A wave of Android Wear-powered smartwatches is coming later this year, and one of the first will be the LG G Watch. Details are still sketchy, but LG has now revealed more features of the smartwatch, along with a trove of images showing the device from every angle.

The G Watch will feature an always-on display, unlike the Samsung Gear 2 and some other smartwatches on the market that require a gesture or a tap to wake up. For a device that serves, among others, as a watch, that’s a pretty important feature, though the always-on screen will surely reduce battery life. LG has not detailed how it plans to mitigate this issue.

LG will offer the G Watch in at least two color options – Stealth Black and Champagne Gold. The “minimal and sleek” device will be dust and water resistant, though LG has not yet revealed its IP rating.

The only other Google partner to reveal an Android Wear product so far is Motorola. The Moto 360 features a striking round design, but the G Watch is very attractive as well. If features were the same, which device would you pick right now?
