Yesterday, we received the exciting news that Google would finally be getting into the wearable tech ring with Android Wear. Now, it seems Google is really getting the ball rolling by teaming up with LG to launch the G Watch, a smart watch powered by Android Wear.


The LG G Watch will work with a multitude of Android smartphones and will respond to users’ commands following “OK Google.”

You can expect the LG G Watch to make its way into the market starting in the second quarter of 2014.

LG is no stranger to Google collaboration. LG Has also worked with Google on the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition.

Dr. John-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company said in a press release:

The opportunity to work with Google on LG G Watch was the perfect chance for LG to really pull out all stops in both design and engineering. With the LG G Watch, LG is continuing the milestones we’ve set in wearables following in the footsteps of the world’s first 3G Touch Watch Phone in 2009 and the Prada Link in 2008. We’re confident that a well-designed device has the potential to take the smart wearable market by storm.
