LG's G Watch rumored to land on wrists in July
LG's G Watch is anticipated to undercut Samsung's Gear 2 Neo pricing when it lands on consumer's wrists. The G Watch is reported to be debuting at a very competitive price in the UK on July 7th, roughly a week after Google's I/O conference in San Francisco, California this year.
Though neither LG nor Google have confirmed the G Watch's launch date or pricing, the information comes by way of MoDaCo's Paul O'Brien who says that LG's wearable foray will "undercut the entry level Gear 2 and massively undercut the Pebble Steel." Still, despite being believed to be priced competitively, O'Brien still thinks that the G Watch will be priced higher than Sony's Smartwatch 2.
The G Watch has popped up in the news recently as multiple outlets are reporting that the device may be one of Google's giveaways for developers to try out at the Google I/O conference that kicks off towards the end of the month. Giving developers access to the G Watch may spur interest in the Android Wear platform that powers the wearables, potentially leading to new apps and utilities to come to the smartwatch.
We'll still have to wait for an official announcement from LG.
