LG Watch Urbane Second Edition – First Cellular Android Wear Smartwatch Announced



LG along with the introduction of the V10 smartphone has announced the first Android Wear smartwatch with network connectivity. The device offers options to connect with 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. While the company had their first Cellular enabled smartwatch in the form of the first generation LG Urbane, which was announced in February this year, but that was powered by a proprietary OS.

The second edition of LG Watch Urbane is the first Cellular Android Wear smartwatch. Designed for users who don’t like to carry their smartphones all the time, this concept of taking/making calls on from your wrists sounds convenient but not practical.

The new Android Wear comes with a resolution of 480 x 480, which is one of the highest among the smartwatches. Sporting a 1.38-inch full circle P-OLED display the watch delivers 348 PPI pixel density. The smart watch measures 44.5mm wide, and 14.2mm thick and houses specifications like an industry standard Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset, 768MB RAM and 4GB of RAM.

The Urbane is IP67 rated that’ll make the smartwatch dustproof and would be water resistant up to 1m. Since, the body is stainless steel the rating was much needed. All this is powered by a 570mAh battery, which seemed to be quite larger than any other Android Wear products in the market right now.

The Watch packs nice set of software features such as shortcuts to contacts, LG Health, apps list. There is an ambient mode on wearable that can be enabled and disabled with a simple press of a crown button. It would be sporting an interesting set of sensors such as Accelerometer, Gyro, Compass, Barometer, and PPG.

The LG Watch Urbane Second Edition is going to available in the United States and Korea first, which would be followed Europe, CIS, Asia and the Middle East. The price and availability date would be announced later. It would be available in four color variants, Space BlacK, Opal Blue, Luxe White and Signature Brown.

LG Watch Urbane - Heart Rate

Currently, only Samsung Gear S2 is one of the popular smartwatches that offers SIM connectivity on their smartwatches. LG would have an advantage in introducing the first ever Android Wear product with high-end network connectivity. Let’s wait for the pricing and then we will know if the product would be worth or not. Are you sold on the new LG Urbane Watch?
