Upcoming LG Watch Style may start at $249

Do you like what you've seen of the LG Watch Style so far? A "trusted source" told Android Police that the smartwatch goodness (pictured above) will start at $249. If LG offers more choices of band style and color, it will have room to experiment with higher price points.

Also, the LG Watch Style will launch together with the LG Watch Sport, which is rumored to be a more fully-featured smartwatch that probably commands a higher price point. More specifically, the Sport edition adds features like LTE, NFC, heart rate monitoring, GPS, waterproofing, and a higher resolution display. Thus, a price premium of $100 or more seems in the line.

The LG Watch Style and Sport should be unveiled February 9, together with the Android Wear 2.0 platform that powers them. Hopefully, the new LG smartwatches will present a strong case for Google's new operating system.

I want to see the titanium finish with a black leather band.

Smart watch for the most part is a failure. While I do use my Apple Watch everyday I feel like doesn't do any more than a fitness band. All the features are already present in my phone.

That's the whole point of a smart watch! It's not going to do anything your phone can't do otherwise than fitness tracking.
