LG had been rumoured to be developing a new Smartwatch in collaboration with Google for quite sometime now. LG itself had before that been rumoured to be working on a Smartwatch from as early as last year but nothing came out till yesterday. The company announced the G watch after Google announced Android Wear that extends the Android platform to wearables.
LG’s announcement was pretty fast given that Android wear had only been in existence a few minutes before they announced the G watch. The company said that the G watch will be compatible with a wide range of Android Smartphones displaying relevant information to users whenever they need it.
The G watch will have an angular design with a reflective black body and will be available in the second quarter of 2014 making it the first Android Wear device to hit the market.
According to 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.”
More of this Smartwatch will be unveiled in the coming weeks or months.
