Fans of smart watches that look like traditional watches have a new option now with the introduction of the LG Urbane smart watch. At first glance, you’ll find it hard to believe this is not a mechanical or quartz timepiece from a Japanese or even Swiss watchmaker.
But looks can be deceiving, under the “hood” of the LG Urbane watch you’ll find electronic goodies instead of mechanical gears and springs. At the heart of the watch is a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor running the Android Wear operating system.
The dial is covered with 1.3” 320×200, 245 PPI P-OLED display, which should run many of the apps already available at the Android App store. The watch comes with 4 GB eMMC/512 MB LPDDR2 memory and is equipped with a 410 mAh battery, the Korean electronics maker didn’t provide information on expected run time per charge.
From an aesthetic point of view, the LG Urbane smart watch has a pretty attractive design, the dial shown here features three sub-dials for day, month, and battery life (?). I’m sure the dial design can be changed to look different with pre-selected designs. The case measures 45.5 x 52.2 x 10.9 mm and comes in gold or silver finishes with brown or black leather straps.
No word yet on price or when the LG Urbane smart watches will be available for purchase. Via: LG
