Google Giving Employees A Free Android Wear Smartwatch For Christmas

Christmas is just around the corner and it is the gift giving season. So if you haven’t been out yet to the shops and picked up all those great presents you are giving people this year, you might want to get a move on. Only fourteen more shopping days left you know! If you are stuck for ideas then it seems Google are doing a pretty good deal at the moment on Chromecasts. If you buy one before December 21st then you get $20 in Play Store credit to spend. Not bad considering the device only costs $35 to begin with. Alternatively, if you want to spend a little more than you might consider picking up Samsung’s new virtual reality unit, the Samsung Gear VR. Although do make sure whoever you are giving it to, does own a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 already. It won’t work with anything else. Not to mention the recent reports on the Gear VR are suggesting it is almost out of stock.

Well, it seems Google are getting ready for their Christmas too. Googlers (the name given to Google employees) in London are starting to show off their Christmas gifts given to them by Google. It seems the giving spirit is alive and kicking at the Mountain View company as the employees are all receiving the LG G Watch this year. Well, at least those in London. You May have thought Google would have wanted to give away the Google Nexus 6 to its employees this year. After all, this is the hot-to-have smartphone this Christmas. But, it doesn’t seem to be the case. I guess even Google are having trouble getting hold of the unlocked Nexus 6’s too.

Either way though, a free LG G Watch is not too bad for nothing. Not so good of course, if any of them are running an Apple device. So what is on your Christmas wish list this year? Are you receiving any interesting gifts from your employer? If you are stuck for ideas on what to get people then maybe it is worth checking out our android gift list for a few last minute offerings.
