LG Electronics is working together with Google to develop the LG G Watch powered by Android Wear, extending the Android platform to wearables.
The LG G Watch will present relevant information to users when they need it or whenever they say “OK Google” to ask questions, and will be compatible with a wide range of Android smartphones.
“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,” Dr Jong-seok Park, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of LG Electronics, said.
“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.”
LG is planning to introduce its first watch powered by Android Wear in the second quarter of 2014 as one of Google’s lead partners in this effort.
