Google rumored to release two LG-manufactured Android Wear devices

There has been an intense competition among smartwatch makers in recent years. Apple still dominates the market thanks to its impressive sales of Apple Watch, while Android Wear-based smartwatches ranks the second. We are expecting to see more smartwatches this year from big names such as Samsung, Sony, LG and Tag Heuer with its luxury Connected series of smartwatches. With Android Wear 2.0 launch scheduled in early February, we are pretty sure that this year’s smartwatches will run Google’s latest version of wearable operating system.


According to sources, Google would release two LG-manufactured smartwatches this year called LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style running Android Wear 2.0. The LG Watch Sport is believed to sport a 1.38 inch display with resolution of 480 x 480 OLED display. Other specs include 768 MB of RAM, a 430mAh battery and an IP68 rating. Besides, the new smartwatch will also come with 3G, LTE connectivity, GPS as well as NFC support for mobile payment with Android Pay.

As for LG Watch Style, the new smartwatch is said to come with a 1.2 inch 360 x 360 OLED display, 512MB of RAM, 24 mAh battery and IP67 rating. According to sources, both LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style will feature Google Assistant, 4GB of internal storage, Wi-Fi, and a Digital Crown button, allowing you to easily navigate around Android Wear-based user interface.

LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style are rumored to be unveiled on February 9 this year. Aside from Google, HTC has been rumored to release a new Under Armour-branded watch called Halfbeak running Android Wear 2.0 on board. Besides, Sony will release the second generation PES Watch this year. Previously, PES watches made their debut at IFA last year with two models including a premium option and a slightly cheaper option.
