LG is planning to launch two new Android Wear Watches this year, and it is expected that both the watches will be unveiled on Feb 8th which is tomorrow(US) in theory. While we wait for the watches to make a debut in their full glory, we already have our first look at both the watches and thanks to Even Blass. Earlier, he tweeted out the image of LG Watch Style, and now we have the first rendered images of the LG Watch Sport which the company will be launching alongside the LG Watch Style.
Taking a look at the watches, we can see that it sports a rugged look which are very different from the LG Watch Style which we saw earlier. Rumor has it that the LG Watch Sport will be more powerful as well in terms of the performance when compared to the LG Watch Style. As seen from the image, the LG Watch Sports (LG-W280A) features three buttons in total on the side, out of which one in the middle is said to be a rotating crown like the one seen on the Apple Watch.

Talking about the internal specs of the LG Watch Sport, one of the main addition is the NFC which will enable the watch to carry out Android Pay payments effortlessly. The watch is also set to feature GPS, LTE and Google Assistant, which is something new as we haven’t seen Google Assistant running natively anywhere other than Pixel smartphones. On the front, the LG Watch Sport is expected to sport a 1.38-inch screen with 480×480 resolution along with 768MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage.
The LG Watch Sport will have a comparatively better battery than the LG Watch Style coming in with a capacity of 430 mAh and since it has the Sport tag, it will come with a IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. While we wait for the Android Wear 2.0 which is due to be announced today, these two watches are expected to be the first ones to be powered by Android Wear 2.0 out of the box. With that said, stay tuned to PhoneRadar for detailed info the watches as well as Android Wear 2.0.
