LG G Watch officially announced, powered by Android Wear, coming next quarter


LG G Watch announced

LG has announced its first smartwatch based on Google's recently announced Android Wear technology. The device will be called the LG G Watch and is expected to be available in stores as early as next quarter.

This would mean that the LG G Watch will likely be released sometime around Google I/O, which would be at the end of the next quarter (it runs from April through June). President and CEO of LG, Dr. Jong-seok Park had the following to say about the device:
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. With the LG G Watch, LG is continuing the milestones we’ve set in wearables following in the footsteps 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.
However based on the name choice, it looks like the G Watch will be a part of LG's G Series and not a Google branded product. However LG wants the G Watch to be a "low barrier to entry" for developers, which is a hallmark of the Nexus line of devices. LG also wants it to be a device that will appeal to consumers.

While the device spec are still to be announced, the LG G Watch is expected to feature a 1.65 inch display and 4GB of storage.
