Submitting its own contender to the smartwatch arena, LG has just launched its G Watch with Google’s Android Wear OS. The watch features a 1.65-inch (280 x 280) IPS display, 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM and a Snapdragon 400 processor — the same found in the Galaxy S4 Mini. Other hardware features include a nine-axis gyroscope, accelerometer and compass for interaction with navigation and fitness apps.
All of this is housed inside an IP67 dust and water-resistant stainless steel case, available in both Black Titan and White Gold. Both have matching silicone bands that are swappable for any 22mm strap.
The $229 USD G Watch goes on pre-order today through Google Play in 12 countries including the US, Canada, the UK, Germany, South Korea and Japan.
