lg g watch

AT&T has announced that it will start taking pre-orders for the LG G Watch on Tuesday, July 8 for the price of $229, and that it will begin showing up for sale in its retail stores on July 11.

AT&T will be the first U.S. wireless carrier to sell the Android Wear-based smartwatch, and announced that folks who purchase the LG G3 smartphone from AT&T will be able to save 50 percent off the price of the G watch for a limited time.

The LG G watch is already available to purchase via Google Play. It has a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, a 1.65-inch 280 x 280 display, 512MB RAM, 4GB of storage and a 400mAh battery.

What do you think of AT&T becoming the first place in the U.S. to purchase the LG G Watch in a retail setting?

Wow, if Sprint offers this 50% off if purchased with a G3, I will be returning my Google Play order to purchase through them.

No need. I purchased gear fit for $99 :D

jdevenberg says:

If I had a Samsung, I'd have jumped on that deal too. However, I can't stand Samsung phones.

jayjay234 says:

It works with other android devices too. I have a nexus 5 but still bought it. Well, im getting a galaxy phone next time around anyway so it worked out for me.

I like them, once you get rid of TouchWiz. I'd have been all over that $99 gear fit too.

avenging says:

unfortunately no more deal the price went back up (but still lower than the original 199)

tx_tuff says:

But the G Watch at $115 would be a better buy for sure!

genti33 says:

unlucky..

jdevenberg says:

If they do some sort of bundle with a G Watch and a G3, that'd be fantastic.

Yea I agree

Did you read the story? G watch half off with G3. So $115 for G Watch.

aitt says:

Read? Pssh that's overrated

dwd3885 says:

I read the story and saw accessories. I guess I didn't think of the G watch as an accessory.

jdevenberg says:

I thought I did, though I see now I missed that line.

Only a single core processor? Gear 2 has a dual core...

ajpri says:

I thought the LG G watch had a dual core...

aitt says:

Why would you feel the need for a dual in a watch?

eahinrichsen says:

It would actually make a fair amount of sense, as far as I understand these things. One core could be dedicated to input from all of the sensors that are packed into these watches, similarly to how the Moto X has a core dedicated to always-on audio input.

aitt says:

But these watches don't function the same as a phone. In a sense its not processing much and there's no heavy graphics going on.

I am thinking of getting pebble, can get one for $80 on ebay and battery life will be much better and can read screen in sunlight. Might get asus watch if it costs $150 or less.

eahinrichsen says:

If you can find a Pebble that cheap, go for it.

ajpri says:

Wow! I'm a little surprised there is no price premium.

at&t just want to be first

JoeyStyles says:

All providers need to do this for any smart watch that is released 1/2 off if you get a phone by the same maker

As long as AT&T keeps their grubby paws off the software and doesn't load it with bloatware, great!

Availability
Release Date: 7/8/2014

Yes, the LG G Watch will be available to purchase tomorrow, but the LG G3 is only available for pre-order tomorrow with it being in store Friday.

This story overlooked that.

Sunofabob says:

The square watches aren't appealing. That Moto 360 is what most watches look like and it has much less bezel.

I still don't see a point to getting an Android watch when I already have an Android phone...I guess it is because I don't have a watch. Never had.
