LG Unveils LG G Watch Powered by Android Wear
Posted on March 19, 2014
LG revealed this week that it is working on a smartwatch which will be powered by Google's Android Wear operating system. The LG smartwatch is called the LG G Watch. It will be compatible with Android devices. The watch will recognize voice commands and respond when users say "Ok Google" and ask questions or give commands. LG says it will have more details on its G Watch in the coming months.
Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics, says in a statement, "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."
Google revealed its Android Wear technology on Monday. Motorola is also developing a smartwatch using Android Wear called Moto 360.
