LG is pressing forward with its wearable strategy, building up enthusiasm for the upcoming G Watch. The smart watch has starred in another video, this time a 53 second clip that states, “LG defines the smartwatch.”

The LG G Watch is one of the first smartwatches to run Google’s new Android Wear operating system, and should be available in June for $300. As for other specs, the G Watch is “sleek and light for all-day comfort,” sports a “metal body for a timeless look,” though the video doesn’t hint at anything specific under the hood. Previous reports indicated that there will be a 1.85-inch display, 4GB of internal memory and water resistance. LG proclaims it’s “ready for anything, anytime with a single charge,” but hasn’t been explicit on battery life.

    Is this not a Google branded device? I thought it was and thought it would be a lot cheaper than $300. sigh…

      This is an LG branded device using Android and LG can charge $300 because they simply can. Take it or leave it.

    Looks not bad actually.. I’ll hold for the Moto360 though.

    If LG is moving forward to take down the Godzilla samsung, then they should definitely lower the price of this. Otherwise, samsung will still prevail due to their custom software and pricing. Sure this watch looks better but the experience won’t be as amazing. The only thing that will capture a lot of consumers is the flexibility between any device. Also the 4gb memory seems kind of useless due to the fact that the watch doesn’t even have any type of audio jack port. OR a camera. But I definitely like the new marketing theme they are going for.

      I would think the experience would be much better than the Samsung watches so far… being Google Wear and all.
