Just when we thought that LG has revealed its plans for this year’s Wearable with announcement of LG Urbane Watch. But now it looks like the company has one more watch to announce, and it apparently it is named as a variant of the original LG G Watch. Although, the new smartwatch is not powered by Android Wear operating system. Yes, you read that right; company is not using the Google wearable OS on its G Watch Urbane.
The G Watch Urbane packs power packed features, as it supports LTE connectivity. It is in straight competition with Samsung’s Gear S, which is also supported SIM card, but apparently doesn’t support 4G yet. The South Korean manufacturer has announced this smartwatch in the home country for now. According to the company’s official site, the device comes with a proprietary operating system, similar to the what Samsung did with Tizen on Gear S.
If we go back a couple of weeks, around the CES time of this year, LG showcased a watch in partnership with Audi, which is powered by WebOS, and it is possibility that this is the same OS that we would see the device. The notable specs sheet of the device includes a Snapdragon 400 chipset, 1.3-inch OLED display with 320 x 320 pixel resolution, 1GB RAM and 4GB internal storage.
The device is said to come with IP67 certification, which will make this a water and dust resistant watch. With the voice calling capability, there is a microphone and speaker placed in the watch. For connectivity features, other than 4G LTE, the device has support of Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy.
It includes sensors like 9-axis (gyro/acceleration/compass), barometric pressure sensor, GPS, as well as hear rate monitor. All this is powered by a 700mAh battery, and it is said to come in only one color, Silver. For now there are no pricing details and availability shared by the company yet, and we hope that the company showcases this watch at the MWC event next week.
