After the drop of the all new Android Wear wearables experience, the news hasn’t slowed down at all. Motorola quickly pulled the lid off of their Moto 360 smartwatch and now LG is joining the party by announcing their G Watch.
LG posted on their official blog that the watch would be powered by Android Wear and be compatible not only with their smartphones, but many other Android devices. Pricing is expected to be low on the G Watch since LG states that the watch presents a low barrier to entry for developers and offers the best Google experience for users.
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.”
LG states that the device will be available in Q2 of this year and that more information will be available soon.
