SEOUL – LG Electronics (LG) will unveil its first all-metal luxury Android Wear device, LG Watch Urbane, at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 in Barcelona.
The LG Watch Urbane follows closely in the footsteps of the LG Watch R, the first smartwatch with a full circular Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display, which LG launched in October 2014. The smartwatch is more formal with a thinner profile making it perfect for either men or women.
Its stainless steel body is available in polished silver and gold finish and sports a natural leather strap which can be replaced with any other 22mm wide band as per requirement.
The LG Watch Urbane features an intuitive touch-based user interface that is compatible with smartphones running Android 4.3 and above.
Akin to its predecessor, LG Watch R, the Watch Urbane includes a photoplethysmography (PPG) sensor that can measure a wearer’s heart rate and average pulse during exercise. The Always-On ambient mode shows the time on the display at all times in dimmed mode, saving battery life.
Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company said, “LG Watch Urbane is an important part of our strategy to develop wearable devices that are worn and viewed as everyday accessories, not electronic gadgets.”
The LG Watch Urbane features 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, runs on Android, has a display of 1.3-inch and includes a 410mAh battery.
The dust and water resistant smart device has a memory of 4GB, 512 MB of RAM and comes in Gold and Silver colours.
