LG G Watch leak 1

It was last month we watch as — with the introduction of Android Wear — the LG G Watch was made official. It was hard not to get excited at the prospect of having the power of Google Now always displayed on our wrists, but it seemed LG was still keeping their cards close to their chest, providing next to zero actual details on the device’s specs, pricing, or even availability.

If LG’s recent press images weren’t quite enough for you, the folks at Pocket-Lint are now giving us another look at the watch as it appears in the wild. You’ll notice the absence of any physical buttons on the device, and and overall slim profile. Described as minimal, but “premium” feeling, LG was able to confirm that the G Watch will feature interchangeable straps, and possibly even come in a circular variant ala the Motorola Moto 360.

Unfortunately, none of the leaked shots showed the device actually powered on, leaving us to wonder about it’s performance in handling the Android Wear OS. What LG was able to reveal, was pricing and availability — said to cost around £180 and a release sometime in July for the UK. Expect lots more to be revealed at Google I/O 2014, officially kicking off in June.
