LG G Watch UK release date and price confirmed

Following the device’s Google I/O showing, the LG G Watch UK release date and price have been officially confirmed.

The first Android Wear powered smartwatch, the LG G Watch UK release date has been confirmed for next Friday, July 4, meaning eagerly early adopters need wait just one week to get their hands on the Motorola Moto 360 rival.

As well as being confirmed to be heading for an early July arrival, the official LG G Watch price has been announced, with the square faced timepiece to set wannabe owners back just £159.

This relatively wallet-friendly price tag is significantly lower than the £300 charged for the original Samsung Galaxy Gear just last year, or the £250 currently being asked for the existing Gear 2.

It is also a full £10 cheaper than the £169 being asked the the fellow Android Wear offering, the Samsung Gear Live, a device which will land three days after the G Watch on July 7.

The LG G Watch features a 1.65-inch display with a lowly 280 x 280 pixel resolution. Although such a small display does not require a super high resolution panel, this showing sees it fall behind the 1.63-inch, 320p Gear alive.

Further LG G Watch specs set to feature include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 400 processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and a 400mAh battery.

The LG G Watch is available for pre-order through the Google Play store right now. Both the White Gold and Black Titan iterations are being listed alongside the promise orders will be “dispatched from [the] warehouse by July 4”.
