The recently launched LG G Watch Urbane, a wearable that may have a claim to being the best looking smartwatch yet. The Urbane will have some other calling cards too, including LTE and from what LG says, the best battery life we have seen before in such a wearable. There will be two versions of the G Watch Urbane, a regular one, and one that is packing LTE, allowing it to make calls.Actually, the G Watch Urbane LTE will not be an Android Wear smartwatch and will instead be the first product to carry LG's own proprietary operating system. The money is on that OS being WebOS, which LG recently purchased and has already expanded to its smart TV sets. As for that calling capability, the Urbane LTE will not be the first smartwatch boasting that, Samsung's Gear S and Sony's SmartBand got there first. However, the Urbane will back up its calling capabilities with 4G LTE connectivity, a first. It will also sport enviable battery life thanks to its 700mAh unit, which is nearly double the size of what we are used to.
