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.....

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 can stream ABC content using either the iView app on our LG G1 65" OLED, or via the iView Android TV app that is installed on a Chromecast with Google TV that is plugged into one of the G1 HDMI ports. If I stream content using the app on the TV, every few minutes there's a momentary (fraction of a second) interruption to both sound and video. If I stream the same content using the app on the Chromecast, I get no such interruptions. Both TV and Chromecast are using wired Ethernet connections to the same switch, so I can't see that these interruptions are due to a network problem, or I'd see them on both devices. It would seem to be a problem with the app provided on the TV. Other streaming services that we access via apps on the TV (Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime, etc) do not show the same problem.

      Build Your First App for webOS TV
      Web apps are written using HTML with copious amounts of CSS and JavaScript for style and functionality. Any modern Web browser can deliver this type of apps to the user.  With webOS TV, web apps are elevated to the lofty title of a first class citizen - web apps on webOS TV are given access to the same hardware, and OS features that typically available to native apps.
       
      Web apps built for webOS TV are very similar to standard web apps. Like the standard web applications, you can create web apps for webOS TV using standards based web technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Anyone with experience in building web applications can easily start developing web apps for webOS TV.
       
      Now, just create your app using the CLI.
      Run the webOS TV CLI.
       
      Create new app with Enyo bootplate.
      ares-generate -t moonstone-2014 first-app Now you can continue developing and testing your app.
       
      Edit ./first-app/appinfo.json file. Update "id" and "title" properties in appinfo.json file with text editor as below.
      {
          "id": "com.yourdomain.app.firstapp",
          "version": "0.0.1",
          "vendor": "My Company",
          "type": "web",
          "main": "index.html",
          "title": "singlepane",
          "icon": "icon.png",
          ...
      }
       
      Package your app from app directory. If app is packaged successfully, you can see the created .ipk file.
      ares-package first-app  
      Run the webOS TV Emulator.
       
      Install your app to emulator. Be sure to use the correct file name for your package.
      ares-install com.yourdomain.app.firstapp_0.0.1_all.ipk  
      Launch your app on emulator.
      ares-launch com.yourdomain.app.firstapp
