The watch runs a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU, features a 1.3-inch P-OLED display, 4GB storage, 512MB RAM, and runs Android Wear. The stainless steel body will be available in polished silver and gold finish, attached a stitched leather strap. Additional functionality of the watch wasn't confirmed by LG, with more details expected at MWC.

"The LG Watch Urbane's classic design and smart features make it the perfect smartwatch to complement our G Watch and G Watch R, which were designed as more casual and active devices," said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Mobile Communications. "LG Watch Urbane is an important part of our strategy to develop wearable devices that are worn and viewed as everyday accessories, not electronic gadgets."

The wearables market is expected to create a lot of competition among tech companies, with smartwatches trying to build a strong following.
