LG Watch Urbane + Urbane LTE hands-on

LG Watch Urbane

LG introduces its best-looking wearable yet — including a unique LTE-capable version

In a relatively short amount of time, LG has rapidly developed its smartwatch portfolio. Starting with the original square reference device for Android Wear, the G Watch, and evolving later last year into a more traditional watch design with the G Watch R. Now, still less than a year on from its first smartwatch, LG brings us what's arguably the best-looking Android Wear smartwatch yet, the LG Watch Urbane. Broadly based upon the design of the G Watch R, the Urbane steps things up a notch with a polished metal chassis reminiscent of a traditional high-quality analog wearable — a step in the direction of jewelry, as opposed to technology.

But that's not the end of the story — the LG Watch Urbane comes in two flavors. In addition to the standard Android Wear version, LG has developed an LTE-capable version based upon its own "LG Wearable Platform" software, which is based upon webOS. It's the first smartwatch with 4G connectivity, looking a lot like the LG/Audi prototype smartwatch teased at CES.

We've had the chance to preview both versions of the Watch Urbane ahead of Mobile World Congress. Read on for our first impressions!

Acer Liquid Jade Z

Three new Android Lollipop models have joined Acer's lineup, boasting Magic Selfie software and stylish hardware.

This year at Mobile World Congress, Acer is unveiling a trio of smartphones aimed squarely at the same markets the company has been focused on for the last couple of years, which is to say budget focused European tiers of smartphones. The new Liquid Z220 and Liquid Z520 are breathing new life into the Liquid Z-series with the addition of quad-core processors and new textile patterns on the casing, while the new Liquid Jade Z focused on a higher tier through the use of a 64-bit processor and a new Zero Air Gap display. The one big thing all three phones have in common is lots of Acer-made software and new features that focus on selfies and media consumption.
