Smartwatches and other prime wearable devices are getting plenty of buzz lately. The wearable tech is yet to explode fully; however, South Korean giant LG sees it as a big opportunity to tab this emerging market on the cost of Samsung and other players. The company today released a promotional video of its G Watch ahead of the global debut this July.
The brand new 53-second promo video for their Android Wear-powered intelligent watch is compelling, and at the same time promise to ‘define ‘the category. The video teaser goes on to describe to LG G Watch as being waterproof, "ready for anything, anytime with a single charge," and sporting a metal frame and "sleek and lightweight" body.
Going by the video we've also found couple of quick glimpses of the UI, besides the shot of the device (both the Gold and Black models). The official promo video released on the YouTube account highlights several of the G Watch's features, including its metal construction and waterproof body. So far, LG hasn't share the price or retail availability of the G Watch. Previous rumors in the past suggested the G Watch to be priced under $300 (about Rs. 18,000 approximately).
While there's still a lot we don't know about the watch, but the fact remains that it will be the first Android Wear-powered device to be made available in the market.

A Big Threat to Samsung Gear Series
While the first Samsung Galaxy Gear was not able to shine much in the wearable tech world, however Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo - Samsung's second-generation smartwatches along with Gear Fit made an impact on the tech enthusiasts and are declared hit.
But the question is, should Samsung be scared of the upcoming LG G Watch? Well, the answer according to many tech analyst might be yes! As LG has always been quite a show stealer when it comes to innovation. At the same time, LG's website has reportedly mentioned that the G Watch will be available in "stealth black" and "champagne gold" and the screen is always-on. Which directly points at some wondrous battery life.
