ST Liew (Smartphone Chief, Acer) in a recent interview to Pocket-Lint said :

We are looking at wearable, I think every consumer company should be looking at wearable. Wearable isn’t new … it just hasn’t exploded in the way that it should. But the opportunity’s for billions of dollars’ worth of industry.

So are we thinking along those lines? Yes, absolutely. You should expect something like that from us as well next year.


Liew however, didn’t disclosed much details about the plan and the type of the gadget, however he hinted that Acer’s first wearable device will have a very long battery life.
