At the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2015), LG Electronics will introduce its first all-metal luxury Android Wear device.
LG Watch Urbane, an advanced version of LG Watch R smartwatch, promises high-end features and technology.
Announced in October 2014, LG Watch R is the first smartwatch with a full circular Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display.
LG Watch Urbane will have a thinner profile – targeting both men and women.
The LG Watch Urbane will have 1.3-inch full circle P-OLED display and features a narrower bezel that gives it sleeker lines.
Key specifications of LG Watch Urbane:
Chipset: 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400
Operating System: Android Wear

Size: 45.5 x 52.2 x 10.9mm
Memory: 4GB eMMC / 512MB LPDDR2
Sensors: 9-Axis (Gyro / Accelerometer / Compass) / Barometer / PPG (Heart Rate Sensor)

LG said its stainless steel body is available in polished silver and gold finish and is complemented by a stitched natural leather strap for a more classic look. Users can replace the strap with any 22mm wide band to suit the occasion or the wearer’s mood.
LG Watch Urbane is compatible with smartphones running Android 4.3 and above.
LG’s latest Android Wear device includes a photoplethysmography (PPG) sensor that can measure a wearer’s heart rate and average pulse during exercise. Always-On ambient mode shows the time on the display at all times in dimmed mode, saving battery life.
