The LG G Watch has been a popular topic in the Android world these last few days. We’ve heard rumors that it will be shown off and given away at I/O, plus we got a detailed look at its specs. The one thing that we haven’t heard much about is pricing and release date. A new rumor has shed some light on both of those subjects.
Paul O’Brien from MoDaCo says the G Watch will be priced below the Samsung Gear 2 Neo and Pebble Steel smartwatches. The Neo is currently available for $199 while the Steel costs $249. He goes on to say the G Watch will be released on July 7th in the UK. If true, this pricing and release would be incredible.
Many people have speculated that the G Watch would be the cheap Android Wear device. An easy entry level smartwatch to get newcomers interested in the platform. The Moto 360 will likely come at a more premium price tag. If the G Watch does indeed come with a sub-$200 price tag it will be a compelling device. Will you be getting the LG G Watch or holding out for the Moto 360? What price would be too much for you to get the 360?
