In March 2014, we witnessed the debut of Android Wear, Google’s new software platform for smartwatches and other wearables. The first Android Wear smartwatches were released a few months later and now there are plenty of devices to choose from. Now LG introduced a new smartwatch and it’s the first of its kind to come with 4G LTE support.
LG’s latest Android Wear smartwatch is called Watch Urbane 2nd Edition. Just like the original Watch Urbane it comes with a round design that is a reminiscent of a traditional watch. However, the new timepiece arrives with upgraded hardware underneath that stainless steel body. It’s also worth adding that the strap is made of a durable hypoallergenic TPSiV elastomer band, but it’s also available with a leather strap.
The watch sports a 1.38-inch Full Circle P-OLED screen with 348 ppi pixel density and a resolution of 480 x 480, the highest ever on a smartwatch. It measures 44.5 mm in diameter, it has a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, and a pretty big 570 mAh battery. 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of storage are also on the specs list.
LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition comes with Power Saving Mode feature which should be capable of boosting your battery life to about 2 days. On the right side of the watch there are three buttons that can be used to access shortcuts such as the app list, LG Health, or contacts. You can also adjust the Ambient mode by pressing the crown button. You will also be able to choose from 16 native watch faces, aside the ones you can download from Play Store.
The South Korean company announced that the new LG Watch Urbane 2 will be initially available in their home country and the US in four color variants: Signature Brown, Luxe White, Opal Blue, and Space Black. It will also be up for grabs in Europe, the Middle Easy, Asia, and CIS. Unfortunately, there is no information on the pricing of the new Android Wear watch.
