Google’s keynote address was full of new reveals today, with the highly anticipated LG G Watch being one of the biggest among them.
Rumors have been circulating since April that Google had partnered with LG and Motorola to create wearable devices and today we got to see what they created for the first time.
The LG G Watch has a Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.64 LCD display with 280 x 280 resolution, 4 GB of storage, 512 RAM and a 400 mAh battery with 36 hours of standby time.
In addition, the watch will have Bluetooth 4.0, a compass, gyroscope and accelerometer. It will also be IP 67 dust and water resistant.
The watch is made out of stainless steel and silicone and weighs 63 grams.
At launch, it will be available in only 2 colors: Black titan and White Gold. The straps can be changed using any 22 mm strap that is currently on the market.
Thanks to Android Wear, you can see notifications, set reminders, use Google now from your device and interact with it through voice command.
The LG G Watch is available today for pre-order in the Google Play Store in 12 countries, including the U.S. Canada, France, UK, Italy, Germany, Spain, South Korea and Japan.
It costs $299 and will begin to ship on July 7th.
It will be available in an additional 27 countries soon afterwards.
