LG's first wearables to be called the G Arch and G Health
LG made its wearables debut with the GD910 in 2009
Equally as unconfirmed is the information about the launch of LG's first modern wearables supplied by the report, which puts the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 as the likely venue of the South Korean underdog's entry into the fledgling industry. Obviously, while we've known about LG's plans to entertain the possibility of wearables managing to entrench themselves into our lives (much like smartphones), there's honestly no telling whether the mobile expo over in Barcelona will see these materialize.
Information about the innards of both these devices is palpably scarce as of this writing, though we are led to believe that, for its part, the G Arch will work in tandem with an LG phone (no word on whether all Androids qualify), while G Health is supposed to work much alike to Nike's Fuel Band series. In any case, February, which is when the MWC will take place, isn't too far off now, so we'll keep you posted as soon as we start hearing more.

LG is better than Samsung in term of R & D whereas Samsung wins in marketing strategy.

How come when all the phones LG released are Galaxy-wannabes? Just see how the G phones and its UI look. LG will always be an underdog emulating Samsung.

I wonder what the price in 2009? I would have bought one if I have seen them within affordable price range.

the best usage of a smartwatch is to wear it for cheating on exams! PHD here I come!

Someone forgot to mention the LG Prada in 2006 with the Smart-Watch.

I don't believe the Prada had an OS to be considered a smartphone.
