Asus plans to unveil its first smartwatch at the IFA trade show in Berlin this September. Now we have our first glimpse of… part of the watch.

The company has a habit of posting teasers ahead of major launches, and today’s clue is pretty clearly an outline of a watch.

Asus is expected to use Android Wear software for its smartwatch, which means the user interface will look much like what you’d get if you bought a Samsung Gear Live or LG G Watch. But Asus has said its smartwatch will be more affordable than competing devices, which tend to sell for around $199 and up.

It also looks like the watch will have a square face rather than the round watch face Motorola is using for its upcoming Moto 360.

Asus will also likely unveil next-gen phones and tablets at IFA.

Update: Asus has posted a few more teaser images of its smartwatch design to Facebook.

  1. Moto360 is probably what most people want, because of its round face.

    1. Yes but they took way too long to launch that watch. I reckon by the end of next year it will be obsolete and all other companies will have caught on with the circular watch design.

      The thing that this has going for it is that it’s priced economically. If I was to buy one of the two I would go for this as it will tide me over until the v2s next year.
