The Watch Urbane Android Wear device include Wi-Fi connectivity, always-on apps to keep the display from going dark when running, navigating and an improved UX that makes launching favorite apps.
The latest OS allows users to send emoticons by drawing them directly on the LG Watch Urbane. Draw a smiley face, a clock showing a certain time or any other pictures and Android Wear will match your drawing to the closest Unicode emoticon for sending to another Android Wear watch, smartphone, or computer.
Other improvements include the ability to change the font size and see notifications even when looking at another function on the display, such as directions. The LG Watch Ur-bane can now be set to lock automatically when it is removed from the wrist.
“Included in LG Watch Urbane are two new and useful features not available on other Android Wear devices: LG Call and LG Pulse,” according to the release. LG Call allows the user to access recent calls and the favorite contacts list on the connected smartphone to dial out directly from the watch. LG Pulse measures the user’s heart rate every second during exercise with no maximum time limit and report the average heart rate over the entire duration on LG Health, which is coming soon.
