LG G Watch sporting the all new Android Wear operating system
Android Wear, Android’s dedicated operating system for wearable devices like smartwatches just made headlines as it was released couple of days ago, and so did the Moto 360 smartwatch. LG G Watch is not that far behind as it becomes one of the first few devices to feature the smartwatch OS by Google that aims to be a game changer in the ever growing smartwatch market. Working in close quarters for the development of LG G smartwatch with Google, LG says that the watch will be compatible with a wide range of Android smartphones.
According to Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics
The opportunity to work with Google on LG G Watch was the perfect chance for LG to really pull out all stops in both design and engineering. With the LG G Watch, LG is continuing the milestones we’ve set in wearables following in the footsteps of the world’s first 3G Touch Watch Phone in 2009 and the Prada Link in 2008. We’re confident that a well-designed device has the potential to take the smart wearable market by storm.
In the past too LG has worked closely with Google to develop devices like Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition.
The LG G Watch will present the app developers a very low barrier entry for developers so that they can come up with cool apps that enhance the functionality of the watch itself.
There is no word yet from LG on the specifications of this Android Wear powered smartwatch apart from the probable release date sometime in second quarter of 2014.
