The LG Watch Style Looks Like an Actual Smartwatch Watch We’d Wear

The LG Watch Style Looks Like an Actual Smartwatch Watch We’d Wear: Via LG

Via LG

Despite the fact that I have over a dozen watches, from old Casios to random pieces I bought when traveling the world during moments of “maybe I’ll wear a watch!”, I’m not a watch person. And when it comes to smartwatches, I’m probably even less of a watch person.

I was gifted an Apple Watch when it came out, one of the nice ones in chrome with the Milanese loop, and I gave it a spin. I wore it every day. I checked my email on my wrist. I spoke to Siri. I navigated the canyons of Manhattan with Maps as my walking guide. I liked it. It was shiny and new.

But now I could care less. Now I just use it to tell the time, if I remember to put it on at all.

Maybe I’m not a smartwatch person. Maybe I’m just not a watch person at all as I originally suspected.

But the LG Watch Style leaked this week, as part of a leak along with a slew of Android Wear 2.0 devices, actually looks like a watch. And that’s just the problem with smartwatches, the Apple Watch included. While they’re shiny and new, they’re thick, blank-faced and clearly smartwatches. The LF Watch Style though is a round-faced, beveled device in what appears to be silver and rose gold, and even if you don’t need to check your email, would look good with everything from a suit on down to a pair of jeans and T-shirt.

According to reports, the LG Watch Style will feature a 1.2-inch 360x360-pixel display, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, water resistant technology and a 240mAh battery. Rumors point to a more-powerful, larger LG Watch Sport that will include a 1.38-inch 480x480-pixel display along with GPS and NFC for Android Pay.

Could this be the first smartwatch I would actually pay money for? Perhaps, but for now, at least it looks like an actual watch.
