A new report claims that Taiwanese manufacturer ASUS could be looking to bring features like voice and motion controls to its much rumored smartwatch. The Chairman of the company, Jonney Shih reportedly gave out details of this upcoming smartwatch in an interview with a local daily. Knowing what we’ve heard so far from Google and its new Android based smartwatch OS, it’s safe to assume that ASUS will base its device on the same operating system. It is said that Shih was a bit concerned about the battery life of this upcoming smartwatch which could be ironed out in time for the launch. The smartwatch is rumored for a mid-2014 launch, so there’s still some time until we get to see this device in action.
Naturally, since this is an early report, there’s barely anything to go with as far as specs and other aspects of the device are concerned. It will be interesting to check out ASUS’ implementation of the smartwatch, as Samsung is pretty much the only major OEM in the smartwatch business today after Sony.
