Android Wear-running LG G Watch gets a July launch date
LG jumped onto the wearable bandwagon with the announcement of its first smartwatch, the G Watch, in March.

The LG G Watch runs Google's Android Wear, a software project that extends Android to wearables and the South Korean company had revealed that its first smartwatch will be released in Q2 2014.

Now, LG has confirmed to Pocket-lint that the G Watch will be released in UK priced below GBP 180 (roughly Rs. 18,000) and will be available before July. As of now, the company has not revealed the complete specifications of its first smartwatch. The LG G Watch is expected to feature a 1.65-inch display with a 280x280 pixel resolution, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of built-in storage. Further, there is no word on global rollout of the LG G Watch.

Earlier, LG teased its G Watch wearable device via a single clear image in a Twitter post. The post stated "LG #GWatch - Coming Soon!" followed by an image. The image showed the G Watch featuring a square screen. The screen showed Google Hangout chats along with time on the top-left corner.

Notably, Motorola also announced its Moto 360 smartwatch running Google's Android Wear. The former Google-owned company had announced that the smartwatch would be available in a variety of styles globally in summer 2014, starting in the US. However, the company is yet to reveal the pricing of the Moto 360.

Google however, besides LG and Motorola, is also teaming-up with other firms for its Android Wear project, out of which some key manufacturers are Asus, HTC, LG, Samsung and the Fossil Group.
