The Verge has found an LG-sponsored website, since pulled, that promises a development kit for a webOS smartwatch is coming. Ironically, the reveal comes only a few months after LG lost two webOS designers to wearable rival Pebble.....

There is also a rumor going around that this was one of the plans before some of the developers left to go work at pebble. LG has not commented to say yes or no at this point. January will be CES 2015, maybe an unveiling?

That would really be something! LG's success with webos relies heavily on how they go about making their ecosystem of apps. TVs, smart watches, appliances, and phones all tied in and working together could make quite an ecosystem and lead to addon sales for them. My suggestion would be to release a phone and tablet with an android app compatibility layer and tap into that ecosystem while they build theirs.

 is reporting on the rumor of webOS powered smartwatches at CES next month. Translation via Google translate.

 

"A few weeks ago we reported on LG's may first standalone SmartWatch with a built-LTE module. Now the rumors that those will be operated with webOS.

In October, fueling rumors (we reported), the most likely made a webOS-powered SmartWatch. At the time, published LG accidentally a special page on your website, which was on webOS for smartwatches advertised. After a few minutes that was offline again. It had been an accidental release.

 

This fact makes with respect to the latest rumors lot of sense: Prefer LG to bring out an independent clock of smartphones, it must be simultaneously dispensed with Android Wear. Just like it did at the Samsung Gear S with Tizen, would also own operating system used. And that will be LG's webOS, which is already used on some televisions of the South Korean manufacturer is used.

 

Analysts expect the release of wearables in time for CES 2015 in early January in Las Vegas."

That doesn`t matter.The important thing is that WebOS is better than all other OS...The Rest is a question of time..

 

Apple for example will never get the worlds best OS for TV´s because LG has it already.An thats one of the greatest Problems the other Players in the Market have in future!

 

And now the market with the watches: Great WEBOS!

Laughable at best.  They can't even support their TV's that have WebOS.  I would never buy any of their products again.

 

Unfortunately this is the issue when you are an early adopter. I agree that it stinks. Maybe LG could at least speed up webOS 1.0 and add some tweaks. I'm not sure why they will not go backwards except that maybe they needed some kind of hardware tweaks for webOS 2.0.

      I have
      LG webOS TV UF950T,
      software version 04.06.00
      1.)  WebOS is getting updates but new  apps are not showing up in LG  Content store.  When I visit 
      link hidden, please login to viewthrough my Tv browser there are many new Apps which are not in LG content store.         When i try to install , it says  not compatible with your Tv. 2) When i try to play a video some times it says video format not supported and some times audio format not supported like with opus & ogg.
      My question is to Manufacturers/ WebOs designers if this is the case what is the point in updating TV, when there are no apps or support for new video or audio formats ????
      In this case its like if i want new apps, I have to buy a new TV, updates are not helping in improving TV in any ways, no longer a Smart TV
      lol
