1:21 /

LG unveils its G Watch at Google I/O. The new smartwatch bears a rectangular face with the Android Wear UI.

[MUSIC] Hey everybody, it's Lynn La for CNET, and I'm here at LG's Google I/O event in San Francisco, and we're gonna take a quick look at LG's newest wearable, called the G-watch Smartwatch. In addition to the Samsung Gear Live and the Moto 360, this device is one of three smart watches that are being showcased at Google's developer conference this year. Did you want to run some Google Android ware system, and it is compatible with phones running Android 4.3 or later. It includes software features like receiving hand set notifications, and swiping them away. You can also decline an incoming call, and reply with an SMS text. And users can control their music app and record voice memos as well. As for its hardware specs, the device is dust and water resistant and has a 1.6 five inch LCD display, with a 280 by 280 pixel resolution. It's powered by a Snapdragon 400 processor from Qualcomm and a four ampere hour battery, which has an estimated standby time of 36 hours. The Gwatch is equipped with bluetooth 4.0, a compass, an accelerometer and a gyrometer. The device is available now for pre order at the Google Play store for $229 and comes in white gold or black titan. Again, I am Lynn and you have been checking out the LG Gwatch.
