Report: Google Smartwatch to launch at IO 2014 in June, made by LG
According to a knower of things,*@evleaks, Google’s*long rumored entry*into the budding smartwatch market will come at this year’s Google IO in June and will be manufactured by LG.
We haven’t heard much from Google regarding a smartwatch, often leaving tech bloggers and enthusiasts to piece the puzzle together over the past year.**We know that last year*Google purchased WIMM, a smartwatch manufacturer, and quietly added the wearable company into the Android fold. We also know that Google has beenawarded a patent*or two for*smartwatches*in the past, slowly adding to the intellectual property needed for successful entry into this market.
As for LG as the manufacturer of choice, LG and Google have a good history together, producing televisions with Google TV, the**Nexus 4, and the recent**Nexus 5. In fact, it was reported a year ago that LG was getting into the*Android smartwatch craze, so this little*gem*should be right up LG’s alley.
