LG and Google are working on an LG G watch running on Android platform and which will be compatible with a number of android smartphones. The LG G Watch will present relevant information to users when they need it or whenever they say “OK Google” to ask questions, or get stuff done..
The device that is expected to hit the market in the second quarter of 2014 is expected to offer developers a low barrier chance to create for wearables on the device that LG says is currently in the initial stages of development to ensure it works well with the Android wear.
Speaking on the partnership, chief executive officer (CEO) of LG Electronics, Dr Jong-seok Park, said. “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.”
Adding that “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.”
