LG’s G Watch to feature always-on display and waterproof case

A few weeks after its initial reveal, LG has launched an official site for the upcoming G Watch, its first smartwatch powered by Google’s new Android Wear platform. It contains a smattering of new details about the wrist-worn device. For one, it’ll be available in two color variants called ‘Champagne Gold’ and ‘Stealth Black’. While the latter uses only a single color, the former swaps in a white wristband and a subtle gold trim around the edge of its rectangular display.

We’ve seen enough official product shots of the LG G Watch to know what the watch will look like when it debuts later this year. It’s black-on-black. Oh, and square… and that’s about it. Nothing too inspiring. But it seems the smartwatch will come in another color as well — Champagne Gold. LG took totheir social networks to post new images of the gold variant, feature a white rubber strap with gold accents. It’s not too flashy, and should satisfy the tastes of those looking for something a little brighter than what we original saw from the G Watch. LG also updated their landing site with additional images, showing their watches and a few more details like it’s water resistance and always-on display. We can’t help but wonder how much battery life these watches will get, and if we’ll need to be plugging in every day to keep them juiced. Expect more details like pricing and availability coming soon.
