Video: LG G Watch and Android Wear boot animation leaked

The LG G Watch will launch some time in July, we think around the start of the month along with the G3. But here, ahead of that, and ahead of the official Android Wear launch at Google I/O is what appears to be leaked content from the G Watch.

The first thing to look at is this video below. It seems to be the logo that we’ll see when our brand-new G Watch boots up. There’s a new-look Android logo at the end too, that appears to have grown up considerably. Gone is the slightly twee font, and in its place is a much more interesting typeface.


Also included in the leak were some images of watch faces that seem to fit with the general design of the LG G Watch. Obviously, this is LG’s square watch, although like other companies the firm is working on round faces too.

Other information points to Google Now on the watch, which was something that was hinted at a while back, and voice control was always going to be a big part of Google’s offering for Android Wear. It also looks like there might also be a calorie counter

The source of this leak @upleaks on Twitter claims too that the LG G Watch is the Android Wear reference device. Not surprising as such, because Motorola has admitted that its device is some way off launch yet. LGs, on the other hand, could be on our wrists within a month.
