As expected, LG unveiled two new Android Wear 2.0-powered smartwatches earlier this week. The LG Watch Style and LG Watch Sport the first smartwatches to be powered by the latest iteration of Google’s wearable device platform. Even though it has just been a couple of days since these devices were launched, they are now available for purchase from several retailers.
It has been quite a while since one of Google’s partners released a new Android Wear smartwatch. Google has worked with LG on these devices and it’s evident that they’re meant to just push Google’s software as they’re not really pushing the envelope on design or functionality.
The LG Watch Style is for those who are looking for the entry-level model. It’s the cheapest of the two at $249 but also provides less functionality as it lacks LTE, NFC, etc. The LG Watch Style can be purchased in Silver and Titanium colors for $249 while the Rose Gold one is being sold for $279. It’s now available for purchase via the Google Store.
The LG Watch Sport is a bit more expensive but also offers greater functionality. For example, it has support for GPS, NFC, and LTE. It’s available in Dark Blue and Titanium colors from the Google Store for $349. The LG Watch Sport can also be purchased via Verizon and AT&T but both carriers are only offering it in Titanium color.
