    We heard back when Samsung released the Galaxy Gear that Google may be throwing their hat in the smart watch game. Well according to @evleaks Google will have their favorite manufacturer (LG) make the smart watch. @evleaks is reporting that it may be available at Google I/O.

    Report: Google Smartwatch to launch at IO, made by LG

    I think it will be a better watch than the Samsung watch but I still have a hard finding a reason to have one other than the cool tech factor. I'm not a cool guy nor do I have an image I feel any kind of need to protect, but talking into my wrist is something I wouldn't want to do in public. I dunno, maybe if the watch was the entire device without the need of a smartphone.

    I'd be embarrassed to wear that for anything other than jogging/working out. And maybe if it's waterproof those who just have to be constantly connected can wear it in the shower!

    What kind of statement does that watch really make? I'm too lazy to check my smartphone AND I have 0 fashion sense?
