Asus CEO, Jerry Shen announced to a group of investors last week that Asus would be announcing their Android Wear smartwatch at IFA. True to form Asus are now teasing the release via their social media channels.

Posts have appeared on the Asus Twitter and Facebook pages showing a quote from Lebanese artist, poet, and writer, Khalil Gibran. The quote is quite obviously a thinly veiled reference to a watch, as is the image, clearly a silhouette of a watch.

The Asus Android Wear watch is supposed to be the game changer which will bring Android to the masses, with Asus’ traditional good quality, yet low-priced hardware paired with the Google Android Wear platform. Rumoured to be priced at between $99-$150, the price, if true, is half what Android Wear devices are currently selling for.

Just over a fortnight remains until IFA kicks off on Friday the 5th of September. Asus hasn’t as yet announced their Press event for the trade show, and they generally bring along some other toys to their events, but it’s Android Wear we’re really excited to see at the moment.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
