Smartwatches are turning up left and right lately—and another one might be just around the corner. SlashGear reports that Asus has sent out a teaser for an event at IFA Berlin on September 3. The teaser image shows what looks like the outline of a smartwatch dial, and it's accompanied by the following words:
Time has been transformed, and we have changed; it has advanced and set us in motion; it has unveiled its face, inspiring us with bewilderment and exhilaration
Yeah, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out. If the quote isn't obvious enough for you, SlashGear says that, earlier this year, Asus' Jonney Shih talked in no uncertain terms about an upcoming smartwatch with voice and movement controls.
If Asus does release its smartwatch on September 3, the company may be the latest one to beat Apple to the punch. According to AppleInsider, the Mac maker's fabled iWatch may not debut until October—both after the Asus event and on the heels of the iPhone 6 launch, which is also expected to take place early next month.
