Google and LG Introduce Watch Sport and Watch Style, Available February 10

lg watch sport watch style

Google and LG officially unveiled the Watch Sport and Watch Style today after weeks of leaks. The devices are very much what we expected: one is a fully-featured sport-style connectivity and Android Pay, while the other is more fashion-focused.

The Watch Sport is “Android Wear’s most powerful watch yet,” according to Google. It features GPS, NFC for payments, a heart rate sensor, and cellular connectivity with AT&T and Verizon. It’s body features three buttons, including a rotating power button that helps you navigate the watch and comes in dark blue or titanium.

As for other specs, you are looking at a 1.38-inch circular POLED display, 430mAh battery, 4GB storage, 768MB RAM, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear processor.

The Watch Style is “thin, light, beautiful to look at, and comfortable to wear,” says Google. It comes in silver, rose gold, and titanium, and features that same rotating power button as the Sport for navigation. It does not include a GPS, NFC, heart rate sensor, or cellular connectivity. But hey, it does let you swap out watch bands quickly, unlike the Sport.

For other Style specs, you have a 1.20-inch circular POLED display, 240mAh battery, 4GB storage, 512MB RAM, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear processor.

The LG Watch Style will be available at Best Buy and the Google Store for $249, while the LG Watch Sport will sell at AT&T, Verizon and the Google Store, as early asΒ February 10. Pricing on the Watch Sport varies depending on carrier, but Google will sell it for $349.

    so its 11am on launch day. best buys website claims they have no watch styles anywhere in new york. and all the ATT and Verizon stores I called said they have to order it in. The google store hasnt updated to offer either models. How am I supposed to purchase a watch?

  • How does this processor (Snapdragon Wear 2100) compare to the one on the Moto 360 v2 (SnapdragonTM 400)? I like the larger display size of the 360, but a bit more smoothness would be nice.

    What is the screen made of? Gorilla glass or just regular watch glass?

    • Orlando aka Pixel XL

      Gorilla Glass 3

  • Ajmobileguru

    240 mah! Lol. And despite skimping on the battery, the Style watch is this huge! WTF LG!

  • Mike

    meh! just keep the options coming! G Watch R hanging in there like a champ.

    • Orlando aka Pixel XL

      Mine has spots all over the screen…

    They’re STILL using 28nm SoC’s in these things?!? We’ve gotten nowhere in terms of process since Android Smart Watches launched. The earliest ones used modified Snapdragon 400’s which were also 28nm. (excluding Moto who used an ancient TI OMAP chip). With the Snapdragon 835 coming out soon at 10nm I’d have thought wearables which desperately need lower heat/power/size would AT LEAST be on 20nm or 14nm by now. I don’t expect them to be on the latest and greatest (10nm) but jeeze, I expect SOME progress over the Snapdragon 400’s they started at. I’ll pass, maybe next cycle.

      Also still at 4GB storage. I bet Wear 2.0 uses up even more of that now, too (anyone have info on this?). 4GB storage is pretty outrageous with the advancements in flash density since the first Wear devices. πŸ™ Is there any 2.0 Wear coming with >4GB???

  • Raven

    Well, I really wanted to like the new Google/LG watch, but I am afraid that they are both a miss for me. The Sport is too big and bulky and the Style is too gimped with its tiny battery and lacking the new features of a speaker and NFC. The Asus ZenWatch 3 tempts me more, but I am still waiting for something that checks all of the boxes for me to replace my trusty old OG Moto 360.

  • steadymobb

    $349?! Damn. I got my Frontier s3 for $270 – I guess if you HAVE to have Android Wear this isn’t…bad?

  • Foodie 3215

    Wait so I can only buy it through Verizon and it will only work on Verizon or I have to buy the At&t one and it only works on At&t. So no T-mobile support. I’ll stick with my 360sport. Don’t need the LTE and it I like the simple styling better anyway.

    • Jacob Roth

      There should be T-mobile supports as it does accept 2 and 4 LTE Bands but you will need to buy from Google. At least that is what I believe can be done I see no reason it cannot be.

    I always say they need a bigger battery…then comes this, and it about as thick as a loaf of bread. yikes. I actually dig the design though, besides the thickness. I wish it were a bit cheaper, but this is getting very close to getting me to upgrade from my OG 360.

  • pilot25

    Can you add this to a VZ unlimited data plan?

    • trixnkix637

      you can’t add devices to an unlimited plan anymore. they’ll force you to the new data tiers.

      • pilot25

        Thanks. Guess I’ll pass on this

    • Futbolrunner

      I just called Verizon and they said I could add it to my unlimited data plan. We’ll see come Friday.

    • I assume you could just pop in the same sim card you’re using on your phone right? Would they block it?

  • Koneesha

    So I need to pay extra to use the LTE on the sport right?

I was following a money making model I found online and I am amazed that I was able to earn such great money. It’s really beginner friendly and I’m just so grateful that i found it.

    Nice price for the Style. I’ll grab one after I give some money to Nintendo for the Switch.

    • trixnkix637

      either you make a lot of money, or you’re very optimistic that Nintendo isn’t going to Nintendo you on the Switch lol.
