Not too long ago, we spotted a rumor mentioning that LG is working on a wearable device, dubbed as LG G Arch, with health and fitness tracking band G Health.
Now, a new report confirms that a wearable device from the Korean OEM is on its way. The news was confirmed to Engadget by a LG spokesperson, who failed to comment on the rumors related to a smartwatch, but did confirm about wearable technology.
In case you forgot, the purported LG G Arch is expected to be a companion accessory for the possible successor of the company’s upcoming flagship device, known as LG G3, which is rumored to come with a 2K display. Additionally, it is also expected to feature a fingerprint scanner, a technology which is becoming a focus of manufacturers after Apple unveiled their iPhone 5S.
There’s no word about the launch of the device from LG, but rumors mention it will see the daylight in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress 2013, which will take place from 24-27th February next year.
Let’s just wait for LG to unveil the gadget at the event, before making any conclusions. Therefore, a pinch of salt is recommended. What do you think about all these rumors? Fire away with your thoughts in the comments below.
