LG introduces LG Watch Urbane, an all-metal unisex luxury timepiece powered by Google Android Wear platform.
With today’s announcement, LG Electronics adds another smartwatch to its portfolio. The LG Watch Urbane will be shown off during first week of March, at the worlds largest mobile convention – Mobile World Congress 2015, in Barcelona.
LG Watch Urbane follows in the footsteps of the LG Watch R, the first smartwatch with a full circular Plastic OLED display, which LG launched back in October, last year. LG Watch R was designed bearing the active user in mind, while LG Watch Urbane is thinner and with a more formal profile, making it a perfect fit for both men and women.
“The LG Watch Urbane’s classic design and smart features make it the perfect smartwatch to complement our G Watch and G Watch R, which were designed as more casual and active devices,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “LG Watch Urbane is an important part of our strategy to develop wearable devices that are worn and viewed as everyday accessories, not electronic gadgets.”
Carrying the same 1.3-inch P-OLED display, but in a stainless steel body (gold or silver color) with narrower bezel and with a nicely stitched natural leather strap this time, the LG Watch Urbane has a more classy look and feel, when compared to G Watch R.
