The LG Watch Urbane is LG’s latest entry into the Smartwatch category. The Watch Urbane was announced back in February just ahead of the MWC held in Barcelona. The LG Watch Urbane is also LG’s first Smartwatch to feature the “Moto 360″ inspired circular design.
The LG Watch Urbane was announced yesterday in India at a special LG event in Delhi along with the world’s first and India’s largest 105” 5K TV and also the LG G Flex 2.
The LG Watch Urbane, similar to other Smartwatch offerings from LG, runs on the Android Wear operating system and LG is rather marketing the Watch Urbane as a “Luxury Timepiece” rather than a “Bang for your Buck” device like the Moto 360.
The LG Watch Urbane has a stainless steel body with a leather strap and features a 1.3 inch P-OLED display (Plastic OLED) which is circular in shape and has a resolution of 320×320 pixels [245 PPI] and is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 400 processor and 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage. The battery fitted in the Watch Urbane is of 410 mAh. Other features include a heartbeat tracking sensor and other regular array of sensors such as a gyroscope, accelerometer, compass and a barometer. Apart from these, the LG Watch Urbane is also water and dust resistant with its IP67 rating.
There is also an LTE enable variant of the LG Watch Urbane that was announced alongside the regular model in India. The LTE enabled Watch Urbane also has a SIM card slot and features upgraded hardware specifications such as 1 GB of RAM.
LG officials hinted at the availability of both the regular and the LTE enabled LG Watch Urbane in local and online retail stores by the end of April 2015 and the pricing is expected to begin from at Rs. 30,000 for the non-LTE model.
