LG has been showing off a number of premium products lately. Before the leather-backed LG G4, there’s the LG Watch Urbane that has got some of the geeks drooling over because of its sophisticated look. The classy-looking smartwatch was listed on Google Store a couple of days ago and now we have news that it’s finally available in the United States from Verizon and AT&T.
A big leap from the previous LG G Watch and the LG G Watch R models, the LG Watch Urbane is now also available in the United States from Verizon and AT&T. The mobile carriers have finally listed the smartwatch for $349. The first to be powered by the latest Android Wear version, the LG smartwatch is stylish and impresses with its full-circle Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display, modern design, and new features like WiFi support, cloud access, smart notifications, and built-in heart rate monitor.
The LG Watch Urbane also allows hand gestures, phone free usage, and drawing of emojis to send as an SMS reply. You can also search the web using just your voice or track fitness level if you’re really determined to get fit.
LG boasts of the LG Watch Urbane because of its style and function. LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company CEO and President Juno Cho said that this watch is a “perfect example that Android Wear watches can be functional and beautiful, making it a useful accessory that complements any wardrobe”. Cho further added, “No one would mistake LG Watch Urbane for a computer on your wrist”. He is right because this thing is a beauty.
Let’s take a look at some of the specs of the LG Watch Urbane:
• 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset
• 1.3-inch P-OLED Display screen
• 320 x 320 pixel resolution, 245ppi
• 4GB built-in memory
• 512MB LPDDR2 RAM
• 410mAh battery
The dust- and water-resistant LG Watch Urbane has got some nifty sensors too: 9-Axis sensor, heart rate sensor, barometer, accelerometer, and gyroscope. You can choose between the silver or rose gold version of the smartwatch. You can easily personalize it by changing the strap with any 22mm band.
