Just yesterday, LG announced three new tablets in its LG G Pad lineup. While these tablets will be showcased at the MedPi 2014 event in Europe, the company has not yet revealed as to when it will release its first smartwatch. Given that LG is keeping a special press conference on May 27, which is just a few days away, it’s quite likely that the smartwatch will be shown off at the event, along with LG G3.
But in order to build some excitement among fans worldwide, LG has just released a promo video revealing its LG G Watch. The video does not tell anything about its specifications; however, it gives fans a 360 degree view of the upcoming smartwatch.
The promo video starts off stating that LG will define the smartwatch. While LG may not be the first company to announce a smartwatch, G watch is going to be the first smartwatch running on Google’s Android Wear platform which is made for wearables.
The rest of the video highlights the design. The watch will come with a sleek metallic finish and will be lightweight and comfortable to wear. LG claims that the device will be ready for anything, anytime on a single charge, which could mean that the company may have incorporated some new battery technology.
Battery life has always been a major issue with wearable devices and given their small form factor, it’s hard to incorporate a powerful battery on to the device. But as science is progressing, new and better battery technology are making its way into new products and hopefully LG’s smartwatch too comes with a powerful battery. Anything above 3-4 days can be considered good at this stage, but let’s hope that it’s even better. The recently released Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 gives about 2-3 days of battery life with moderate use, so one can expect G watch to feature a similar battery life, if not more.
The video further adds that the smartwatch will be compatible with most Android devices. It will be dust and water resistant too. Other details which were already revealed a while back, shows that the G watch would accept voice commands, and so will other smartwatches running Android wear. So, the user can start voice commands by simply uttering the words ‘Okay Google’.
The device is expected to be shown off at the May 27 event and will most likely hit the markets by the end of second quarter of 2014.
