LG teases its new G Watch with a “hardware movie”

20


The niche for wearable smartwatches is quickly becoming less of a niche, and more of a segment of its own dilution. The G Watch by LG is different though. This “Android wear” smartwatch will be “always on” and that will come in handy since it will be tightly integrated with Google Now.

The G Watch promises to be a pretty nifty device. It will be the first wearable with Android Wear. Even better, it will be available this quarter. Price-wise, the G Watch is probably going to cost about the same as Samsung’s Gear 2.

The G Watch will accept different types of watch bands, and you can wear it in the shower. Because it is so linked in with Google Now, the watch will also respond to voice commands, so you will be able to look at your wrist and say, “Ok Google” and be on your way.

Compared to what is available right now, LG has upped the ante in what defines a smartwatch. We are looking forward to trying one on and putting it through its paces.
