LG Watch Sport appears on Geekbench

LG Watch Sport appears on Geekbench
As we've told you before, Google and LG will introduce two new smartwatches on February 8th, and launch them two days later. These two timepieces are the first to come out of the box with Android Wear 2.0 pre-installed. The LG Watch Style is the lower priced of the two, with $249 rumored to be that price. Speculation has the LG Watch Sport priced $100 higher at $349. The latter model comes with a heart rate monitor, LTE (meaning that it will make and take calls without pairing with a smartphone), GPS and NFC. While the Watch Style will have an IP67 certification rating, the Watch Sport carries an IP68 certification rating.

The LG Watch Sport has been spotted on Geekbench, where it appears to be powered by an unknown quad-core CPU (clocked at 1.09GHz for the benchmark test). The Geekbench benchmark test results also showed that the watch will carry 768MB of RAM, and confirmed an earlier codename for the wearable of 'swordfish'. Other rumored specs include a 1.38-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 480. 4GB of internal storage is said to be on board, with a 430mAh battery keeping the lights on.

Some additional tidbits to point out here; the listing of Android 7.1.1 under operating system no doubt stands for Android Wear 2.0. And the LG Watch Sport scored a single core test result of 273 with a multi-core score of 418.

Oh, yes. Let's use the most useless benchmark tool on the market to set a benchmark test for a smart watch. Geekbench always shows the lowest CPU clock rating, and PhoneArena always shows that off. Well then if nothing else people can now see that Android Wear can run full Android apps, including existing Android apps on Googles play store. So whoever did this test then made sure to upload the results to Geekbench's useless database.

Geekbench only reports the lowest CPU clock rating if there is a big.little setup, this watch doesn't have a big.little setup and the CPU clock reported is actually what it is. Geekbench 4 is actually probably the best crossplatform CPU benchmark on the market right now as it has all the latest extensions of ARMv8/and also extensions on X64 like SSE4.2, etc. Geekbench 4 also cuts out any benchmark booster found. In reality Geekbench 4 is a great benchmark tool for determining CPU performance. It pushes any ARMv8/x64 chip to their absolute brink, using every extension available on said CPU "Well then if nothing else people can now see that Android Wear can run full Android apps, including existing Android apps on Googles play store." You don't say? Obviously a ARM chip can ARM applications...this isn't news to anyone but you obviously lol.... Please stop spreading absolutely false information just because your not educated on the topic and that it doesn't play into your fanboy agenda

Definitely not a sports watch if the case and band are metal. please someone make a g-shock style android wear watch so I can use it in the real world without worrying about it all the time. $150-ish and it would sell

I agree, If Casio would make a g-shock smart watch with a thinner form factor, maintain ruggedness/durability, implement solar power (rather than a two layer screen, when one can suffice as the rest of the market does), & maybe a certain promise on updates or let google to it direct ... Even if they left the price as is currently, ok maybe drop it down $100-200, They would still win the market hands down either way. If they are going to make a outdoors watch, make it truly for people to go outdoors and not have to worry about charging it every day. Contrary, make it diverse. Where it can be used in business attire Mon-Fri & the woods or trails Fri-Sun.

Casio has already made 2 smart watches called the Casio WSD-F10 and WSD-F20. The WSD-F20 is due to arrive this April. It has GPS, with 3 buttons, and is rated to 50 meters. Not to mention it is rated with MIL-STD-810. So it is shock proof, water proof, dust proof, vibration proof. It comes with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 SoC. Another watch that is MIL-STD-810 Android Wear smart watch is the Nixon Mission. It has GPS, and is rated for a depth of 100 meters. If you want a really good fitness tracker with Android Wear, then the Polar M600 is that device. It has the best heart rate monitors on any smart watch or fitness band, GPS, and is rated for 50 feet.
