This Android Wear-powered smartwatch will debut next month as the company's first all-metal luxury wearable.

Only a few days after the stainless steel-made Sony SmartWatch 3 became available worldwide, LG announces its direct competitor. LG Watch Urbane will be unveiled next month at MWC 2015 in Barcelona and promises to be a device "designed for a sophisticated and cosmopolitan wearer that delivers unparalleled technology and performance."

LG Watch Urbane has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400
  • Memory/Storage: 512 MB LPDDR2 RAM; 4 GB eMMC internal storage
  • Display: 1.3-inch P-OLED with 320X320 pixels and 245 ppi
  • Sensors: heart rate, gyro, accelerometer, compass, barometer
  • Operating system: Android Wear
  • Battery: 410 mAh

This "device for wearers looking to add both style and high-tech flare to their everyday lives" will be available in gold and silver and comes with IP67-standard protection from dust and water. Availability and pricing are still unknown for now, but we will surely hear more about it next month at MWC, so stay tuned.

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.
