The first Android Wear 2.0 Smartwatches from LG have arrived!
Meet the LG Watch Sport and Style
LG has announced its long-rumored Watch Style and Watch Sport smartwatches in collaboration with Google. Both devices will be the first smartwatches to come with Android Wear 2.0 pre-installed, and they are launching in the US on February 10.
The LG Watch Style and LG Watch Sport both feature circular P-OLED displays, 4GB of storage, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivities, 1.1GHz Snapdragon Wear 2100, wireless charging and dust and water resistance.
The LG Watch Style is the smaller and cheaper of the two. Armed with a 1.2-inch 360×360 resolution circular P-OLED display, ambient light sensor, and Bluetooth/Wi-Fi connectivity, the Watch Style is a more basic smartwatch for the less demanding user. It runs on the Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset with 512MB RAM and 4GB storage. The 240mAh battery is charged wirelessly. The Watch Style has a stainless steel body with leather straps and IP67 water-resistance rating.
The Watch Style is priced at $249 for titanium and silver, and $279 for the rose gold.
Then there’s the Watch Sport, which comes with all the bells and whistles. It has a 1.38-inch 480×480 resolution P-OLED display, Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset, 768MB RAM, 4GB storage, and 430mAh battery. It comes fully loaded with all sorts of sensors and connectivity options, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, LTE, GPS, NFC, heart rate monitor, barometer, and ambient light sensor. The Watch Sport also has IP68 water-resistance rating.
The Watch Sport is priced at $349 in titanium and Google Store-exclusive dark blue.
Android Wear 2.0 is also official as of today, but it’s only available on these two watches for now. Google says that it will come as an update to a host of existing Android Wear watches this year, but has not said exactly when it will be available for them.
