We had heard rumors that the LG G Watch would be launching alongside the LG G3 at AT&T. And now we know that it is. We just heard that AT&T was launching the LG G3 on July 11th with pre-orders starting tomorrow and it's the same deal as with the LG G Watch. Launching July 11th and pre-orders beginning July 8th. They are going to be selling the LG G Watch for $229, so you're not really saving any money compared to buying it from Google Play. But what this will allow is for more people to see the LG G Watch in action before deciding on whether they should buy one or not. The LG G Watch isn't the prettiest looking Android Wear smartwatch out there, but it does it's job and does it well, which is what we expect.
We've got the full press release down below.
