The ZenWatch is set to be the most wallet-friendly smartwatch yet.
Asus has been fairly quiet on what we can expect to see in their first attempt at a smartwach. Apart from a couple of teaser trailers of the ZenWatch, most of us still don’t know for sure what we’re going to see.
Asus CEO, Jerry Shen, has however given some details on the pricing of the smartwatch. Mr Shen has said that the ZenWatch will be available for less than $199, which equates to a conversion price of £129 (plus tax) in the UK. If this pricing scheme remains the same, it’ll make the ZenWatch noticeably cheaper than all of the smartwatches scheduled to be unveiled at the upcoming IFA event and even cheaper than several that are currently on the market.
We’ll have more information on the ZenWatch over the next few days.

From the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to the Sharp Aquos Crystal, here’s everything we expect to see at IFA 2014.
This part of the year is always an exciting time to be an Android enthusiast, and this year is no different. IFA 2014, taking place in Berlin from 5 to 10 September, is set to be the best yet for Android users, as the likes of Sony, Samsung, Huawei and ASUS are all set to take the stage to show off their products. We’ve put together a quick guide at what you can expect to see announced at IFA 2014.We already know that Samsung will be announcing the Galaxy Note 4 at IFA, but what it consists of is still anybody’s guess. We reckon it’ll include an octa-core processor and follow the same metal build of the recently announced Galaxy Alpha. Expect it to be released soon after its announcement as well. There’s also news of Samsung’s new smartwatch, the Samsung Gear S. There’s been several leaks on the LG G Watch R(including our very own guide to it) and it looks set to compete against the Moto 360 for the title of best smartwatch. LG are also lining up the announcement of their cut-price phablet, the LG G3 Stylus. ASUS are keen to get in the smartwatch glory hunt with their own Zenwatch. Little is known about the device itself, so it’ll be interesting to see what it offers. We could also potentially see a new ASUS Pad announced. The beautiful Ascend Mate 7 is set to be Huawei’s new flagship device. It’s going to be packing a premium design and high performance specifications, but little is known an regional availability and price. There’s also the Sharp Aquos Crystal, which looks to be the world’s first bezeless phone.
Away from IFA, Motorola will be holding their own event on 4 September, where we will see the announcement of the Moto 360, a new Moto X and a follow-up to the Moto G.

Will the LG G Watch R be the surprise winner of the next generation of smartwatches?
Do I really need to say anything? The thing is beautiful!
But anyway. LG has lifted the lid on its latest venture into the smartwatch market and boy are we impressed. The LG G Watch R uses all the same innards as its predecessor, so you’ll find the same 4GB of storage, Snapdragon 400 processor and 512MB of RAM all available to you. But LG has listened to consumer feedback and made some big changes in other areas.
For one, the G Watch R actually looks like a watch you would wear and now includes a stylish circular interface. It’s also predominantly made from stainless steel, which should bump up the price tag a fair amount too. We expect to hear more from LG about their new smartwatch at IFA next week.
