Smartwatch from Asus, loaded with 'special features', to launch in second half of the year
According to Asus chairman Jonny Shih, the tech manufacturer is planning on adding its contribution to the smartwatch market, by releasing its own timepiece during the second half of this year. Shih hinted that the timepiece will be full of special features when he said that watches without such content are useless. "We'll try to replace your watch by all means," said the executive.

The Asus smartwatch will reach consumers this year, promised Shih. The company told investors last November that it would be presenting a wearable device at this June's Computex show in Taipei.  More intriguing is the story recently leaked by an Asus insider. The anonymous source said that the company would be releasing a "distinctive" wearable device in the second half of 2014 that will be different than anything else produced by the competition, and could be worn as a necklace.

"There are actually many challenges in this area, and I don't think products that lack special features will be useful. We'll try to replace your watch by all means."-Jonny Shih, chairman, Asus

"and could be worn as a necklace" just like the Kreyos?

If they could deliver something cool that has cool features and looks good, then I'm in. I don't want some gimmicky stuff like a camera or a power hungry, hard to see in daylight AMOLED display on my watch.
