Google’s new Android Wear 2.0 update will be released in February this year. Many current smartwatches will get the update, but Google and LG will probably also release new watches in time for Wear 2.0. LG’s upcoming watch is called the LG Watch style and it is speculated to come on February 9.
It was the well-known leaker Evan Blass who posted the images of the wearables on his Twitter account called @evleaks. He posted images of the Watch Style in two different colors, Rose Gold and Silver. You can also find a blurry photo of the LG Watch Sport on the web, so click here if you want to see it.
The LG Watch Sport has a circular 1.38-inch 480×480 OLED display, which is good for a smartwatch. Under the display, we can find 4GB of onboard storage, a 430mAh battery and 769MB of RAM. Because it’s a sporty watch, it’ll come with a heart rate sensor on the back and it is also rumored to be waterproof. The watch may come with 3G/LTE, which means that it will have an SIM-card slot.
The smaller and thinner Watch Style will have a 1.2-inch display, rather than 1.38-inchesQ, and be 10.8mm thick compared to its thicker sibling’s 14.2mm. This device will be water resistant, which means you shouldn’t swim with it for too long which you can do with the Sports version. The 210mAh battery and 512MB of RAM are also less powerful than the LG Watch Sport. However, both devices have 4GB of storage.
These watches will probably come with Android Wear 2.0 out of the box, but we can’t be sure. The price and availability of the LG Watch Style and Sport are still unknown. Which would you choose? Make sure to stay tuned to our website to read about this device when it has been released!
