LG G Watch Urbane LTE might be the best non-Android Wear smartwatch, with 4G calls and 1GB of RAM
LG announced the next tier in its wearable device efforts, and it happens to be a gorgeous LTE-connected smartwatch with the longest battery life out there. That's two firsts for the industry, mind you! So, behold - this is the LG G Watch Urbane LTE, which will keep the non-LTE Urbane's premium design, but it will expand its capabilities with 4G VoLTE calls and introduce LG's proprietary wearable platform. That's right - this is not an Android Wear device, so what else is there? WebOS on a smart-watch? That's more likely than anything, considering LG bought the operating system and already brought it to its smart television sets.

Fast connectivity aside, the G Watch Urbane LTE houses a high-capacity battery! A 700mAh unit surely is more respectable than the 300 to 400mAh batteries powering the first crop of Android Wear-ables.

In addition, the G Watch Urbane LTE includes the full feature set of its predecessor, including a barrage of sensors and IP67 waterproofing certification. However, the amount of RAM has been upgraded to 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM, which, together with the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU, means this thing flexes some serious muscle for something that's made to tick on your wrist.

The LG G Watch Urbane LTE will be presented at this year's MWC. We can't wait to tell you more about it!
