LG unveiled two new Android Wear 2.0-powered smartwatches earlier this week to no one’s surprise. The LG Watch Style and LG Watch Sport are the first smartwatches to be powered by the latest version of Google’s wearable device platform.
It has just been a few days since these devices were launched and they are already available for purchase from several retailers.
It has been a while since one of Google’s partners released a new Android Wear smartwatch. It is here now. Google worked with LG on these devices so it is pretty obvious that it’s all about pushing Google’s software, since there is not much pushing of the envelope on design or functionality.
The LG Watch Style is for users who are looking for the entry-level model. It’s the cheapest of the two at $249 but also provides less functionality as it lacks LTE, NFC, and more. The LG Watch Style comes in Silver and Titanium colors for $249 while the Rose Gold is being sold for $279. It’s now available now via the Google Store if you are interested.
The LG Watch Sport is more expensive but also offers more functionality for the money. It has support for GPS, NFC, and LTE. It’s available in Dark Blue and Titanium from the Google Store for $349. It can also be purchased via Verizon and AT&T but both of these carriers are only offering it in Titanium color.
