Possible LG smartwatch with 3G connectivity hits the FCC


The wearable industry, although still new, is gaining popularity with both consumers and manufacturers. The introduction of Android Wear which is Google’s operating system for wearables is pushing manufacturers to expand their product portfolio to appeal to the masses. One of those manufacturers, LG, has been really active lately. They released the first Android-Wear -powered watch, the G Watch. Then they announced the round G Watch R, their first full-round watch which hasn’t launched yet.

According to FCC filing, LG is working on another watch and this one will sport 3G antennaes just like the Tizen-powered Samsung Gear S (hands-on). There are 2 models listed in the documents: VC100 and VC100P. The dimesions of 57.7 x 35.5 mm suggest that the watch is rectangular, and longerr than the OG G Watch which measures 46.5 x 37.9 mm.

The filings mention that this LG 3G watch supports CDMA technology. This means that it could be headed to Verizon or Sprint. At this point, we can only speculate about the characteristics of this smartwatch. We’ll have to wait an see if it will even the see the light of day.
