Rumours: Google to announce a Nexus smartwatch?


While the smartwatch market is not growing as fast as it can be, the adoption of the devices is still growing on a slow and steady rate. Google’s Android Wear 2.0 may change all of those, and the brand that is set to start the race is said to be LG.

The two watches are said to be named Watch Sport and Watch Style, and we may be expecting them during Mobile World Congress. Specs-wise, the LG Watch Sport is the better geared. It sports a 1.38-inch OLED display with 480 x 480 pixels resolution, 768MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and a 430mAh battery. On the other hand, the LG Watch Style features a smaller 1.2-inch OLED display that supports 360 x 360 pixels resolution, 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal memory, and a 240mAh battery.

Both smartwatches come with iOS compatibility and multiple connectivity options including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. However, the Watch Sport offers cellular connectivity (3G and LTE) as well, along with GPS and NFC (Near Field Communication), which allows users to take advantage of Android Pay.
