LG has been a leader in the Android Wear space for a while now, and their latest effort re-establishes that dominance in a big way. The Watch Urbane 2nd Edition looks nice, offers features no other Wear watch is offering, and includes some hardware under the hood that will make a lot of people look at their existing watch and consider upgrading.
Here's what's going on inside this tiny wrist computer.
|Size||44.5mm x 14.2mm|
|Color||Space Black, Opan Blue, Lexe White, Signature Brown|
|Display||480 x 480 resolution 1.38-inch P-Oled (348ppi)|
|CPU||1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400|
|Sensors||Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Heartrate, Compass, Barometer, PPG, GPS|
|Network||Wifi, 3G, LTE, Bluetooth 4.1|
One spec you'll find absent from this list is the strap size, and that's because it's not replaceable in this generation of Watch Urbane models. LG has baked the antennae needed to make this watch do some of the mobile radio things into the strap, so removing it would obviously cause problems. As long as you are happy with the strap included with the color options LG has made available, this is shaping up to be an impressive addition to the Android Wear lineup.
