Our ninjas have come back home with a very interesting bit of news all smart watch fans will love to hear. After searching through the USPTO, we found a very interesting trademark filed by LG. The Korean manufacturer has registered the name “LG G Health” and everything points towards it being the next important smart watch in the market.

Not much is detailed in the trademark filing, but we have heard rumors of such device coming from LG. Past rumors indicate that the device should be unveiled in 2014 and it will come with a flexible display (like the LG G Flex’s).

Aside from those couple details, we are left blank on information. The trademark suggests the device will be focused on health, though. This probably means it will somehow monitor your workouts and physical activity.

We hope LG executes this the right way. Smart watched often fail, whether they are built around functionality or exercise. Can LG get the right mix of both worlds? I am not sure, but I have been very pleased with LG’s work in the smartphone world lately. I have big hopes for the LG G Health.

    While I don’t currently have an LG phone, I really dig the G2. I have high hopes for this and I’m excited to see what they can do with a smartwatch! If it has a big battery and is available for all phones, I might get one, if the price is right.

    One thing LG is not good at is marketing so it will probably be DOA.

    If it looks good and has a better battery than the galaxy gear I will get one.

    LG makes good hardware, and I’m sure this watch will be better than the crap Samsung brings all the time. It’s not who’s first, it’s who does it best.

      There’s also Sony and maybe Google will have their own phone.

    Yeah I can see how a smartwatch will be good for the health/exercise crowd. (I exercise with weights so it won’t appeal to me as much as it would for someone who runs or bikes.
