A trademark filing for “LG G Health” apparently reveals that the South Korean company may be working on a smartwatch of its own, although nothing is yet official.
The LG G Health may be the name of such a product, according to the documentation available from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) found by Phandroid.
The document clearly mentions the fact that the G Health is a mobile device and lists “watches” as well, although the “smartwatch” term is not present:

The trademark filing has an October 23, 2013 date, although that doesn’t mean a product launch is near.
What’s clear from the name is that the device will surely have some health-related features on board, which makes perfect sense for a smartwatch.
This isn’t the first time we hear that LG is interested in making its own smartwatches, with a previous report suggesting that such a device may have a flexible display on board. According to the same report, the device could be launched at some point next year.
