Now that the dust has more or less settled over the release of the Apple Watch, are there different kinds of smart timepieces in the market which will be able to provide a decent fight? Probably, especially when you take into consideration that nobody is perfect, and in the case of corporations, that rule applies, too. South Korea’s LG has just announced that the LG Watch Urbane will be made available in its home country first, before it makes its way over to various key markets over in North America, Europe and Asia in the coming weeks.
Basically, before this month is over, if you happen to live in one of the following countries – Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States, you will be able to pick up an LG Watch Urbane of your own via the Google Store, now how about that?
We do know that there is the LG Watch Urbane as well as the LG Watch Urbane LTE, so it really depends on which particular one you would prefer to rock to. Let us refresh our memories of the LG Watch Urbane – it will boast of a modern design that sports a full-circle Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display which measures 1.3” in diameter, and comes with a less prominent and lower profile bezel. The overall dimensions are also smaller and thinner, and those do not happen to reduce the size of the display or the battery.
Underneath the hood lies a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, and you will also find Android Wear running on it as well. As for the aforementioned 1.3” P-OLED display, it sports a resolution count of 320 x 320 pixels at 245ppi pixel density, while having 4GB of internal memory and 512MB RAM, accompanied by a 410mAh battery to keep it going. Integrated sensors include a 9-axis (Gyro/ Accelerometer / Compass) with barometer and PPG (Heart Rate Sensor) thrown into the mix to boot. It is dust and water resistant according to IP67 standards, and will arrive in either silver or gold shades.
