The LG G Watch is one of the first smartwatches to ship with Google’s Android Wear software. First unveiled in March, the G Watch officially goes on sale at the Google Play store today, where it will join the recently unveiled Samsung Gear Live.
The G Watch has a $229 price tag, which is about par for the course with smartwatches these days.
So LG is finally breaking out detailed specs for its watch.
The G Watch features a 1.65 inch, 280 x 280 pixel IPS display, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of built-in storage, a 400mAh battery, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor.
It features Bluetooth 4.0, has an IP67 water and dust resistant case, and sensors including a gyroscope, accelerometer, and compass. It’ll be available in black or white and gold.
The LG G Watch has a bigger battery than Samsung’s smartwatch, but lacks the heart rate monitor you get with the Samsung Gear Live. Samsung’s watch also has a higher resolution 320 x 320 pixel display… but honestly, on a screen this small it’d probably be tough to see the difference.
AT&T also plans to offer the G Watch soon.
