ASUS CEO says ZenWatch will cost under $199 and will be out in October

ASUS CEO Jerry Shen has reportedly stated that its upcoming ZenWatch device will be priced under $199 and that it will be released sometime in October. Shen made these statements well ahead of the company's official reveal of the device at IFA 2014 in Berlin on Wednesday.

The ZenWatch, which is expected to be based on Android Wear, will support English-based voice recognition, according to what Shen told a media briefing in Taiwan last week, but that the ZenWatch will support the Chinese language for voice support sometime before the end of 2014.

We will be on the ground at IFA in Berlin this week to learn more about the ZenWatch. In the meantime, what do you think about the overall prospects for this smartwatch?
