As Google revealed its dedicated operating system for smartwatches, LG has announced that its G Watch will be out for sale in next quarter, while Motorola already unveiled its Moto 360 for this summer, both with Android Wear OS.
LG has a good history of partnering with Google for its hardware-software partnership with Nexus smartphones (Nexus 4 and Nexus 5) and Google Play edition tablet (LG G Pad 8.3 GPE). Hence, the somewhat established Korean smartwatch-maker Samsung will be getting the stiff competition from its domestic competitor.
However, Motorola too unveiled its well-designed Moto 360 smartwatch that boasts a circular, digital watchface and it will show the notifications to the user via gestures such as twisting the wrist.
Both smartwatches will be running on Android Wear software with the deep integration of Google Now, where user could check scores, weather updates, check flights or just check events on calendar by pronouncing the voice command – “OK Google.” Stay tuned for more updates on these new smartwatches.
