LG G Watch could be released immediately after Google I/O
Last month, when LG announced its G Watch, it said that the device would be available in the second quarter of the year (between April and June). Now, thanks to Korean website News1, we’re hearing that LG is planning to start selling the G Watch immediately after Google I/O - which will take place between June 25 and June 26 in San Francisco, California.

Most probably, Android Wear (which powers the G Watch) will also be detailed during Google I/O. Besides Android Wear, the LG G Watch features a dust- and water-resistant body, an always-on 1.65-inch display, and 4GB of internal memory. 

It’s said that the G Watch will cost less than £180 in the UK, where it’s supposed to be launched “before July.” Should we expect the smartwatch to cost less than $200 in the US? Perhaps not, since £180 means $300 at current exchange rates. Anyway, we’ll certainly hear more about the device in the near future.

The G Watch will be the world’s first Android Wear-based product. Later this year, other smartwatches running Android Wear will be introduced by Motorola (Moto 360), Samsung, and other companies.
