LG has a new wearable in operation, but this time it's a hybrid smartwatch that runs Wear OS. Contradicting the trend of its full-screen watches, the LG Watch Timepiece, as it is rumored to be called, divides its digital and analog capabilities through the medium.
It is said that The Timepiece presents the latest Wear OS software, which means that you can run native applications and it will have compatibility with iOS and Android. In that way, it is a business as always for LG, but with a new approach is with its mechanical hands.
The biggest and most obvious benefit of using the analog route is a better battery life. From a full charge in your "Surveillance Mode", which shuts it down to its most basic state, it is said to last 100 days. On the other hand, if you squeeze every drop of your 240 mAh battery with Wear OS, you can wait at the most another 100 hours before it completely disappears.
It is worth noting that this will not be the first watch to combine digital with analog design and functionality. The MyKronoz ZeTime wins that distinction, although it failed to maintain the landing with its proprietary operating system.
