As we reported earlier, Google is planning to hold a special event for the unveiling of Android Wear 2.0 along with two LG smartwatches known as LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style. Though multiple reports have already hinted about some key specs of the upcoming smartwatches, but now we also have our hands on the possible image renders of these smartwatches.
As posted by TechnoBuffalo, the alleged images show two devices even though the image is of low resolution. On the left, you will find the Watch Sport, while on the right there is Watch Style. The Watch Sport is said to be the high-end model and will sport a 1.38-inch OLED display with 480 x 480 pixel resolution. One can see a digital crown on the right of the watch flanked between two buttons, with a rubber strap and metallic body.The device will be backed by 768MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and will come equipped with a 430mAh battery. The smartwatch will sport a heart-rate sensor.
On the other hand, the LG Watch Style(on right) will be more of a budget-centric device which will come with a 1.2-inch OLED display and a screen resolution of 360 x 360 pixels. The smartwatch is seen with a single digital crown and comes with a leather band which is reported to be swappable. The smartwatch will be backed by a 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal memory, and a 240mAh battery.
Both the smartwatches will come with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity options, while the Sport model will come equipped with cellular connectivity (3G and LTE) as well, along with GPS and NFC (Near Field Communication). The smartwatches are said to be Android and iOS compatible.
Other than this, it is reported that both the smartwatches will come with the deep integration of Google Assistant. LG Watch Sport and Watch Style will be water and dust resistant, with the former sporting an IP68 certification, while the latter will ship with IP67 certification.
Talking about the Android Wear 2.0, the new smartwatch OS will bring in a bunch of new features including on-device Play Store that will allow users to download watch-specific apps, support for Android Pay, support for Google’s AI Voice Assistant, revamped notification centre and more. Moreover, not all current Android Wear smartwatches will be updated but most of the recent ones like Moto 360 Gen 2, LG Watch Urbane and 2nd Edition LTE, ASUS ZenWatch 2, ASUS ZenWatch 3, Huawei Watch, Fossil Q Wander etc. will be updated to Android Wear 2.0 platform.
