LG's new smartwatch will continue to "give hours" for months, even after its battery "dies" at the end of two days.
LG will launch its first hybrid watch, the Watch W7, which crosses the mechanical components of classic handheld models with today's smartwatch technology. The model is the first device to use the new version of Wear OS, released in August.
The new watch has a 1.2-inch touch-screen 300 dpi and a resolution of 360×360 pixels. The device is based on the (former) processor Qualcomm Wear 2100, but LG may eventually in the future update the model with the new 3100 silicon chip. The hardware consists of 768 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage. The LG Watch W7 also guaranteed IP68 certification, giving it resistance to water and dust.
Smart clocks usually have limited autonomy, especially when GPS is used frequently for a few days. LG intends that at least the conventional and primary use of the device does not fail: show the hours. In this sense, the mechanical component of the watch keeps it working for more than three months, even without battery, which can last a couple of days, says Engadget.
The smartwatch arrives in the United States stores next day 14, with a price of 450 dollars.
