LG G Watch Android Wear Smartwatch Specs, Price, Release Date Leaked [Images]
The future of technology well and truly lies in wearables. And at the forefront of this race are big names like Pebble, Motorola with their recently announced Moto 360, and LG with their G Watch offering.
The announcement of the Moto 360 and LG G Watch came when Google unveiled its Android Wear smartwatch OS back in March of this year, giving manufacturers and developers alike a platform to come up with interesting smartwatches with great smartphone-connected features.
The aforementioned smartwatches gained storm due to their unique form factors and unique feature sets, but at this point many key details are missing in action, such as the internal specifications of the smartwatches themselves. But today, thanks to a leak courtesy of UpLeaks on Twitter, we can get a fairly good idea about the muscle which the LG G Watch packs once it lands on our wrists this summer.
So, what will we get when the G Watch manifests itself this summer? For starters, it will come with a 400mAh lithium-polymer battery giving it a stand-by time of 36-hours, and has the capability to charge from zero to full in under 2 hours.
On the display front, the G Watch features a TFT LCD display (no OLED, sorry), and packs a screen resolution of 280×280 on a 1.65-inch panel.
Coming to the wireless end, the G Watch will be able to pair with your smartphone using Bluetooth 4.0, assuring that you get through your day thanks to its low power nature.
The complete set of tech specs for the device is rather extensive, and we’ll leave it for you to rip it apart:
On paper, the G Watch looks quite impressive, but it’s the real world performance that matters the most. And judging by the specs of the device, we’re certain that the G Watch won’t last more than a day on a single charge, provided you’re not a data and battery gobbler by nature.
It’s also being reported that the G Watch will be given to Google I/O attendees as a freebie, which shows how much Google wants to push its smartwatch effort to developers. And while we don’t have a concrete date when the G Watch will be available to consumers, but several reports flying around suggest that LG’s smartwatch effort will start retailing around the July 7th time-frame, and will come with a price tag of around $285.
