Another Look at the LG G Watch

March 24, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Last week, Google shocked us all. Well not really since we knew that the SDK was coming for wearables. But we didn’t expect to see wearables from both Motorola and LG already. LG didn’t really show off much of their G Watch compared to Motorola and their Moto 360. Heck, Motorola even did a Google+ Hangout answering questions about the new smart watch. While LG just posted a picture of the G Watch, which you couldn’t see much of. However today we’re seeing a new picture of the LG G Watch from LG, so this isn’t a leak or a render or anything. This is the real deal. Now compared to the Moto 360, it looks more like a smart watch and not just a watch. While the Moto 360 looks more like a watch.

Obviously, we can tell from the image above that there doesn’t appear to be any type of skin overlay on Android Wear, which is something I’ll be a big fan of because that should – in theory – mean faster updates. You can also tell that LG is going for a pretty minimalistic design here, and it looks really good. I’d have to say it’s right up there with the Pebble and Gear 2. I’m just not sure it’ll outsell the Moto 360, or even really be a contender. Of course, the pricing may change all of that.

The LG G Watch is just a square screen on your wrist. While there’s nothing wrong with that, Motorola made it a circle. Which is pretty cool and something different which will definitely differentiate themselves from all the other Android Wear devices we will see on the market in the next year or so.

What does everyone think about the LG G Watch now? Is it something you could see yourself buying and wearing everyday? Between the LG G Watch and the Moto 360, I think I’m going to have to wait and see what the release dates and pricing will be on these. Because we already heard that Motorola’s will be in short supply. Likely due to the manufacturing process for that smart watch.
