According to a new report out of the UK, LG’s Android Wear-powered G Watch is set to launch in July, priced at lower than $300. While under $300 does sound nice, that could still mean $299 or $249, so it is hard to get overly excited for LG’s
plain bland-looking smartwatch.
Thanks to Pocket-lint, we are getting our first real up close and personal look at the G Watch, however, there are no pictures of the device turned on. From these new photos, it’s a pretty plain smartwatch, with a silicone band and black body. As you can see in the header image, it looks just a tad smaller than Samsung’s Gear 2 smartwatch, which is looking quite nice running Tizen.
While it may not be as pretty as the Moto 360, LG has worked closely with Google to optimize the Android Wear platform for this device. When it launches, and for whatever price they decide is right, it should operate quite well.
