The South Korean tech giant seems to take the smartwatch competition even further this time at the MWC 2015 expo. The company has recently announced an all-metal luxurious Android Wear smartwatch called as the LG Watch Urbane. This watch carries its own style statement and is designed for the sophisticated urban user. The LG Watch urbane has a full metal body and a changeable leather strap which can be swapped with other 22mm wide bands. The LG Watch Urbane will be available in two variants of polished Gold and silver finish.
Juno Cho, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said, “The LG Watch Urbane’s classic design and smart features make it the perfect smartwatch to complement our G Watch and G Watch R, which were designed as more casual and active devices”.
Looking to its specs, the LG Watch Urbane has a 1.3 inch circular P-OLED display with 320×320 resolution and 245 ppi density. This is similar to the LG G Watch R but comes with even narrow bezels and thinner profile so as to be used by both men and women. The smart wearable has got a photoplethysmography (PPG) sensor to measure the heart-rate and pulse during exercise. It too has the ‘always-on’ ambient mode that shows time continuously in dim mode and saves a large battery life. The watch has got a touch-based UI compatible with Android 4.3 and above running smartphones. The processor chip is quad-core Snapdragon 400 with 512MB of LPDDR2 RAM, 4GB internal storage and 410mAh of battery life. It is also IP67 certified making it dust and water proof. The dimensions are 45.5 x 52.2 x 10.9mm.
The pricing will be announced later during the availability in local markets. Take a look at the official images below.
