It was bound to happen eventually – the world of smart watches gaining traction among the “big boys”, so to speak. Here we are with word that the LG G Watch that is powered by Android Wear is currently being developed in a close working relationship with Google by LG. The LG G Watch will play nice with a slew of Android-powered smartphones when available, where its main purpose, apart from telling the time, would be to present relevant information to users as and when required, or whenever they just say the magic words “OK Google” to obtain answers to questions, or to get some errands done.
It seems as though LG is currently working to roll out their first smartwatch that will run on Android Wear some time in the second quarter of 2014. With Android Wear, it would offer a low barrier to entry for developers, at the same time delivering the best Google experience for users. The LG G Watch marks the fourth time that the South Korean company is working on a device in close collaboration with Google after the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition. It remains to be seen just what other kinds of hardware specifications will arise from such a collaboration, and more interestingly, how will Samsung react to the new development? [Press Release]
