LG has given us a look at what we can expect at MWC 2015 next month: a fashion-centric luxury smartwatch. Known as the Watch Urbane, LG’s upcoming smartwatch comes with an all-metal body, with either a gold or silver finish, as well as a natural leather strap and much of the same hardware that LG’s current smartwatch offerings have. Rather than being a successor to these current offerings, LG says that the Watch Urbane will “compliment” them.
LG is set to unveil the Watch Urbane, its latest Android Wear smartwatch that features a round stainless steel body and full circular Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display at this year’s Mobile World Congress next month. Aimed at fashion-conscious gadget aficionados, the Watch Urbane looks more like a traditional timepiece and features a narrower bezel than the sporty G Watch R, and comes in polished silver and gold finishes. It also has a natural leather strap that can be replaced with any 22mm wide band to suit the wearer’s style. Under the hood, it’s quite similar to the Watch R. It runs Android Wear on its 1.3-inch display with a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 4GB memory and 512MB RAM, and a 410mAh battery that allows for just about two days of use on a single charge on the previous model. It also features a photoplethysmography (PPG) sensor to measure heart rate and average pulse during workouts.
