LG was expected to be first out of the gates with a smartwatch based on Google’s (GOOG) new Android Wear operating system. Samsung (SSNLF) rained on that parade by introducing its own Android Wear device — the third round of wearables that company has released this year after the Gear 2 and Gear Fit — but it was the LG G Watch that snagged the pre-release hype and enjoyed the majority of the spotlight at Google’s I/O conference.
The G Watch is available now at Google Play and if you want to save some cash on a smartwatch and new Android smartphone combo, AT&T (T) started a promotion on July 8 offering a half-price G Watch with the purchase of an LG G3 or G Flex phone.
Is this Android Wear smartwatch worth paying $229 (or $115 if you go for that half-price deal), or should you wait for the next wave of devices like Apple’s (AAPL) highly anticipated “iWatch” to arrive?
