LG G Watch Makes Brief Appearance on German Google Play Store

According to a couple of German-based Android sites, Google updated the German Play store’s devices page at some point today with information suggesting that the LG G Watch is imminent or will at least be sold through Google Play at some point in the near future. I can’t see the text that is referencing the G Watch here in the States, but a couple of screenshots – one of which we included above – show what was likely a premature edit by Google. 

In case you need help with your German translation, the few G Watch references mention that the device will have a “constantly active display” that is never asleep. With a constantly active display, you can view the time at any time, plus new information just when you need it. Finally, the listing talks about the 400mAh battery packed in the Android Wear watch which was previously leaked.

We should point out that an actual G Watch device page was not found, only the text mentions on the Google Play devices page.

So really the only new information we are getting from this error is the idea that Google will likely sell the G Watch directly through Google Play. The G Watch is thought to be the reference device for Android Wear, so that certainly makes sense. We still do not know a price, though rumors suggest it should land below $200. Is it out of line to mark a Google I/O release on our calendars?

No mention of the Moto 360 was found.

    I could be wrong but is the always on display new information, too? I didn’t realize that was confirmed before.

      it has been talked about for a while now.

    I just wanna know date for 360!! Hoping somewhere let’s us pre-order.

    First World War 2, now you want to kill the GWatch too? Dammit Germany.

    Let’s hope Google optimized Android Wear deep down and have a really power efficient system with only a 400mAh battery inside. If it eats as much as Android does then it will fail before even selling.

      I’d personally be happy with one to two days of battery life on the early models. As Android Wear expands I would expect to see that grow into hopefully a watch that can last around a week which would be my personal sweet spot.

    Soooooooooooooo………The G…..stands for German. What are you up to over there LG?

    Depending on Moto 360 price, I may end up grabbing a GWatch. I don’t hate how it looks, and I’m really wanting a good smart watch. And might as well grab 2 LG products;)

    Of course it will be sold in the play store!
