We’ve got leaked images of the new LG Google watches powered by Android Wear 2.0


We have seen rumours of new watches made by LG in partnership with Google, which will be announced with Android Wear 2.0 on February 9. Today, we have beautiful images of these watches, the LG Watch Sport and the LG Watch Style.

TechnoBuffalo has managed to get their hands on what is apparently product images, albeit slightly blurry ones. The images show a black LG Watch Sport and a gold(ish) LG Watch Style. The LG Watch Sport will apparently come with a 1.38in 480 x 480 pixel display, 430mAh battery and 768MB of RAM. The smaller LG Watch Style has a 1.2in 360 x 360 pixel display and only 240mAh battery with 512MB of RAM.

Interestingly the images show different hardware button configurations between the two. The relevance of the extra buttons on the Sport in unknown but in only a few short weeks on February 9 we hope all will be revealed. We suspect it likely has something to do with the inclusion of LTE functions in the Sport variant, as the previous LG Watch with LTE had extra buttons as well.

Does this whet anyone’s appetite for a new watch? Personally I am leaning towards the HTC myself with these being a tad plain for my liking. What do you think?

please have replacement bands for the larger model that doesn’t require me to buy from google/lg. I have so many nice bands from old watches just waiting to be used.

I’m still loving my Samsung Gear S3. But now and again, I wish it had Android Wear, for the better app availability and watch face range.

The Gear S3 still looks better than anything I’ve seen recently. And WatchMaker is coming to Tizen very soon, so we’ll have those great faces available soon.

But if a fantastic looking Android Wear 2.0 device is released, I may be tempted to switch.

Do Aus telcos have the tech to allow SIM-less LTE?
