LG Unveils their Latest Smartwatches
What are LG’s latest smartwatch? What are its specifications? And will they be able to compete in 2017?
The South Korean Company LG unveiled their new two smartwatches to put the tech industry’s speculators at ease. LG collaborated with the American company Google to complete this project.
While corporations and companies are investing their time in manufacturing and producing smartphones and their wearable accessories (like smartwatches); other companies took the time to develop compatible smartwatches to fit smartphones from other brands.
And after large corporations entered the smartwatch industry like the American Apple, South Korean Samsung, and Chinese Huawei; LG unveiled their first smartwatch in 2017. And as mentioned above, this release was possible after LG collaborated with Google to produce them.
With the culture of smartwatches spreading all over the world, and with companies entering this market, it became necessary for these companies to develop and produce smartwatches that will please all types of customers. Adding applications, improving speed and ease of use without needing a smartphone to answer calls, reply to texts, or check notifications and emails became each of these companies’ aim.
With a smartwatch the user can control their smartphone. The user can answer calls; use the camera; use health and sports applications (that measures heart rate, number of steps, speed, etc…); use maps and navigation; and many more.
The smartwatches released by LG include: LG Watch Style, and LG Watch Sport. Both are powered by Android Wear 2 operating system. We are still waiting for them to reach the Arabian markets.
