(Pocket-lint) - LG is tipped to unveil a new smartwatch in the coming days.
The LG Watch Timepiece is said to be the company's first Wear OS device to also have an analogue clock setup. It is a hybrid, therefore, and can even have the operating system disabled to save on battery life, it is reported.
Android Headlines claims that the watch will have a stainless steel body with IP68 water and dust proofing. It will measure 45.5 x 45.4 x 12.9mm and come with a 22mm silicone strap. That means standard watch bands should fit it, rather than those just made by the manufacturer itself.
There will be a 240mAh battery inside, which will run the Wear OS features mainly, but the watch element will be capable of continuing to work for up to four days between charges.
