LG rumoured to be making their own Smart Watch too

If Samsung, Apple, Google and a kickstarter called Pebble can do it, why not a large consumer electronics company like LG? According to a source speaking to the Korea Times, LG has been working on their own piece of wearable technology, getting a touch screen watch ready for release.

There is no indication of when the watch will be released however the source advised that

The company has spared no efforts to invest in products that it believes are must-haves to stay ahead technology wise in the market, whatever the situation maybe

The source also declined to comment on whether the watch would run on Android or if they would use the upcoming Firefox OS which they announced they would release a phone running later this year.

It’s not really a surprise that a major consumer electronics company is looking into creating a product that the public appears to want. LG is also very well positioned to create something like this given they have an end to end capability for manufacturing all the parts of a watch. Either way this year could be a big one for watch wearers.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I’d only consider getting one if the battery life on these things are really good. A watch isn’t a necessity for me, and I wouldn’t want to have to charge the watch every few days or even weekly.

I’ve got a smart watch. It’s an Eco Citizen and it runs off the power from the sun. Now that’s smart.
