LG is getting ready to launch at least two new smartwatches next week, on February 9, together with the Android Wear 2.0 platform. The less expensive LG Watch Style is expected to start at $249 with the standard colors and band options, and we have now learned the price of the LG Watch Sport model.
The high-end smartwatch is rumoured to start at $349 and for that price you’ll get LTE connectivity, NFC with support for Android Pay, GPS, a heart rate monitor, better display and probably a few other improvements.
What do you think, will that be enough to dethrone the Apple Watch Series 2, which sells for $50 more, but lacks LTE?
