LG joins smart watch race

It all started with Apple, now it appears all the tech companies are about to launch a smart watch.

The Korea Times is reporting that  LG Electronics is developing its own smart wristwatch. This information came courtesy of a source familiar with the matter, according to the Korea Times report.

“Korean technology giant LG Electronics is developing its own smart wristwatch, effectively joining the competition between Apple and Samsung Electronics who are doing theirs as well,” Cho Mu-hyun writes for Digitimes. “The Yeouido-based firm’s development of the next-generation watch, along with an innovative smart product similar to Internet giant Google’s Glass, was part of its long-term strategy.”

“It is one major part of many current non-commercialized products under development by LG Electronics,” said the source. “The company has spared no efforts to invest in products that it believes are must-haves to stay ahead technology wise in the market, whatever the situation maybe.”

“The source declined to comment on whether the touch-screen device will run on Android or Firefox operating systems, but both are viable options for the electronics maker,” Cho Mu-hyun reports.

It looks like the smartphone race all over again.
