LG is working on a sports watch, leaked pictures show
LG is looking to bolster its smartwatch line-up with a sport-themed training watch, judging by pictures posted online by the FCC on Wednesday.
The maker of Android Wear watches like the LG G Watch Urbane is working on a device with the model name LG-VC110.
According to the FCC posting it is Wi-Fi enabled, but’ll also rock an LTE radio. Naturally it’ll be resistant to the elements to some extent and can recharged via a micro-USB port.
Earlier reports had suggested the VC110 would be LG’s next Android Wear device, but a source told SlashGear it’ll be an affordable, budget device without Google’s wearable OS.
There’s no word yet when we might see the device get an official roll out, but IFA 2015 is just a couple of weeks away.
LG will enter an arena populated by sportswear makers like
Adidas, navigation specialists like Garmin and TomTom and tech firms
like Samsung and Apple who’re all seeking to capitalise on tech’s seemingly limitless incursion into the fitness industry.
