LG G Watch Based on Android Wear Unveiled

To know more about Android Wear and Moto 360, read this article.

We were all expecting LG to be partnering with Google for it's smartwatch and it's now official! The LG G Watch is a smartwatch based on Google latest Android SDK, Android Wear.

Looks wise, it's nowhere in comparison with the Moto 360 in my opinion, which is also based on the same software. The watch looks very basic and looks like only the essentials are included.

This is LG’s fourth device developed in close collaboration with Google following the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition.

The LG G Watch powered by Android Wear will present a low barrier to entry for developers and offer the best Google experience for users. 

LG engineers worked closely with Google from the initial stages of development to ensure that the LG G Watch worked perfectly with Android Wear.

Google officially launched the LG G Watch at Google I/O 2014 and will start shipping from June 7 in India. It is available for 15000 Rs (~250 $) in the Indian Play Store here and for 230 $ in the US Play Store which will also start shipping from July 7.
