LG Watch Urbane Coming to Google Store



LG recently announced that their premium Watch Urbane Android Wear offering will go on sale in South Korea this week. This evening LG sent out a press release confirming that several other countries will be able to buy the watch later this month on the Google Store. The list of countries that will be able to purchase the watch from Google includes Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. Unfortunately LG did not give any pricing details for any of these markets, but considering it is being billed as a premium watch, expect it to cost more than the G Watch R, which is priced at $300.


The Watch Urbane is available in rose gold and silver options and the specs include a 1.3-inch P-OLED display, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU, 512MB LPDDR2 RAM, 4GB internal storage and 410mAh battery. The watch is also IP67 certified dust and water resistant. On the software side, the Watch Urbane will be running the latest version of Android Wear. Yesterday we brought you some exciting new features coming to Android Wear’s latest update, including the ability to use your watch on WiFi without your phone. Overall this watch looks like a solid offering, but pricing will be a big determining factor in my decision to pick one up. Anyone else interested in LG’s latest Android Wear watch?

"I am currently a researcher and Adjunct Professor at Arizona State University and Grand Canyon University. I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
