Expect an Asus Smartwatch this year
Jonney Shih, the chairman of Asus stated to the press in Taipei that his company is currently working on a host of connected devices and one of them is a watch. Touted be the next big market for manufacturers, Smartwatches have shown limited success in terms of sales and practicality. But that has not deterred Asus to join the ranks of Samsung, Sony and soon to enter Apple.
“There are actually many challenges in this area, and I don’t think products that lack special features will be useful. We’ll try to replace your watch by all means,” Shih said, noting that Asustek’s new wearable device should be available for consumers in 2014.
