Report: LG G Watch will cost less than $200


LG G Watch

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?

Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.

  1. I want both to go with my Pebble…

    1. How many wrists do you have!? ;)

      1. Dude what are you talking about? You gotta wear them all on one, chicks dig it!

      2. LoL

      3. He’s gonna put one on his ankle for RunKeeper duty.

  2. Have a really nice looking square smartwatch already. 360 or go home.

  3. $250 or less with the 360. And 5 days standby time.

    1. 5 days for a first generation Android Wear smartwatch? You’re out of your mind.

      1. I mean moto did do wonders for battery life with the droid maxx. Never know what their killer feature is. And I’m very sane.

  4. Yea I’d be interested in one at that price…

  5. if the lg is 200 and the moto is 250, moto all the way, if the gap gets to 100 though that makes thing tougher

  6. 360 or bust.

    1. It kinda has that movado bold design to it. I will be getting one for sure.

      1. yes..probably the best looking yet (M bold black-ishh). funny all rumor iwatch sport the round design yet 360 is already set.

    2. The 360 wins in the sexiness department that’s for sure. I can’t wait to learn more about the 360, such as features and specs. We just don’t know anything yet.

    3. I’ll go for a 360 if the screen is highly readable in sunlight and the battery life is better than 2 days of use.

    4. OMG, that picture makes it look so thick. I think I’m falling out of love with the 360.

      1. Tou have to have room for internal components.

      2. A regular mechanical watch isn’t any thinner.

  7. Holding out for the 360! I’ve already have money set aside and ready to purchase on release.

  8. 198.99. If the 360 is $100 more than the G it better pack a punch or I’m ignoring it

  9. I always said that LG better price this thing under $200. If not is already dead and a waste of time
