LG’s flagship smartwatch, the G Watch Urbane, is now available for purchase in India on Amazon. While the watch has been priced at Rs 29,990 on the e-commerce site, GSM arena expects its actual price at Rs. 35,000.
According to Cnet, it’s a fantastic-looking display, big and bright and crisp; just high-res enough to not look pixelated. The Urbane is a few grams heavier than the Watch R, but the real difference is that it looks a little more compactly designed.
Greenbot said this wasn’t a good display-to-case size ratio. Compare it to the Moto 360, which fits a bigger 1.56-inch display into a 46 mm round case that weighs only 49 grams. You may point out that many analog watches have lots of case surrounding the watch face, but such comparisons are moot; those watches don’t demand you interact with them, nor read notification text.
LG Watch G vs Apple Watch
The Apple Watch has the sharper screen, with its Retina Display looking terrific all around, with rich colors and good contrast. The Watch Urbane has a less pixel-dense display (245 PPI vs. the Apple Watch’s ~326 PPI), but the Urbane’s screen is also 21 percent bigger – giving you a more immersive peek into your alerts and other goodies.
