Photos of LG Watch Style packaging reveal a pretty boring design
In just a few days, LG is expected to officially reveal two new smartwatches on the same day Google is set to launch the biggest update to its wearable device platform, Android Wear 2.0. Today, photos of the retail packaging of one of them, the LG Watch Style, have surfaced, and they show a remarkably unremarkable design, especially considering the name.
The box, unfortunately, shows only the front of the device, which looks like a run-of-the mill watch, with its circular design and single button on the side. The pictures match leaked renders of the device, which also featured a different color scheme, meaning the device will be sold in multiple versions, as expected. The manufacturing date on the side shows it was made some time last month in Korea.
The box doesn’t reveal anything about the Watch Style’s internals, but rumors suggest it will not feature features such as LTE, GPS, or a heart rate monitor, making its supposed price tag of $249 pretty hefty. While it’s possible LG has a secret trick up its sleeve, all signs point otherwise, as the device has been extensively leaked for the past month or so. The LG Watch Style and its bigger brother, the LG Watch Sport, are set to be revealed on February 8th at the Android Wear 2.0 launch event.
