You know, it has been more than a month since 2015 started, and we haven’t seen any wearable yet!!! I mean, remember last year? Even know most of the products are crap, there were tons of them. This year, we got squat. Well, LG is here to save the day, as it has just announced their newest Android Wear smartwatch, set to be unveiled at MWC 2015 this year: The Watch Urbane.
States that the watch “is the perfect device for wearers looking to add both style and high-tech flare to their daily life,” it looks like LG has done quite a job. With a whole metal-stainless steel construction, the watches look quite similar to what I have on my wrist right now, and it’s rather stylish. LG also designed it to be lighter and thinner, makes it “perfect for either men and women.” The wrist band is also replaceable with any 22mm wide band, meaning that you can, literally, take it out to any watch store and switch the band.
On the surface, the wearable features a 1.3-inch full circle P-OLED display that we saw on the G Watch R, with the resolution of 320×320 (245ppi). However, this new display has thinner bezels, and make the whole watch face look exceptionally thin. Of course, nowhere near the Moto 360, but the trade off is the flat-tire effect. Here is the full spec sheet:
