This year is said to be all about wearable tech. While Samsung and Sony have already launched their wearable devices in the market, Apple, LG and Motorola are currently working on their respective biggies.
Among the upcoming smartwatches, LG's G Watch has already leaked several times in the past and yet again the device has appeared online in its full glory. This is probably the first Android Wear powered smartwatches which is highly expected to arrive at Google's I/O next week. Although, the device is not new to our sight, the latest image does give us the clearer picture of how the smartwatch will actually look like.
If you look at the image, the G Watch prompts the user to install Android Wear on the connected phone, and this supposedly means that you'd be able to have Android Wear as an installable app as well. The other things that you can notice is the charging/syncing port of the device on the left, and the rubberized matte-finish band.
LG G Watch - Rumored Specs
The LG G Watch is reportedly said to feature a 1.65-inch display offering a resolution of 280 x 280pixels and it is powered by Snapdragon 400 chip. Further the G Watch measure 37.9mm x 46.5mm and 10mm thick and weigh 61 grams. Finally, the battery on the G Watch should have a 400mAh capacity, and for about 36 hours on standby.
If pricing and availability is what are bothering you the most, it should be out in Europe this month, and elsewhere on July 1. It will be priced at €199 (approx. Rs. 16,322) in Europe, and presumably $199 (approx. Rs. 11,992) in the US.
If you are not aware, this is not the only device coming with the Android Wear. Moto 360 is another device that is also screaming to be launched. In terms of competition, the Gear 2 and Qualcomm Toq could be a potential rival.
