LG G Watch is official and available for purchase on India Playstore for Rs. 14,999. The watch was extensively demoed at Google I/O last night and will be among the first Android Wear smartwatch (Other one being Samsung Gear Live) to hit the stores. It will be compatible only with Android 4.3 + devices.
Like other Android Wear watches, LG G Watch will bring Google Now functionality to your wrist. You can order pizza, make notes, set alarm, answer calls and do a lot more. Google Now is certainly a very potent tool to make your life simpler and the power to conveniently trigger it from your wrist and sync actions with all your devices, sound awesome.
Talking about the hardware, LG G Watch comes with a 1.65 Inch IPS LCD Display with 280 x 280 pixels spread across it. To put that number to right perspective, these are lesser pixels than what we saw on Gear 2 (320 X 320).
The chipset used is a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (details unspecified) and backed by 512 MB RAM and 4 GB internal storage. That sounds like more than enough processing power for your watch. All these internals will be powered by a 400 mAh battery. It also includes Bluetooth 4.0 Connectivity and 9-axis sensors.
The design language seems quite uninspiring compared to Moto 360, but it’s IP67 dust and water resistant certified. The watch is 9.95 mm thick and weighs 63 grams. You can add standard 22 mm strap of your choice. It will be available in White Gold and Black Titan color initially.
No one has been able to nail a perfect smartwatch concept yet, but we like Google Now and are excited to try it on a new Android Wear device. It will still be odd to talk to your watch while in a public place. According to Google, average user looks at his phone around 125 times per day! That sounds tedious and if my watch can reduce that by 50 percent, i might walk away happy.
