LG Watch Timepiece is said to be the company’s first Wear OS device to also have an analogue clock setup
LG is reportedly working on wearable smartwatch, which is called as LG Watch Timepiece. The device will be operated on Google’s newly renamed Wear OS. This won’t be a straight-up smartwatch in the vein of the LG Watch Sport or Style, both models which launched in 2017. Timepiece will feature hybrid set up, containing a mechanical clock setup alongside the smart functions. This apparently caters to a demographic that is looking for the best of both worlds – analog and digital.
Furthermore, the Watch Timepiece has a stainless steel body with IP68 certified water and dust resistance. Also, it will have precise quartz movement and physical watch hands. Display LCD screen measures 1.2-inch 360×360 LCD which comes with 240 mAh battery. The smartwatch measures 45.5 x 45.4 x 12.9 mm, coming in between the aforementioned Watch Sport and Watch Style in this regard. The Timepiece also has 4GB of eMMC storage, 768 MB of RAM, and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 2100 chipset. It supports Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.2, however, cellular data is not supported.
Charging of the device is through USB Type-C port. NFC and GPS aren’t expected to be built-in, allegedly. Although the wearable will ship with a 22mm silicone strap, user will be able to change it for something else of same size. A special edition LG Watch Timepiece+ will come with a metal band in the box too, as well as an extra charging cradle. The Watch Timepiece is expected to be avaible officially from Monday, on April 30. It will be offered in two color versions, which include New Aurora Black and Cloud Silver. It’s going to become available at some point in June across the world.
