LG G Watch Rumored To Go On Sale After Google I/O This Year

April 23, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

All the buzz around Android Wear and the LG G Watch has the community of people that are interest in wearables burning up with excitement. With few decent options currently out there for a phenomenal smartwatch that can really captivate the audience, the LG G Watch aims to grab our attention with open compatibility and sleek design. Rumors are that the LG G Watch would start going on sale sometime within the second fiscal quarter, but now the rumors are suggesting that LG could be planning on selling their new smartwatch directly after Google’s annual developers conference this year which is slated to take place on June 25th and June 26th in San Francisco. If that is truly the case then we could see the G Watch hit the market for purchase at the end of the day on the 25th or 26th, or starting on the 27th. Whatever the case is, if these rumors are to be believed, then the sale of the LG G Watch should start happening sometime during those three days.

Like all good wearables should be, the LG G Watch is dust and water resistant, which should make it an immediate hit with those that like to be active and seek to be wearing this watch all the time no matter what the weather is like. Take note runners and cyclists, this smartwatch could be just what the doctor ordered. In addition to the protection from the elements, the LG G Watch sports a more than manageable size of display at 1.65-inches, with 4GB of internal memory which should be good for storing useful things like notes, or even images or maybe even music.

The LG G Watch is slated to come in two colors, Champagne Gold and the original Stealth Black. It’s also rumored to be hitting shelves at around $300 USD going off of the exchange rate from the cost to consumer in the UK which is  £180. It sounds like the G Watch might be available for purchase a little later than some expected, but it falls more in line with when Google most likely plans to show off more on Android Wear, also rumored to be getting some time at Google I/O.
