LG did not only recently unveil their latest V10 phone, but they’ve also made the LG Urbane 2nd Edition known to the public. Like the 1st edition, it still retains its circular display but this can be called a worthy update. It arrives to the market as it is powered by Android technology and is now combined with wireless cellular connectivity. This is an upgrade that even the world famous Apple Watch could not do. LG already has a smartwatch with an LTE connection called the Watch Urbane LTE. This smart timepiece, along with their newly unveiled one, will be able to let users leave their smartphones at home. The watch can use the cellular connection for calls and data.
Leave Your Phone at Home When You Have the LG Urbane 2nd Edition
Since the LG Urbane 2nd Edition will not limited to a Wi-Fi range, there should be more apps that are reliant to an Internet connection to be used even when no Wi-Fi connection is available in the immediate vicinity.
This updated LG Urbane smartwatch packs a 1.38-inch P-OLED display with a resolution of 480 x 480 pixels. It sports a 570mAH battery which is not so much but can last a day on a full charge and with the help of a Power Saving Mode. There are three buttons located on the watch. These are to provide the user for easy access to certain settings. The buttons will let the user access contact, the LG Health, and the apps list. The crown button will enable Ambient mode. A simple press will activate the said mode.
In addition to the buttons, the smartwatch will include 16 pre-set watch faces, and an array of fitness-related features. The watch will have a heart-rate monitor, easy accessible exercise tips, and a stress level monitoring system. The device sports a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chip. It has Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi, LTE, and 3G connectivity. Also, the watch comes in an array of colors namely Space Black, Luxe White, Opal Blue, and Signature Brown.
With the ever expanding world of smartwatch technology, LG aims to keep up, and perhaps win over the competition with the LG Urbane 2nd Edition. The wearable technology sector is continuing to evolve and there are no signs of it stopping any time soon. Juno Cho, CEO and President of LG Electronics, stated that their various wearable devices will appeal to many consumers.
