There are a slew of smartwatches hitting the market. Some are more impressive than others. The LG G Watch has some really awesome features and does support Android Wear.

One of the really nice features is that it’s water resistant and has an always-on display. This means that if you wash your dishes while wearing your watch, you don’t have to freak out and wonder if it’s going to stop working. Keep in mind that water resistant isn’t waterproof. Samsungs Gear 2 is submersible to 1 meter for a duration of 30 minutes.

It also has an always-on display which means you won’t have to ‘wake’ the device every single time that you look at it. The device will come in stealth black and champagne gold. The always-on display brings to question battery life, which has been an issue in all smartwatches to date.

LG has yet to announce the price for the G Watch and is keeping the release date under wraps as well. A source says that it will retail for $300 and start shipping in July, but that date has not been confirmed.

So, get ready for yet another voice controlled smartwatch that runs on the Android Wear platform.
