lg-webos-smartwatchWhen it comes to smartwatches, Google has Android Wear which is a version of Android developed for wearables. Heck, even the Apple Watch appears to be running a modified version of iOS. Now as far as other platforms are concerned, Tizen is another player in the market and can be found in the Samsung Galaxy Gear and Gear 2.

While LG has released Android Wear devices like the G Watch and the G Watch R, it seems that the South Korean tech company has plans to release a webOS based smartwatch as well. This is thanks to LG’s developer website (via The Verge) which showed off the image above, which is the Bean Bird from LG’s webOS TV carrying a watch on its back.

Now the page has since been taken down which we can only speculate is because it is a project that LG has yet to formally announce, so assuming that the rest of the information is accurate, it really does seem that LG could be thinking about developing a webOS based smartwatch.

Will webOS be able to deliver a better experience compared to Tizen, Android Wear, or iOS? We guess it remains to be seen, but according to LG, we might never find out. When asked about it, the company replied by saying that “there are many initiatives going on at LG at any given moment. The majority of them never see the light of day.”
