Ever since Google unveiled Android Wear we have been wondering just what OEMs will be able to create for that platform. LG and Motorola were the first to confirm their Android Wear smartwatches. While there have been many rumors about both it is still not known for sure when these smartwatches are coming out. According to a new rumor the LG G Watch release might have been penciled in for July 7th.

Another rumor suggests that LG will formally unveil the G Watch at Google I/O 2014 later this month. Apparently the smartwatch will be a part of the goodies that Google gives I/O attendees every year, it would certainly make sense for the company to do this, its an easy way for Google to get the device to thousands of developers in just one day.

Word on the street is that the G Watch will be competitively priced, perhaps even lower than Samsung’s new smartwatches. Price is certainly a major factor in attracting prospective customers and LG can get a leg up if it undercuts Samsung. The July 7th release is actually expected to take place in the UK, no word as yet when it’ll make its way to North America.

Motorola’s smartwatch, the Moto 360. might also be officially unveiled at Google I/O 2014. There are also rumors about another OEM showing off an Android Wear smartwatch at the conference, it may be Asus but there’s no confirmation of that as yet.
