The LG G Watch release date is set for June and the price of the smartwatch will be €199 in Europe, according to LG France. Usually, manufacturers would adopt the same number for the price of their gadgets in the United States as in Europe, so we expect the G Watch to be priced at $199 in the US.
LG unveiled the G Watch more than a month ago, revealing it as one of the first devices to run on Google's Android Wear platform for wearables. The other timepiece running Wear is the Moto 360 watch, a device that we expect to launch at around the same time as the G Watch.
The main difference between the two is that the G Watch features a rectangular form for the timepiece, while the Moto 360 features a circular design. LG's smartwatch is also said to come with a 1.65-inch screen and 4GB of internal memory. While not all details are official about it just yet, LG has already confirmed that the G Watch display will be always on, so you don’t need to explicitly wake it up just to see the time. The watch will also be water resistant, which is neat.
At start, the LG G Watch will be available in Stealth Black and Champagne Gold. Are you planning on getting one, and what do you think about its supposed $199 price?
