LG has published a teaser video showing off its upcoming G Watch smartwatch, which will be waterproof, have a square screen, and run the Android Wear operating system.
To be formally announced in the coming weeks, the G Watch will be available in black with a matching strap, and gold with a white strap. Both models will feature a metal construction.

The smartwatch, one of the first to use Google’s Android Wear operating system, alongside the upcoming Motorola Moto 360, will have its screen on constantly to show the time like a traditional watch. This is something Samsung’s Gear smartwatch range cannot do. It is claimed the LG G Watch’s battery will last for an entire day with the screen and backlight permanently on.
Although the model teased by LG has a square screen, it is understood that the company will also launch a model with a round face at a later date.
