LG is developing different wearables for women, such as a stylish smartwatch, a richly decorated necklace and a wireless headset for women. The market for wearables has risen so explosively in recent years. The expectation is that this trend will continue to rise in the near future. These compact devices are no longer seen as just simple gadgets and gimmicks. Thanks to the health sensors that are built-in due to which the user receives direct feedback about his health and physical condition.
This growing market gives all the electronics manufacturers an opportunity to experiment with different designs, intended for specific target groups. For example, there are wearables that are almost gender-neutral, but there are also products that have been specially developed for only women or men. The Korean manufacturer, LG Electronics has various creative ideas for smart wearables for women, which are designed in such a way to give the appearance of a piece of jewelry, whether or not with jewelry or other decorative items.
It is concerned with the seven design patents filed by LG Electronics in 2018 with the KIPO (Korean Intellectual Property Office). The documents got approved in August 2019, and various wearable designs for women are shown in this.
From smartly designed LG smartwatches to smart necklaces and stylish wireless earphones, these products belong to the same fashion line and carry the same characteristic design features.
Two smartwatch models from LG is found in the documentation. To start with, consider the first smartwatch which is a very slim designed watch with a round case. The narrow watch band is made of very high-quality material and will undoubtedly have a shiny character, given the target group. The watchband is also provided with a snap closure on the bottom, which you may also find in conventional models.
This round screen is beautifully decorated and gracefully edited, which gives it an extra elegant appearance. It is undoubtedly the touch display. There are also no protrusions, such as a crown, that you can catch behind.

The front is covered with crystals and stones, making it a true jewel. LG has also collaborated with Svarovski in the past, such as the Swarovski Earset Concept from 2017, an AI-enabled audio device from LG. The Austrian crystal processor also seems to be a suitable partner for this piece of jewelry.
Decorative Link Chain with a Removable Sensor
LG has a necklace recorded. It comes with a link chain with a pendant in the shape of an eye. In the middle of it, a large round module is placed, in which various sensors are incorporated, including ECG and blood sugar meter, according to the brief description.
