Attendees at Google I/O are busy pawing smartwatches made by LG, Motorola and Samsung, but obviously there are other companies ready to jump on the Android Wear bandwagon. One of the firms currently drafting up a plan is Taiwanese computer manufacturer Asus, which will release a smartwatch sometime this fall, according to TechCrunch. Powered by Android Wear, the high-tech timepiece will reportedly feature an AMOLED display and ship with a price tag between $100 and $150.

No stranger to the Android brand, Asus has produced two of Mountain View’s flagship Nexus 7 tablets. The company decided to take its time releasing a smartwatch because it didn’t want to rush into Android Wear. Previously, Asus had talked about using gesture controls to compensate for a smartwatch’s small screen. It’s unknown if the company’s current Android Wear project will feature this type of technology.
