LG, Google announces LG Watch Style and Watch Sport with Android Wear 2.0


Two of the biggest brands in the world paired up to create great smartwatches.

Google and LG wanted to make a statement for Android Wear 2.0 so they decided to spice things up by releasing it with two smartwatches, the LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style.

The two smartwatches have different focus, LG Watch Sport is perfect for those with an active lifestyle. It has a built-in gyroscope, GPS sensors, accelerometer, and barometer that will keep on tracking the user’s workout and destinations. It also has NFC, 3G, and 4G LTE connectivity, allowing Android pay. It also has a larger RAM than Style, 768MB and it’s powered by a 430mAh battery. It has a larger and higher resolution of 1.38-inch 480×480 display compared to that of Style. It also comes in two colors: titanium and dark blue.

For LG Watch Style, making a fashion statement is its target. It comes in a thinner case with three colors: titanium, rose gold and silver. These colorful watches are partnered with genuine leather straps. Aside from these, LG Watch Style does not support some of the features and specs that LG Watch Sport has. But that’s already expected considering that it’s the more affordable variant among the two.

Though of different purpose, both watches have circular P-OLED displays, 4GB of storage, WiFi, Bluetooth, and wireless charging support, 1.1GHz Snapdragon Wear 2100, and are dust-proof and waterproof. The two also has Google Assistant support.

Aside from those mentioned above, these two smartwatches are currently the only ones with the Android Wear 2.0. Though Google announced the OS update for other existing Android Wear watches, there has been no exact date for its release this year, the same goes for the prices of the smartwatches.
