CES 2019: LG's W7 smartwatch is coming to Australia

While LG's rollable OLED might be the star of their CES showcase this year, the company's W7 hybrid smartwatch is also getting some love with LG Australia telling us that the wearable will come to Australia in limited quantities in 2019.

The LG Watch W7 runs on Google's WearOS platform and features an on-board Google Assistant, IP68 water resistance and a unique stainless steel design that incorporates mechanical hands that allow you to use it as a traditional watch when the battery does eventually run out.

The LG Watch W7 was released in overseas markets last year but LG have remained tight-lipped about Australian availability until now.

No word yet on where the pricing for the wearable might see it fit within the broader smartwatch landscape but the news that the LG's hybrid smartwatch will be coming to the Australian market is a nice surprise.

Disclosure - PC World Australia's coverage of this year's CES in Las Vegas was sponsored by Intel and MSI who covered the costs of our flights and accommodation.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
