LG gives clearer look at G Watch with new photo

lggwatchaam

We got our first official peek at the LG G Watch shortly after last week’s announcement of Android Wear. Unfortunately, the first photo that LG showed a G Watch surrounded by darkness, meaning that only part of the device itself was visible. The good news is that we didn’t have to wait long to get a clearer peek at the G Watch.

LG’s U.K. arm today shared a bright, clear photo of a G Watch being worn by a person. The image gives us a much better look at the device’s squarish face as well as a peek at Hangouts running on the G Watch.

So that’s the good news. The bad news? We don’t really know much more about the G Watch than we did before. LG has said that it’s worked closely with Google to ensure that the G Watch works “perfectly” with Android Wear and that the wearable will play nicely with most Android devices, but the G Watch’s straight-up specs remain a mystery for now. The unit is scheduled for launch in the second quarter, though, so hopefully we aren’t in the dark for much longer.

    LG and moto really designed some nice looking smart watches. Hopefully more manufacturers will follow in their footsteps now.

    So these guys said its gonna be a dev watch for a cheaper price right? Well what would prevent the masses from adopting it at that price (android users not iOS ones)?

    I really love the build quality and round face of the Moto 360, but I have a feeling the LG watch will be $100 cheaper. If so, I am buying the G Watch.

    The one thing that I don’t get yet is why the G Watch doesn’t have a button. How are you supposed to activate the screen? I wonder if it uses the double-tap method LG introduced with the LG G2.

    Not bad. Looks like the ipod nano.
