LG announced G Watch powered by Google's Android Wear






Just recently, LG Electronics has just announced that it is working together with Google on LG G Watch powered by Android Wear, which extends the Android platform to wearables.


The LG G Watch powered by Android Wear will present a low barrier to entry for developers and offer the best Google experience for users.

LG engineers worked closely with Google from the initial stages of development to ensure that the LG G Watch worked perfectly with Android Wear.

“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 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.”

At the moment, additional details of the LG G Watch powered by Android Wear, including hardware specifications, will be announced in the coming months, but a previous tip from @evleaks suggests a 1.65″ IPS LCD (280 x 280) display, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage.

The LG G Watch is is slated to be introduced in the second quarter of 2014, and is the Korean company’s fourth device developed in close collaboration with Google following the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition. Source: LG Electronics
