LG Introduces First Device Powered by Android Wear

LG Electronics introduces the new LG G Watch as one of the first devices powered by Android Wear. Android Wear is Google's new operating system which extends the Android platform to wearables. 
As a wrist wearable device featuring a button-less design, the G Watch will appeal to a mass audience with its simple minimalist design, quick and “glance-able” access to useful information, and seamless connectivity with other Android devices, keeping users connected wherever, whenever.

  • Compatibility with smartphones running Android 4.3 or higher with the Android Wear app, available at Google Play Store
  • Simple new user experience designed around cards, which provide useful information on your wrist when it’s needed
  • Accurate voice recognition so you can get things done quickly and easily by just asking questions
  • The “Always-On” screen allows you to glance at information without having to wake the display or pressing any buttons
  • Powered by a large 400mAh battery, the largest among Android Wear devices
  • Straps are interchangeable with any standard 22mm watch band
