The fourth Google connected project for LG after the Nexus 4, G Pad, and Nexus 5, the LG G Watch is being developed to bring what LG claims is a “low barrier to entry for developers” while still offering “the best Google experience for users.”
“The opportunity to work with Google on LG G Watch was the perfect chance for LG to really pull out all stops in both design and engineering,” said LG’s Dr. Jong-seok Park.
“With the LG G Watch, LG is continuing the milestones we’ve set in wearables following in the foot-steps of the world’s first 3G Touch Watch Phone in 2009 and the Prada Link in 2008. We’re confident that a well-designed device has the potential to take the smart wearable market by storm.”
Pricing and availability has yet to be confirmed, though with a bit of nudging, LG did tell GadgetGuy the following:
“LG Australia is evaluating the opportunities for this exciting new product category. Once discussions with customers are finalised we will announce our local market plans for the G Watch.”
