Along w/ the Android Wear 2.0 update, Google & LG unveiled their worst kept secret: the LG Watch Style & Watch Sport smartwatches. One has a more casual look while the other has a more high-end look. These are set to be the flagship wearables of Android Wear 2.0. Let’s dive into what they can do.
Let’s start w/ the high-end one. The Watch Sport offers all of the goodies like GPS, LTE via AT&T or Verizon, a heart-rate sensor, and NFC for Android Pay. The Power button rotates while the other 2 are customizable to do whatever you need them to do. It offers the same stiff rubber band from the Watch Urbane LTE BTW. All of this sits on a 1.35inch circular POLED display, Snapdragon Wear CPU, 430 mAh battery, 4GB of storage, and 768MB of RAM.
While the Watch Style offers a more everyday look w/ a removable band and lighter bezel. However, it removes the options for GPS, NFC, heart rate, & LTE though. But it retains the rotating Power button for additional navigation. This sits on a 1.20inch circular POLED display, Snapdragon Wear CPU, 240 mAh battery, 4GB of storage, and 512MB of RAM.
Both watches will be available on Friday, February 10th. The Watch Sport will sell for $349 at the Google Store and pricing will differ via carrier as you can also grab it from AT&T or Verizon as well. The Watch Style will be sold at Best Buy & the Google Store for $249.
So who’s looking to pick one of these up? Or are you gonna just for AW 2.0 to arrive on your current smartwatch?
