LG has also posted a new video showcasing its upcoming Android Wear-based G Watch
For those already familiar with LG’s G Pad Android tablets, you know that the South Korean electronic giant already makes available it
G Pad 8.3
. While the G Pad 8.3 strikes a nice balance between smaller 7” and larger 10.1” tablets, LG isn’t content with providing a “one size fits all” solution.
So today, LG has announced three new models to the family that include 7”, 8”, and 10.1” G Pads. All three of the tablets will feature QPair 2.0 (software which pairs via Bluetooth with your smartphone and provides incoming call/messages notifications on your tablet) and Knock Code (allows users to power and on and unlock their tablets by “knocking” on the display in a pattern of two to eight taps).
Pricing, availability, and specifications for the new G Pad 7, G Pad 8, and G Pad 10 haven’t been presented at this time, but LG promised to provide details in the coming weeks.
In other LG news, the company has posted a teaser video that showcases its upcoming G Watch that runs
Google’s Android Wear mobile operating system
. Like the new G Pads, full specifications aren’t available at this time, but the G Watch will features a metal body that is water- and dust-resistant and can last all day on a single charge.

Value or not, a lot of the issue is that they just do not presently offer any features that the majority of people could actually benefit from. In it's present form, it's more a gimmick than anything else.

I wouldnt say "gimmick" as much as just OEM's trying to create a new market that doesnt have alot of "need" like smartphones did... Smartwatches would be good for the runners or the exercise/fitness crowd in general. Working out with a watch instead of a phone bouncing all over would work well... I think they would do better to focus marketing there.
