We have one more reason to wish for MWC 2015 to come quicker now, as LG just announced their next smartwatch which is going to be officially presented during the show. A more elegant, slimmer and tougher wearable, as it was presented by the press release, the LG Watch Urbane will be one of Apple Watch’s main competitors.
Now this is what we call a good looking wearable
Basically an upgraded version of the previous G Watch R, the LG Watch Urbane features narrower bezels, while the body is made from stainless steel, being available in two different finishes: silver and gold. Of course, the leather band is also there, making it one of the most elegant wearables of the moment.
According to Android Police, the smartwatch will feature the same circular 1.3″ P-OLED display, with a resolution of 320 by 320 pixels and a density of 245 ppi. Also, it will be powered by a Snapdragon 400 chip, aided by 512 MB of RAM, alongside 4 GB of internal storage.
Still rocking Android Wear
Its 0.42″ thick case will house a 410 mAh battery, which, surprisingly or not, won’t last more than three days in a single charge. Also, the operating system of choice was Google’s Android Wear. A bit surprising, if you ask us, as after LG revealed their WebOS-based smartwatch during CES 2015, we thought that they were totally going to ditch Android Wear.
The LG Watch Urbane also features a Compass, a Barometer and of course, the heart rate sensor. If can also take it for a swim, as it’s IP67 certified, but if you really want to do this, make sure you swap that leather strap with a rubber one.
As for the price and the availability date, the South Korean manufacturer didn’t gave any details, but we can wait for two more weeks.
Any first thoughts about the LG Watch Urbane? Would you buy this amazingly good looking smartwatch?
