2013 has been a great year for wearable gadgets for the leading tech companies around the world ventured into this territory through either their flagship products or prototypes. Next in line to introduce the wearable tech is LG. The rumors are rife that LG might be unveiling two of its wearable gadgets - LG G-Arch and LG G-Health at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, thanks to a report outed by Korean media. The report shares that the upcoming Smart Watch from LG could be called 'G-Arch' and the LG G-Health will be a wearable wristband to be used for fitness and health tracking wristband, dubbed G Health.
Since we haven't heard an official word from the company about the same, we aren't sure if we will actually see the devices being launched at MWC 2014 in Barcelona. Moreover, LG might also be prepping their next flagship, likely called the LG G3. Their newest offering is said to have fingerprint scanning technology, much like Apple’s Touch ID on the iPhone 5S. The G3 is also said to cobble in functionality for the G-Arch and G-Health, though we hope it doesn’t end there.
One thing is for sure - Since LG is venturing for the first time in the wearables segment, it has to learn from its contemporaries and peers that pairing them with other hand-helds might not always be such a good idea. But, according to Korean website Duam (via PhoneArena), the G Arch is likely to work in tandem with LG’s smartphones, much like Samsung’s Galaxy Gear. G Health, on the other hand, will be a Nike FuelBand like device that will keep track of your health.
