Google has already announced its Android Wear platform for the wearable devices and LG is the first one which has revealed that it will be releasing LG G Watch in partnership with Google using the same platform.
It is reportedly said that LG and Google has worked together to bring this G Watch thus you can call it a smartwatch counterpart for the Nexus products. However, the details of the LG G watch have not been disclosed as of now, but according to the online reports you can expect to see the device sometime in the second quarter of 2014.
Moreover, the LG G watch, will be the first smartwatch to release to the market, powered by Google's Android Wear platform. It is also said that the watch will be one of the cheapest ones. Moreover, running on Android Wear, the smartwatch will support all the features like Google Now integration and rich notifications support.
Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company said, "With the LG G Watch, LG is continuing the milestones we've set in wearables following in the foot-steps 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."
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. 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.
There are hardly any information about the device as of now thus we have no option but to talk about the rumored specs. Thus earlier rumors suggested the device to come with 1.65-inch IPS LCD (280x280p), 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage.
