LG Watch W7 hybrid Wear OS smartwatch to launch with the LG V40

LG's holding an event on October 3 in New York City to unveil its V40 flagship smartphone. According to a new report, it would appear that it isn't the only new gadget that'll be announced that day.

Back in late April, Android Headlines claimed that LG was working on a new smartwatch called the "LG Watch Timepiece." The Timepiece reportedly had a hybrid design that combined Wear OS smarts with a mechanical clock so that users could get the best of both worlds.

Other key specs included a 1.2-inch 360 x 360 LCD circular display, IP68 dust/water resistance, 240 mAh battery, and physical watch hands with "highly precise quartz movement."

Nothing ever came of the Timepiece, but now according to Evan Blass, the wearable will be launched alongside the V40 and go by the name of "LG Watch W7."


Key details like the processing package and price as still up in the air, but assuming we're introduced to the W7 next week, we won't have to wait too much longer to learn all of the nitty-gritty.
