LG was one of the two manufacturers who immediately confirmed after Google’s announcement of Android Wear that they will make a smartwatch based on the new platform. The LG G Watch is expected to be launched at this year’s I/O conference and the company is expected to talk about it in detail at the event. While LG has already teased its new smartwatch quite a bit we’ve only rarely seen it in the flesh. Today a live image of the LG G Watch has surfaced online.

From the looks of it this is pretty much a conventional smartwatch as far as the design goes, nothing breathtaking like the Moto 360 with its beautiful round design. Its possible that the G Watch may be offered in multiple colors but then that’s expected of it anyway.

This is the first live image that gives us a good look of the display itself, which at least in this image appears to be a bit on the bluish side. Looks like an Android Wear app will be released once this device becomes available to enable pairing between the smartphone and the smartwatch. Also the charge/sync port appears on the left side of the LG G Watch.

Rumored specifications include a Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.65-inch display with 280×280 pixel resolution and a 400mAh battery. Information about pricing and availability is scarce so we’ll just have to wait until I/O 2014 for the official announcement, if LG doesn’t have any other plans.
