The smartwatch is said to be the Nexus equivalent of smartwatch products, and will support features like Google Now integration and rich notifications support.

According to an Android OS report, Jong-seok Park, the president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company said, “With the LG G Watch, LG is continuing the milestones we have set in wearables following in the foot-steps of the world’s first 3G Touch Watch Phone in 2009 and the Prada Link in 2008. We are confident that a well-designed device has the potential to take the smart wearable market by storm.”

Moreover, the company desires that the LG G Watch be a “low barrier to entry” for developers, hence it is likely to be a limited availability device. The Android Wear powered smartwatch supports Google Now.
