All three companies are said to be readying smartwatches for Google's event next week, kicking off the Android Wear initiative.

Android Wear is expected to feature prominently at this year's Google I/O conference, which kicks off this Wednesday in San Francisco. The new initiative is Google's hope for taking smart wearables to the next level and a number of companies should have products ready.

According to a report by Cnet, all three of Samsung, Motorola and LG will be unveiling smartwatches at the event in a demonstration of Android Wear's capabilities.  It has been known for a while that the Moto 360 would launch around this time and LG has had some recent leaks showing their own G-Watch, but this is the first we've heard of Samsung having another device in store. 

The report also mentions that Samsung has been experimenting with their own CPUs as well as Qualcomm's for the smartwatch, though it is unclear which version will be announced. Other details about the device were also unavailable, though it could end up being the event's big developer giveaway just like the Tab 10.1 back in 2011 and we'll have to wait a tiny bit to find out.
