticipating the big players to make major moves and launches as far as new products are concerned. Sony will be most likely one of those, and we are expecting to see its new flagship phone the Sony Xperia Z3, an Xperia Z3 Compact smartphone, and an Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. The latter may have just been teased over at Sony’s Xperia Facebook page, together with a smartwatch device.

Is this LG’s new, round smartwatch?

LG’s G Watch can be considered the first Android Wear smartwatch, if you’re keeping track of that sort of thing. The Moto 360 was then the second, and rounded out the Android Wear offerings (see what I did there?). A few flagship wearables later, LG is back with a second smartwatch, and they’ve taken a hint from Motorola this time.

ASUS teases Android Wear smartwatch unveil at IFA

Around two months ago, rumours of a fourth smartwatch using the Android Wear platform began circulating, and ASUS was the most likely suspect to develop it. Reports were saying that the Taiwanese OEM would be launching its own device to compete with the LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live and the soon-to-be-out-in-the-market Moto 360. Now a tweet from ASUS seems to confirm and tease that they will indeed be launching one at next month’s IFA.

Best Buy might have leaked Moto 360’s retail price

To say that the soon to be announced Moto 360, the first round face smartwatch in the market, is highly anticipated is like saying that a full moon is, well, round. Those who are waiting to purchase their very first wearable are holding out for the official launch, expected to be this September 4th at the Motorola event. But the main concern right now is if this smartwatch running on Android Wear will cost an arm and a leg. Best Buy might have inadvertently jumped the gun as a product page on their mobile site showed the retail price of the Moto 360.

Google launches four Android Wear ads

It may only have two smartwatches (soon to three) running under its platform but Android Wear may soon be the most popular one for wearables. With Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch and the entry this summer of the Moto 360, the first round face smartwatch, it is poised to slowly gain in popularity, at least for the Android community. Google uploaded four new ads on their YouTube channel, showcasing the capabilities and beauty of smartwatches running on Android Wear.

Google I/O 2014 attendees to get their Moto 360 soon

There were a few goodies given away at this year’s Google I/O Developers Conference, and a few of those who went were admittedly happy that they were given a choice of either an LG G Watch or a Samsung Gear Live to take home. The happiest, we think, are those who sat down for the keynote, who will be getting Motorola’s spanking new wearable – the Moto 360 – in their mail soon.
