At the Google I/O developer conference, everyone was talking about the LG GWatch, and how it might compare to the forthcoming round smartwatch by Motorola, the Moto360. Fast forward a few months, and we finally have a release date for the Moto360, but yet we are still being surprised by how fast the tech industry moves.
LG has announced that it will be release its own smartwatch with a round face, in a short teaser video released yesterday. While this clip doesn’t show us much, it does reveal that the watch can feature an analogue clock face and will presumably run Android Wear, the new wearable operating system developed by Google.
The LG smart watch may feature a LCD screen which stretches to all the edges of the clock face.
It is also suggested by the animation in the clip that the new unnamed LG smart watch will feature a LCD screen which stretches to all the edges of the clock face. This would make if different to the Moto360 which features a notable blacked out area on bottom of the screen where the watch face’s digitizer is located. If indeed the LG watch does not have this problem, then it might be the product which appeals much more to consumers aesthetic tastes.
It is likely that this product will be launched at the forthcoming IFA event in Berlin, which kicks off on September 3rd. Other products which we expect to be debuted there include Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 as well as an unnamed Asus wearable, and of course the Moto360. Until then we’ll keep you posted on any further developments.
