Found 23rd Apr 2015
The LG G Watch has been out for some time. While not perfect it still supports the Android Wear platform and has been upgraded.

Amazon.de are selling the watch for £85.57 (The price Amazon convert to £). You can elect to pay in Euros and you will save £2 but please not some banks charge to use your card for purchases outside the UK.

Here are some details on the Watch and the functionality you can expect, THIS DOES NOT CONTAIN A HEART MONITOR

Product Description
After a long history of successful collaboration, LG and Google have combined forces again to bring you the LG G Watch, powered by Android Wear. It's intuitive and comfortable, bringing the info you need to your wrist. And, it is so friendly and easy-to-use that with its extended connectivity, life will truly be more simple and convenient.

The LG G Watch will work with any Android Smartphone running Jelly Bean 4.3 and higher, opening up endless possibilities (compared to other smart devices which will only work with same brand smartphones).

The G Watch's beautiful display, slim design and long battery life make it remarkably comfortable to wear, all-day, every day. It's available in a range of stylish colours, and can be customised with any standard 22m watch strap, so your G Watch can instantly become a part of your style.

The G Watch never sleeps; its always-on display allows you to check the time and see new information at a glance without touching it, and the powerful yet compact battery will keep your watch going all day on a single charge. Don't worry about it getting dirty either, G Watch is both water-and dust-resistant (IP67 certified).

Android Wear organises your information, suggests what you're going to need, and shows it to you before you even ask, such as weather forecasts in the morning and flight time and gate information before leaving for the airport. Just say "Ok Google" to ask your G Watch questions, like how many calories are in an avocado, what time your flight leaves, and the score of your favourite football team.

Something else to consider is that it doesn't have the hardware to access WiFi. So despite Android Wear getting an update that enables Smartwatches to connect to smartphones via WiFi, because it doesn't have the hardware the LG G Watch isn't able to connect to the smartphone via WiFi.
The G Watch R and Watch Urbane smartwatches do carry the necessary WiFi component however.

Not sure how useful the WiFi feature will end up - keeping both watch and phone WiFi on will draw more power than just BT. Would be nice to have if the watch ends up getting more stand-alone functions without phone - but depends on cost.
I got this for similar cost last year and even without WiFi great value until the better watches come down in price - some are over 2x more!

Depends if that is a feature you want and are willing to pay extra for. As a standard device I think it's good value.

True, I wasn't panning the deal, just wanted to give a heads up. I was on the verge of buying one until I read about that.

Sorry wasn't hitting out, I think your point is a good one and worth considering if that is important to you.

Got one last week , love it... Battery lasts well and for an impulse purchase I'm well chuffed. Spotify controller works well and there's loads of watches faces to choose from. Heat.

Too old and lacking wifi. £50 and maybe
