LG presented on Wednesday (8), in partnership with Google, new smart watches with Android Wear. There are two models: the Watch Sport, with support for NFC payments and additional sensors for those who exercise; And the Watch Style, with smaller screen and more affordable price.
The hardware does not escape the standard of Android Wear smartwatches: both have 1.1 GHz Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, 4 GB storage for music and applications, P-OLED screen and protection against water and dust. What’s new is that they will be the first (and only now) to run Android Wear 2.0, which has brought good refinements to the current version .
For $ 349, Watch Sport is the most complete, with barometer, GPS and heart rate reader to monitor your workouts without having to carry the smartphone. The 1.38 inch screen has a resolution of 480 × 480 pixels and a battery of 430 mAh is enough for only one day of use (fuen!). It supports NFC for Android Pay and 4G connection (yes, there is an entry for Nano-SIM chips).
According to philosophynearby, the vintage style watch is a less expensive option: for $ 249, the screen decreases to 1.2 inches (360 × 360 pixels), RAM is cut from 768 MB to 512 MB and there is no GPS, NFC or heart rate reader . Perhaps the biggest drop is on the battery, with only 240 mAh capacity, which Engadget described as “terrible,” only holding 9 or 12 hours away from the charger.
A nice feature is that LG’s new smartwatches have a knob on the side, which works much like the crowns of Apple Watch and Gear S3. You can navigate through notifications and system items just by turning the knob without having to slide your finger on the screen at all times (which also prevents fingerprints from interfering with visibility).
Both watches will begin to be sold in the Google Store from Friday (10) in the United States. LG has not informed when they will be released in other countries.
