LG Watch Sport unveiled with Android Wear 2.0

by Todd Haselton | February 8, 2017

Verizon took the wraps off of Google and LG’s big announcement a hair early. The carrier just published a page revealing the LG Watch Sport in full, including its $379 price tag ($329 on contract.)

The LG Watch Sport features a 1.38-inch Plastic OLED display with 348ppi (480 x 480-pixel resolution), support for LTE connectivity, 4GB of storage, a 430mAh battery, a heart rate sensor and, of course, Android Wear 2.0.

One highlight that we haven’t had in earlier Android Wear watches is support for Android Pay, which means you should be able to tap your wrist at a check-out counter to buy goods, so long as the terminal supports Android Wear.

In addition to Verizon, the LG Watch Sport will be available from AT&T, the Google Store and Best Buy starting on February 10. It’ll launch in several markets around the world, including the UK and Canada, in the coming weeks.
