The two LG smartwatches that recently arrived at FCC come with IP67 certification for protection from the elements and use a Qualcomm chipset, being expected to show up next month, shortly after Android Wear 2.0 gets unveiled.

Two smartwatches that apparently are LG Watch Urbane 3rd Edition variants have just surfaced at FCC. While nothing is confirmed yet, everyone expects them to arrive not long after next month's launch of Google's Android Wear 2.0.

The model numbers of the smart wearables mentioned above are W270 and W280, and both are said to come with a Qualcomm chipset. They would also offer IP67-rated protection from the elements, with the W280 offering LTE support and wireless charging. Two W280 models are mentioned as well, namely LG-W280A and LG-W280V, apparently carrier-specific models.

According to The Leaker, the upcoming Watch Urbane will have a design similar to its predecessor, but with a Stainless Steel build. If the two smartwatches that are only known for now as W270 and W280 show up soon, it would be a natural choice for LG to unveil them at MWC next month, but this remains to be seen.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
