With the launch of Android Wear 2.0 early next month, Google is planning to launch first batch of smartwatches — in partnership with LG — that will run the updated version of its wearable operating system.
The LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style, among which the former holds the flagship index, will debut on February 9 in the US, according to VentureBeat, with international rollout through February and March.
Both of LG-made smartwatches feature circular, plastic OLED displays, while the under-the-hood materials make the difference in performance as well as pricing. Plus, Google Assistant will also come bundled with the LG Watch Sport and Style, featuring water and dust resistant bodies.
On the specs front, the LG Watch Sport has a 1.38-inch screen, 768MB of RAM, 430mAh battery, while the Style does with pretty good with a 1.2-inch screen, 512MB of RAM, 240mAh battery. The Sport variant also offers cellular connectivity, as well as GPS and NFC.
The LG Watch Sport and Watch Style both clone Apple Watch’s key feature, the digital crown. The digital crown on these Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches function similar to what we have seen on the Apple Watch; it will be used for navigation.
The 14.2-mm thick Watch Sport will be available in titanium and dark blue, while the 10.8-mm thick Watch Style will come in titanium, silver and rose gold.
Official details are yet to be conformed.
