LG and Google to join forces on smartwatch

Will this be the smartwatch to rule them all?

The two tech giants are said to be collaborating on an Android-powered smartwatch, which could make its appearance as early as June.

And why shouldn’t they? Having worked together on crowd-winners like the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5, the companies have eked out a formula for success and are keen to take it to the next stage of wearables.

Expected to be unveiled at the Google developer event in June, much of the device’s prowess is shrouded in mystery aside from the fact that it will likely be running on an Android operating system specialised for smartwatches and possibly packing LG’s health-monitoring hardware expertise.

Does this mean we might finally be getting a smartwatch worthy of our wrists? Watch this space to find out.
