“As one of the first to market with Android Wear, LG wanted to develop a product that functions as an essential companion device but most importantly, was simple to use. We wanted a device that would be simple to learn and so intuitive that users wouldn’t even have to think about how to use its features. That’s what the LG G Watch is all about,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
To remind you, Android Wear brings features like Google Now, voice actions, and support for third-party apps.
“Android Wear organizes your information, suggests what you’re going to need, and shows it to you before you even ask, such as weather forecasts in the morning and flight time and gate information before leaving for the airport,” stated Google.
