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



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.

First of many smartwatches Apple will try to clone.

Does it include Beats audio? I don't think I want it unless it has Beats. I am so sad that Apple is buying Beats and Android devices won't have the superboombastic speaker distortion bass anymore.

Because all of a sudden, nothing in the phone or watch markets mean anything unless they have a specific branded speaker built in.

Because not all of a sudden, I was being sarcastic.

LG are really releasing some appealing products of late. I hope they release a WP handset soon. :)

This and the Gear 2 are the only smartwatches I would consider. Looks promising!

Nothing will come close to the Moto 360 when released, I just got myself a nice black Gear Neo, still I am so anxious for the full announcement of the Moto 360.

I think this smartwatch is the right choice if it costs 200$ I'm absolutely going for it... as the moto 360 will cost more than 300$

I think Motorola will keep the price of moto 360 down.This is clearly evident by the Moto G and even the Moto X
