It appears to be a banner day for smartwatch news. Engadget is reporting that LG is also cooking up a smartwatch of its own. It's coming out next quarter and will run on Google's just-announced wearables OS, dubbed Android Wear.

The report does not include any specs, but the existence of the arm computer has been confirmed to Engadget by LG powers that be. On top of that, Engadget points out that LG and Google have worked closely together on several past devices—two Nexus phones and a Google Play Edition tablet. So considering they've already teamed up, this would be a logical pairing. The G Watch will also draw on Nexus features you know and love, i.e. you'll be able to use all those "Ok Google" commands on your wrist thanks to Google Now. So even if you don't want a smartwatch ever, well, you will have many, many options. [Engadget]

"you'll be able to use all those "Ok Google" commands on your wrist"

I think this is the true value of developing verbal Google now commands. Even when I'm busy getting ready for work, it's still easier to just take the 10 seconds to pull the weather up by hand than ask my phone to read me the weather. Aside from hands-free features while driving, there's almost never a case with a phone where it's easier to voice command it. Watches, however, will be a different case.
