The rumors about the LG Watch Style and Watch Sport have been floating around on the internet for a while now. The rumors also said that this would be the first ever smartwatch with Android Wear 2.0. And that was correct because LG has released the Watch Style and Watch Sport with Android 2.0 out of the box.
The Style and Sport share some of their specs, such as a circular P-OLED display and a Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor. Both smartwatches can also be connected to WiFi and Bluetooth, as well as charged wirelessly. Both will also be able to handle some water and dust without getting damaged, but if you have a leather band for your watch it’s not recommended to swim with it.
The Watch Style comes with a 240mAh battery and 512MB of RAM under the 1.20-inch display. This smartwatch does not come with a GPS, which many smartwatches nowadays come with. It lacks NFC as well, which means that you won’t be able to use Android Pay. In terms of design, you can choose between rose gold, titanium, and silver for your watch. You will also get a leather strap, no matter what color you choose.
The bigger and thicker LG Watch Sport comes with a 1.38-inch screen and 768MB of RAM. The 430mAh battery is also bigger than its more stylish sibling. Just like many other fitness inspired smartwatches, the LG Watch Sport features an accelerometer, barometer, gyroscope and a GPS. All these different types of sensors will help you to track your run, workout or any other kind of exercise. This device also features LTE and NFC, which means that it’s compatible with Android Wear.
The Android Wear 2.0 update will also start to roll out to other smartwatches soon. The sales will start on February 10th, the Watch Sport will cost $349 and the Style will be available for $249. But the Rose Gold LG Watch Style will be slightly more expensive and cost $279. Do you want the Style or Sport?
