The new Android Wear smart watches started shipping out yesterday, and the guys from iFixit have already managed to get their hands on the LG G Watch.
As usual they decided to take the device apart to find out what was inside this new smartwatch, and we get to have a look at the components, and also find out how easy the device is to repair.
So far we know that the LG G Watch is powered by a quad core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 4009 processor, and it comes with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage.
The device also features a 1.65 inch IPS LCD display that has a resolution of 280 x 280 pixels, and it connects to your Android device with Bluetooth 4.0, it also comes with a 9 Axis Accelerometer, compass and Gyro.
So how well did this device do on the iFixit repairability index, the company scores devices on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being the hardest to repair and 10 being the easiest.
It looks like the LG G watch performed very well in their tests, it managed top score and impressive 9 out of 10, which means that it should be easy for anyone to repair.
The only thing about the device that stopped it from scoring 10 out of 10 was a fused glass display, which is glued onto the front of the device, this makes replacing the display harder.
