LG shows off the G Watch

So we've seen and heard a lot about Android Wear lately.

What?  You haven't?


Great stuff... and I have to say, seeing the images of Moto's 360 is incredibly sexy (if these concept art shots are to be believed).

But my brand preference lately has really been with LG.  I'm really liking what they've created in the past while and am waiting to see what they have in store, as I really liked the look of the LG LifeBand.

Well recently they showed on Twitter the first glimpse of their new G Watch
Gotta say, I like it. After seeing the round screen of the 360 it'll be hard to adjust back to a rectangular display, but I'm sure it'll be just fine. We received an email when Android Wear was announced from LG about their upcoming project:
LG G WATCH POWERED BY ANDROID WEAR BEING DEVELOPED IN CLOSE COLLABORATION WITH GOOGLE 
Google’s New Android Wearables Platform to Debut on LG Device 
SEOUL, Mar. 19, 2014 — LG Electronics (LG) is working together with Google on LG G Watch powered by Android Wear™, which extends the Android platform to wearables. LG G Watch will be compatible with a wide range of Android™ smartphones and will present relevant information to users just when they need it or whenever they say “OK Google” to ask questions or get stuff done. As one of Google’s lead partners in this effort, LG is planning to introduce its first watch powered by Android Wear in the second quarter of 2014. 
The LG G Watch powered by Android Wear will present a low barrier to entry for developers and offer the best Google experience for users. LG engineers worked closely with Google from the initial stages of development to ensure that the LG G Watch worked perfectly with Android Wear. This is LG’s fourth device developed in close collaboration with Google following the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition. 
“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,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “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.” 
Additional details of the LG G Watch powered by Android Wear, including hardware specifications, will be announced in the coming months.
