Smartphones definitely taught the world to move in a new direction by enhancing the lives of people, but I guess that wasn’t enough and the smartphone giants wanted to do something more out of that particular sphere and went after the concept of other smart gadgets. Right at the moment, the number of gadgets is enough to change an ordinary life into a digital one and the concept of smart watches has joined the family as well.
Sony introduced the smart watches years ago with some very basic functions e.g. notifications, alerts etc. As soon as the concept of smart watches came in the limelight, Samsung made a very fast move and introduced the Galaxy Gear and that was all, a new goal for all the smartphone giants to introduce the best watches they can and battle against each other. Recently, LG has also introduced its smart watch named as LG G Watch.
To have a start, LG G Watch is built with stainless steel and is IP67 certified that makes it dust and water resistant. Besides that, LG’s smart watch sports a very nice 1.65 inches IPS display, 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU, 512 MB RAM, 400 mAh battery under the hood and runs Android Wear atop of these nice specifications. Now that the G-Watch runs on Android Wear (Google’s Android OS for wearable(s)), you can definitely expect the great developments to happen and there surely will be a lot of stuff to experiment if you happen to be a lucky G-Watch owner, and guess what? Custom recovery and methods to gain the root privileges on the G Watch are already available.
