LG Electronics (LG) and Google will officially unveil the world’s first smartwatches to come preloaded with the Android Wear 2.0™ operating system. LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style begin their global rollout in the United States starting February 10th and will be followed by key markets in Europe and Asia via the Google Store and select retail stores later this month.

The LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style, powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Wear 2100 processor for next-gen wearables, are the first watches running Android Wear 2.0, Google’s newest wearable OS. Both watches have the Google Assistant built-in, and the LG Watch Sport supports Android Pay™ with NFC technology. In addition, these two smart devices provide an improved user interface, enhanced messaging and advanced fitness features with Google Fit.

First Watches Running Android Wear 2.0

Android Wear 2.0 brings the Google Assistant 1 to the wrist. Users can reply to a message, set a reminder, or ask for directions by holding the power button or saying “Ok Google”. With Google Fit, users can reach their fitness goals through activities tracking, strength training and coaching. User can also download their favorite apps directly from the on-watch Google Play Store.

The LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style feature circular displays with a rotating side button for easy and convenient navigation. Users can turn the button with a finger to read messages or scroll through the app menu and notification. Customizable watch faces allow up to eight complications so users can see important information at glance. Android Wear 2.0 improves the messaging experience on the watch.
