We have known about the LG G Watch for quite a few months now. It was teased back when Google unveiled its Android Wear platform. Today at its I/O 2014 conference Google talked at length about Android Wear. It also announced that the LG G Watch will be available for pre-order starting today. On the heels of that announcement AT&T has pushed out a release, saying that it is one of the first carriers in the U.S. to offer the LG G Watch to its customers.
Powered by Android Wear, the G Watch has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and a 1.65-inch display. It has IP67 dust and water resistance certification which makes it pretty immune to the elements you’re going to face on a normal day. A handful of customizable wristbands will also be offered for you to customize the look to your preferences.
Probably the best thing about Android Wear smartwatches is that they’re not exclusive to any particular manufacturer’s hardware. The G Watch will work with any Android device that runs on version 4.3 Jelly Bean or higher.
While AT&T did confirm today that the G Watch will be available for its customers in the “coming weeks,” it didn’t say exactly when the launch will take place and how much customers will have to pay the carrier.
