Google didn’t give out too much info on the LG G Watch during its I/O keynote, but, LG had plenty to say after the keynote ended, with pricing, availability, and specs for LG’s Android Wear smartwatch.
LG’s smartwatch will be priced at $229 and will ship “around” July 7th. With voice recognition, the LG G Watch can be used without any buttons or keys. Users can send text messages and search for useful information just by saying, “Ok Google”.
The G Watch will feature a 1.65-inch 280×280 resolution “always-on” display and uses an LCD IPS display rather than AMOLED.
LG’s smartwatch is powered by a Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, and has 4GB of storage and 512MB of RAM. It measures 37.9 x 46.5 x 9.95mm and weighs 63g, which makes it slightly smaller than the Gear 2. It will come in two colors – White Gold and Black Titan – and is IP67 water resistant. It has a 400mAh battery inside, which is bigger than the Samsung Gear 2 (and Gear Live’s) 300mAh battery.
