LG gives us a clearer look at the upcoming LG G Watch and what it’ll be capable of.
LG is working with Google on the LG G Watch which will be powered by Android Wear. The LG G Watch will be compatible with a wide range of Android smartphones and LG plans to unveil the smart watch by summer 2014.
The G Watch will be the fourth device developed with Google, following on from the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition. Dr Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said “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.”
Dr. Park added: “With the LG G Watch, LG is continuing the milestones we’ve set in wearables following in the footsteps 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.”
The design of the G Watch, from what we’ve heard so far, certainly sounds swish. Firstly, there will be two colour options to choose from: ‘Stealth Black’ or ‘Champagne Gold’. Both will come with rubbery straps and slab-like faces. LG has also promised that the screen of the G Watch will never sleep. Just in time for a summer holiday, the G Watch is also waterproof which means you’ll be able to show it off by the poolside or the beach. Or, in a less glamorous situation, wear it as you wash the dishes.
More details of the LG G Watch will be coming soon. What do you think of the smart watch so far? Let us know by posting in the comments below.
