While the world is gearing up for a full reveal of the LG G Watch and the Motorola Moto 360, 2 new smartwatches introducing the world to Google’s all new Android Wear platform, we still don’t know is exactly when we’ll be able to pick up the new wearables, and for how much.
It was only 2 weeks ago Paul O’brien of MoDaCo fame had it on good authority that the LG G Watch would launch at around $200, citing a price below that of the Samsung Gear 2 Neo and Pebble Steel. Shortly after that, online retailer Mobile Fun (UK) claimed to have pricing for the Moto 360, pricing it around $335. Today, Mobile Fun — who leaked the Moto 360’s pricing at around $335 — is piquing our interest yet again, after AusDroid discovered the online retailer throwing up the LG G Watch for pre-order at $255. You can find the smartwatch launching in 12 countries with launch dates ranging from July 7th to 9th, lining up with MoDaCo’s previous info.
Last week full specs for the LG G Watch leaked out online but didn’t really tell us much as we’ve never actually handled an Android Wear device, so we’re not entirely sure how demanding Google’s wearable OS will be on a smartwatch like this. If you’re looking to pre-order, you can grab both the black and white versions via the links below.
