Sleek Design and Traditional Watch Face

The Urbane includes the same 1.3-inch, full-circle P-OLED display that appeared on last September's LG G Watch R smartwatch, but has a narrower bezel with sleeker lines. The new watch is a more formal-looking device, compared with plastic watches for more active users.

Swappable Wrist Bands for Different Styles

The Urbane also includes a stitched natural leather strap that can be swapped out for any 22mm watchband, giving users a lot of styling choices. The standard Urbane smartwatch runs on the Android Wear operating system.
