After quite a few rumors made the rounds online, it finally happened! The LG Watch Style and Watch Sport, the South Korean manufacturer’s latest smartwatches (and the first ones to run Android Wear 2.0, as a side note), were finally made official!
Starting with February 10, they will be available in the United States, while other territories, like Canada, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, UAE, and the UK will follow in the next weeks. But let’s see what that special about them, shall we?
First of all, we have the LG Watch Style, which, with a price tag of $249, is the cheaper variant. For this money, you’re getting a 1.2″ P-OLED display, with a resolution of 360 x 360 pixels, as well as a Snapdragon Wear 2100 chip under the hood, alongside 512 MB of RAM and 4 gigs of internal storage. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity aren’t missing either!
It’s a pretty basic model, with a 240 mAh battery, wireless charging and IP67 rating, coming with a stainless steel body and leather straps, in two different finishes, Titanium Silver and Rose Gold. However, the latter is raising the price tag a bit, at $279.
As for the LG Watch Sport, it’s definitely the most interesting option. The smartwatch comes with a 1.38″ P-OLED display, with a resolution of 480 x 480 pixels, and the same Snapdragon Wear 2100 under the hood. Still, the memory was increased to 768 MB, while the storage capacity remained unchanged, 4 GB. The battery is also bigger, having a capacity of 430 mAh.
The spec sheet is completed by a load of sensors and connectivity options, like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, LTE, GPS, NFC, a heart rate monitor, barometer, and an ambient light sensor. And this one is IP68 certified, resulting an increased water and dust resistance.
You can get it for $349 in Titanium, or exclusively from the Google Store, in Dark Blue.
