LG drops new G Watch teaser video; what’s up with this battery?

May 27 is two weeks from tomorrow, and that’s the date LG has picked for its next big launch event. While the menu isn’t officially confirmed, we’re sure expecting to see the debut of the company’s latest Android flagship, the G3. With a 2K resolution display, the G3 is bound to draw a lot of attention on its own, but it may not be the only new LG product taking the spotlight that day. We’ve also been looking to a more formal introduction for the LG G Watch, following its appearance alongside the Android Wear launch announcement. To its credit, LG certainly seems to be doing what it can to keep our interest in the G Watch piqued, releasing the latest teaser video for its smartwatch over the weekend.

LG touches on features like the Android platform underlying the G Watch, its premium metal construction, and the watch’s waterproofing – though in fairness all things we’ve known about before. Is there anything new here?

Well, we’re curious what LG is going for with this “ready for anything, anytime with a single charge” message. It seems weirdly obvious and not worth saying – well of course it needs to be charged in order to function – making us wonder if there’s some hidden meaning under the surface. Maybe some exceptionally high-speed quick charge action? We really want to believe that there must be something more to it to warrant a call-out like this. Maybe it’s nothing, but in another two weeks we’ll hopefully know for sure.
