LG teases G Watch with Android Wear in a new official video, giving us a sneak peak of its features
The company’s first smartwatch is rumoured to go on sale during the next quarter, before the end of June, and the new video has given us more details on features and specs.
Touting that “LG defines the smartwatch,” the video still holds back on giving much information away regarding how Google’s new software, designed for wearables, will work. But it does give us a pretty good idea of what the hardware is going to look like.
The smartwatch will feature a “metal body for a timeless look”, which is shown in the video as the camera pans around the device. It will also be water and dust resistance and has a long battery life, though there are no exact figures on how long yet. On the official site, LG also boasts the G Watch’s always-on display which “never sleeps,” and will not require any gesture or input to activate.
Although the exact date of release is still unknown, with the smartwatch market gradually booming, LG’s G Watch is set to fight with rivals such as Samsung’s Gear range, Microsoft’s rumoured smartwatch, and Motorola’s Moto 360 which will also run on Android Wear.
We’ll keep you updated if LG decides to let loose any more information, hopefully either at a press event at Macau on the 30th of this month regarding the launch of a smartphone, or at the Google I/O event.
