LG, the renowned South Korean company, has just launched a new smartwatch known as the LG Watch W7. This smartwatch is being touted as a game-changer in the industry due to some unique features it offers. Does it live up to the hype surrounding it? Here’s everything you need to know.

A truly unique smartwatch design

The LG Watch W7 stands out amongst the multitude of smartwatches available in the market in one crucial aspect – in addition to the touchscreen found on every smartwatch, it also has mechanical hands with Swiss precision movement to display the time. This hybrid design is one of the USPs of the device, and the advantages it provides are manifold.

Unlike other smartwatches, the screen doesn’t have to be always on in order to display the time. Moreover, you can read the time easily even in extremely bright sunlight – something that can be quite a problem with other smartwatches. Finally, this innovative design makes the LG Watch W7 truly unique by giving it a more traditional watch-like appearance on the wrist.

Robust hardware ably supplemented by powerful software

The LG Watch W7 sports a premium stainless-steel design with a 1.2inch edge-to-edge LCD that enables easy viewing and touch control for the user. It also features three physical buttons on the side to aid navigation and other functions. An IP68 rating for dust and water resistance makes the LG Watch W7 well suited for outdoor activities in all kinds of weather.

The smartwatch is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100 chipset paired with 768MB of RAM 4GB of internal storage space. Running on the latest version of Wear OS by Google, the LG Watch W7 supports both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for seamless connectivity.

The smartwatch is loaded with features that make it a solid, all-around performer. Apart from the usual customizable watch faces and interchangeable straps, the LG Watch W7 also comes with some other useful features such as a compass, stopwatch, barometer and altimeter. Of course, you can also download a variety of supported apps from the Google Play Store to increase the utility of the smartwatch.

Impressive battery life with a ‘time-only’ mode

The LG Watch W7 is fitted with a 240mAh Li-Ion battery that should easily last users a full day even with extensive usage. As mentioned above, this smartwatch negates the need for an always-on display as it features mechanical hands to tell the time. This helps it save some precious battery life. Another huge advantage that the LG Watch W7 holds over rivals is that you can still read the time even if the smartwatch runs out of juice.

Price

You can purchase the LG Watch W7 for Rs 28,000 from the official LG website. Most users will feel that this asking price is warranted as the LG Watch W7 perfectly blends the nostalgic charm of a traditional watch with the new-age functionalities of a modern smartwatch.
