LG premieres G Watch in teaser video, release date set for July 2014


South Korean tech company LG recently posted a teaser video of its new, Android-powered ‘G’ smartwatch, which claimed to define what a smartwatch should really be. The company’s new video showed features of the highly anticipated device, which include a metal body, as well as a sleek and lightweight design.

The video says that the latest smartwatch is ready for anything, anytime with a single charge. The end of the video also features shots of white and black models. So far, price or release date have not been confirmed by the company. Earlier rumors have suggested that the device might be priced at a sub-$300 and is expected to be launched in July 2014.

The video has also mentioned that the device will be waterproof, but no other details have been provided on what level of protection it will have. There are hopes that the device can be worn in the shower, without the fear of ruining it. There will be a five-pin connector on the rear of the device which will help it to charge through a microUSB and will be similar to the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear Fit.

LG’s smartwatch will reportedly have a 1.85-inch display and 4 GB of internal memory.
