LG may be struggling on their smartwatch line-up, but their newest model might help turn the tides.
LG had previously launch a series of smarthwatches, from the first G Watch to its successor the G Watch R and the recent Watch Urbane that was launch last spring, now they are releasing another smartwatch. The LG Watch Urbane 2 or second edition will feature a first for the Android Wear; the smartwatch is equipped with an LTE. This time, instead of using LG?s very own WebOS software to run its smarthwatch, they will be using the Android Wear for the Urbane 2.
Since the Urbane 2 is equipped with an LTE, this means the smartwatch needs to have its own SIM card, and that means it will have its own phone number, LG is already working with carriers for the smartwatch. Another big improvement is the battery, where it packs a 570mAh capacity, a biggest so far in smartwatches. However with a large battery capacity also means a larger sized smartwatch, as the Watch Urbane 2 has a thickness of 14mm, the battery cap can be removed where you can insert the SIM. The watch Urbane 2 will have four separate bands that you can customize the look of the smartwatch, which includes black, white, coral and brown leather, the smartwatch?s body will only have a silver casing. It will also have three hardware buttons on the side, these include the Home screen, quick launch for the LG Health and the call button.
