Most smartphone and tablet manufacturers have already seen the potential for the demand of feature-packed watches and after Apple, Google and Samsung, LG is the next to join in the race. It recently announced that it will release its smart watch soon and we'll just have to wait and see which company launches a good smart watch first.
No details like specs and the kind of OS that will be used were provided by the Korean Times, which reported the company's announcement. However, LG will purportedly introduce a smart watch that has messaging and call capabilities and will most likely use Android or even quite possibly, the Firefox OS.
It can also be recalled that LG has previously released a smart watch that notifies the user for calls and alerts with the Prada II. However, for some reason, folks were not yet ready to embrace the technology much like they do with smartphones and tablets. With everybody announcing a smart watch announcement, now might be the best time to introduce a smart watch and LG is right on track.
There's really no stopping major tech companies like Google from building their own smart watch. While there have been a few that have delved in this technology, not a single watch has captured the interest of the market and somehow, we're all still waiting until something feature-packed gets introduced.
If this were true, Google might be in the running for being the first to provide consumers with a wearable Android smart watch that does not fall short on its capabilities.
These rumors may even actually have a basis because in 2011, the company patented a plan for a smart watch that is still waiting to materialize. It had a mounted camera and a flip cover that could display information, similar to what the Google Glass can do. It sounds so real that even The Financial Times cited an insider confirming this plan, saying that it will most certainly happen soon. Let's just see who gets to launch a smart watch the earliest.
