LG revealed more information about the upcoming G Watch on its new website. The smartwatch will come in two colors: stealth black and champagne gold. On top of having what is being described as an always-on screen, the G Watch will purportedly be both water and dust resistant. No release date has been stated yet.

The G Watch is one of the several new smartwatches that will be using Google's Android Wear, a version of the operating system tailor-made for wearable devices. Some of Android Wear's features include in-built access to Google Maps and the presence of Google Now, Google's personal assistant service. And given that the G Watch is always on, it wouldn't surprise us to learn later that it's always listening for "Ok Google" commands as well.
