Now, a new leak is confirming the idea that the G Watch will be powered by a Snapdragon 400, and it is bringing more info on possible specs for the first Android Wear device...

I don't like how big the Moto360 looked in the leak, hopefully the final version is not as big

That SD CPU is also a dual core and not a quad core. Which also makes sense.

Hopefully there is no ugly LG overlay on the Android Wear software...

Looks pretty good. Probably the only other smartwatch aside from Gear 2 that I would consider....the rest; forget it

I am not sure apple is going to compete on hardware department with lg smart watch. But who knows, maybe they will. It would be fun to watch different watches competing over specs.....

the battery life is a big appeal for the Pebble versus something like a Gear or a Wear.

Im waiting for the iwatch and the htc one watch. Knowing apple and htc got the best hardware design on phones so hopefully they bring it to smartwatches...the moto 360 is the most appealing smartwatch so far so hopefully apple and htc give moto a good fyt .

It looks too square-ish like Sony's, both are ugly btw. 36 hours of standby time? Nope nope.

36 hours standby?
Even the Gear watches get more than that.

I think you must retarded to compare car with watch..
As for watch battery life is more of concern than processor....

Are you Troll™ or another version of him,???

Smart watches that give you better then 24 hours is pretty fair IMO.

So many bitch about battery life, don't they sleep an think maybe that the watch could be charged along side their phones an tablets at that time?
They won't last like the Eco drive on my wrist an I don't expect them too, BTW that's seven years so far.

Like what is the problem beyond this, it will outlast your phone in usage as is, if your phone is always on stand by, I doubt you need a smart watch to tell you no one is msgn you.

Yeah right because you're buying it to replace your phone, future proofing it to be able to run asphalt 9 without lag. Duh watch shouldn't be made to be charged everyday, an SD 200 is even more than enough IMHO. Let's not start the spec war already.

What's the point of a smartwatch? Watches aren't popular anymore because people have cell phones. Can a watch replace a cell? No. Can a watch do anything a smartphone can't already do? No. Watches are now just pointless pieces of jewelry. C'mon.

Watches have always been a niche products. With the trend of bigger screen on smartphones, I find it annoying to take it out from the pocket just to check the watch.

I personally find watch useful, besides as a time piece (Heck, now it can collect your fitness data, show maps, etc.), and as you said, as an accessory. Your image is important too in the business world, you know.

I'd rather use watch than some rubber band, at least it has more functions.

How useful can a watch with it's tiny screen really be? Do you really want to use it for maps or are you just making excuses? Do you really want to read some scrolling text on it and try to reply? As for the business world, a smart watch is not going to improve your "image". Can you imagine seeing someone in an expensive buisness suit and thinking "wow if he only had a smartwatch to complete his look"?

I mainly use it for showing time, showing message notifications (so I can know which one needs immediate reply, which one is not, since it is a hassle to always take out the smartphone from my pocket for every messages that I received), and fitness apps (it's pretty good despite what people says, in my opinion).

It does improve your "image", and people will have the impression that you are capable to manage your time if you wear wrist watch (in general, not only smartwatch). Some people say it gave you a cool point too, not really sure about that though.

Then again, as I said, it is a niche product. It's not exactly a must have. So if people want to save their money than spend on it, I can understand.

My buddy that works at Qualcomm was testing LG & Samsung smartwatches with SD400 in them. I'm wondering if this is the LG he was testing. Also wondering if the Samsung watch was an Android wear and not a Gear watch because Tizen =/

I don't think that's right... on the Android wear teaser they showed people using their voice to text on a smartwatch, and the LG watch has Android wear, so of course it has, "Instant message."
