New LG G Watch promo video highlights metal body, waterproof construction


Hot on the heels of its announcement of its new G Pad family of tablets, LG has taken to YouTube to tease another one of its upcoming Android products.

A new promo video posted to the official LG Mobile YouTube account highlights several of the G Watch’s features, including its metal construction and waterproof body. The full list of features named off by LG in this clip are:

  • “LG defines the smartwatch”
  • “Compatible with Android”
  • “Sleek and lightweight for all-day comfort”
  • “Metal body for a timeless look”
  • “Ready for anything, anytime with a single charge”
  • “Waterproof for your outdoor activities”

LG hasn’t gotten into specifics about the G Watch’s hardware, but it has said that the wearable will launch in the second quarter. Pricing information for the G Watch is also still up in the air, but right now it’s expected that the price could come in at around $300.

While there’s still a lot we don’t know about the LG G Watch, the fact that it’ll be one of the very first Android Wear-powered devices on the market means that it’ll likely get a lot of attention when it hits store shelves. The good news is that so long as LG can stick to its estimated Q2 launch, it won’t be too much longer before we’re able to strap this thing onto our own wrist and give it a go.

      Crack is whack. No one wants a round display. Price on this watch will determine if it’s a winner or not.

      • masterpfa

        I personally would want a round watch, so not strictly true.

        You views are just those your own personal opinion. Lets see what sells most and let people decide what format they want.

      • mattcoz

        Considering the hype over the 360, a LOT of people want a round display. I am one of them.

    metal le da un toque elegante… el precio..!! mui alto
    lo pensaria para comprarlo solo por el precio de lo demas le doi un 8.5

    I’d take the black and gold but definitely not a fan of a white/ thick rubber band. Why so much top and bottom bezel LG? If you’re getting anywhere near $300 for this thing you can look right pass me and many others.
