A new report from CNET is suggesting that LG has been chosen as the OEM to manufacturer the company's Nexus-branded smartwatch, and that the device will be unveiled at the Mountain View company's I/O conference in June. Furthermore, the report went on to state that Google will be unveiling more details on the device well before the conference kicks off to give developers time to create apps for the device.

The decision to chose LG is no surprise at all as Google is quite pleased with the company's partnership with LG to manufacturer the Nexus 5 smartphone as well as its predecessor, the Nexus 4. The report says that just like it did with other Nexus devices, Google will head up all sales, marketing, and media on the device, leaving LG the task of making the hardware the best it can possibly be. The Nexus smartwatch will arrive just in time to rival Samsung's new Gear 2, Apples iWatch, and even HTC's upcoming wearable. Unfortunately, unless Google and LG make something amazing, I still do not see the smartwatch making it past the novelty stage in the market.
