LG continued to build hype around its upcoming Android Wear smartwatch today, releasing a short video teasing the G Watch to reveal a bit more about the device. We’re still not sure when the G Watch will actually hit the market, but it’s beginning to look more and more like a solid first entry from LG.
The biggest tease here is LG’s claim that the the G Watch’s battery will be “ready for anything, anytime with a single charge.” We’re not exactly sure what that means, but we’re guessing the device’s battery will last a decent amount of time before needing to recharge. The new video also confirms the device features a metal body, which should give the design a high-end look even if the G Watch really is a low-cost smartwatch. Finally, LG reaffirms the device is “waterproof for outdoor activities.”
Both LG’s G Watch and Motorola’s Moto 360 are expected to hit the market this summer, officially ushering in Android Wear. We’re eager to try out Google’s take on wearable software and contextual notifications, though for now we’re still more intrigued by the circular Moto 360 compared to LG’s blockish design. The G Watch is starting to look like a compelling device in its own right though, and we’re looking forward to testing it our for ourselves later this year.
