LG Watch Urbane will be available from Google Store this month

LG’s latest Android Wear smartwatch, Watch Urbane, will go on sale through the Google Store this month in the U.S. and other markets around the world. It will be the first wearable to run Google’s latest Android Wear software out of the box.

Announced at Mobile World Congress back in early March, Watch Urbane is a modern wearable that’s designed to look more like a traditional timepiece. Inside its all-metal shell, however, you’ll find the same 1.3-inch P-OLED display that features in LG’s G Watch R.

Other specifications include a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage. Watch Urbane also boasts a heart-rate monitor, a 410mAh battery, and Wi-Fi connectivity — unlike LG’s other Android Wear devices.

Watch Urbane will come with Google’s latest Android Wear update pre-installed. In addition to support for Wi-Fi, the software brings emojis, and always-on applications.

Watch Urbane will make its initial debut in LG’s native South Korea this week, but it will quickly rollout to other markets throughout the rest of April. LG says the device will be available in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Spain, the U.S. and the U.K. before the end of the month.

There’s no word on how much the device will cost yet; we’ll probably have to wait for it to go on sale to get local pricing.
