This year at Google I/O the official release of Android Wear was announced. Along with this announcement the reveal of three Android Wear devices out on display for attendees to check out were the Samsung Gear Live, Motorola 360 and the LG G Watch. Those who attended I/O will be getting the Moto 360 (upon release later summer 14′) and a choice of either the LG or Samsung.
The LG G Watch is a watch that gives you useful information when you need it without getting in the way of allowing you to continue to get stuff done. Currently the LG G Watch is only compatible with Android devices running 4.3 and up.
Currently the watch comes in two different colors; Black Titan and White Gold. Regardless of the color of the watch it has a standard band size which allows consumers to replace the sporty rubber band with any band of choice.
