The LG Watch Urbane is in the house! The premium Android Wear device from LG, which was first unveiled at MWC in February, is now available on the Google Store for a whopping $349, in case you were interested.
We picked one up to take it for a first spin and share some thoughts on the latest in smartwatches running Google’s wearables platform. With its premium stainless steel body and polished finish (in either silver or gold), along with a P-OLED display, water resistance, heart rate monitor, and genuine leather strap, this is arguably the best yet. Well, that all depends on your taste in watches, of course. The Moto 360, even after all these months, is still the best looking of the bunch, in my opinion.
Outside of the premium nature of the Watch Urbane, this is also the first Android Wear device running Android 5.1. That’s a big deal and we will have more on that shortly.
For now, here is a quick unboxing and tour of the device before we get into some deeper impressions.
