Alongside the introduction of the brand new LG V40, LG took the wraps off of its cutting-edge smartwatch, the LG Watch W7. That is the first new wearable from the company for the reason that Watch Sport and Watch style launched in partnership with Google back at the begin of 2017. LG is hoping to experience the momentum of launching on the identical time as Google’s rollout of a new Wear OS interface, however the enterprise is doing something altogether precise: this is a “hybrid” smartwatch with physical hour and minute fingers, like a standard mechanical watch.

LG Watch W7 Hybrid Smartwatch Design

The round watch looks even greater ordinary way to its physical watch hands. The LED display beneath provides more design for watch faces, and also shows records like every other Google wear OS watch. that could make this an exciting choice for a “I want a smartwatch that looks like a ordinary watch” character.

The stainless steel frame also includes IP68 resistance, Bluetooth 4.2 and the last-gen Snapdragon 2100. There’s also 768MB of RAM and 4GB of storage for music.

As for battery life, LG says it’ll last two days when in smartwatch mode. There’s also a watch mode that will keep those physical hands working for 100 days, so even if the smartwatch portion of the phone is dead, you’ve still got a working watch. The bezel does include numbers that the watch hands will point to.

There are some key things missing from the Watch W7. There’s no NFC for Google Pay, no heart rate sensor and no GPS. So you’re getting a barebones Wear OS experience here.

LG Watch W7 Hybrid Smartwatch Price

For all of that hybrid watch goodness, you’ll pay a bit more than you would expect for a standard Wear OS smartwatch. The LG Watch W7 is $449, sending a signal that it’s focused on quality rather than mainstream appeal. And despite its unique watch hands, it’s available almost immediately — you can get one from Best Buy.
