Smart watches in my opinion have not been something of beauty like a luxury not smart analogue watch. Smart watches have just looked like a computer on my wrist but I think this one is different. The regular Urbane is a good looking watch in its own right but with the gold case and the altered strap it looks even better.
This smart watch like most is running Android Wear, which I personally prefer over apple’s watch os. The heart of the watch is going to be a 1.3″ OLED display with a resolution of 320×320. LG Urbane Luxe will be powered by a 1.2GHz quad core CPU, which in my opinion will be over kill and a battery waste. The Verge commented that the strap is very high quality but quite awkward to use, they also commented that there is little difference from the original version.
LG have priced this at the respectable $1200 that is almost $9000 less than Apple’s equivalent. For the price of the Apple Watch Edition you can buy this, a car and still have change! Even when comparing the price to a luxury watch it is still competitive because the cheapest Tag Heuer goes for $1500+. If I had the money to spend on a luxury smart watch I would still go for a luxury watch, because they don’t appeal to me all that much but if you like smart watches and have the money you should consider this.
Are you running out to get this?
