LG G Watch powered by Android Wear officially announced, coming in Q2 2014
Minutes after Google announced Android Wear, LG has took a step ahead and has officially announced its first smartwatch powered by Google's wearable platform Android Wear. Dubbed as LG G Watch, the smartwatch comes with angular design with reflective black chassis, as you can see in the image below. LG is planning to introduce the G Watch in the second quarter of 2014.
LG also notes that the G Watch "will present a low barrier to entry for developers and offer the best Google experience for users." No word on specifications, pricing or launch details yet, but are expected to be announced in the coming months.
“The opportunity to work with Google on LG G Watch was the perfect chance for LG to really pull out all stops in both design and engineering,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “With the LG G Watch, LG is continuing the milestones we’ve set in wearables following in the foot-steps of the world’s first 3G Touch Watch Phone in 2009 and the Prada Link in 2008. We’re confident that a well-designed device has the potential to take the smart wearable market by storm.”
