This Is The New LG Watch Sport

On Apple News, please favorite the 1redDrop channel to get us in your news feed. Google's updated smartwatch platform has finally arrived, with a duo of lead devices - the LG Watch Sport and the LG Watch Style - signalling a new era. An illustration of a shelf display for the watch was sighted somewhere. It has a 1.39-inch AMOLED display, 450mAh battery, NFC for Android Pay and IP67 water resistance.

According to VentureBeat, ZTE showed off two watches; Venus 1 and Venus 2 at Mobile World Congress past year, although they were considered primarily activity trackers that lack the robustness of a full wearable platform.

The Wear24 will launch online and in Verizon stores next month for $300 with a two-year contract, which lines up roughly with the carrier's Watch Sport pricing ($330 on a two-year contract or $380 full retail).

Google has planned to launch the Android Wear 2.0 and intends to increase the adoption rate so as to get them to as many customers as possible. Until then, it'll be interesting to note which other apps for Android Wear 2.0 pop up on the Play Store. Verizon and AT&T will both start selling the LG Watch Sport later this week, on February 10.

A rival petition , supporting the state visit plan, had attracted 120,678 signatures, including 227 and 265 from the two constituencies respectively.

For those that utilize smartwatches for their fitness tracking capabilities, the pre-installed Google Fit app receives some 2.0 updates as well. The wearable device is expected to have premium features with Android Wear 2.0 running in the background.

The Watch Sport is a bigger and more expensive LG smartwatch. Just days before the purported February 9 debut, the LG Watch Sport has surfaced on a benchmarking site, giving another sneak peek into what to expect. When a message is received, users can dictate or handwrite an answer, and "Smart Reply" includes intelligent, contextual responses based on the incoming message.

The new software will also come with a support for inline action, which means that users are now allowed to act on any notification that will appear within the notification stream card. Meanwhile, a report on Android Police claims the Watch Sport will launch with a price of $349 ( or approx Rs 23,447), the less feature-packed LG Watch Style is priced at $249 ( or approx Rs 16,729).
