LG G Watch will be compatible with Android smartphones and will present information to users just when they need it or whenever they say "OK Google" to ask questions or get stuff done. LG is planning to introduce its first watch powered by Android Wear in the second quarter of 2014.

The LG G Watch powered by Android Wear will present a low barrier to entry for developers and it should offer the best Google experience for users. LG engineers worked closely with Google from the initial stages of development to ensure that the LG G Watch worked with Android Wear. This is LG's fourth device developed in collaboration with Google following the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition.

"The opportunity to work with Google on LG G Watch was the perfect chance for LG to really pull out all stops in both design and engineering," said Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
