Wonderful news from Google, as the new LG smartwatch with subtle gestures is already available for pre-order. Following the latest news in technology, Google is introducing the first smartwatch with cellular support, and thus completely autonomous from a mobile phone. What’s more is that is also comes with a lot of new hand and wrist gestures, so users can navigate it at their own pace.
The watch is the second edition of LG Watch Urbane. It is equipped with cellular support, so it can connect to the Internet the same way a mobile phone connects to mobile data. In this way users can go for a jog or at the gym and have all their emails and social media platforms with them at all times. It is also particularly useful in the case when we forget our phones at home, and are doomed to an entire day disconnected from our virtual realities.
But this news came out a few days ago. What is new today is that the futuristic watch is also upgraded with a lot of smart gestures, in other words users can simply flick their wrists to give certain commands to the wearable device. “Wrist Gestures” are normally enabled on a smartwatch, but this can also be checked in the settings menu. Within the Gesture Tutorial users can practice and test wrist gestures.
But how can it detect the commands when Android Wear has so many options? Apparently the watch will depend on the direction and speed of the movement, but not on the motion’s range. Other options included in the new LG Watch Urbane are scroll through cards, taking an action on cards, and from and to the watch face. For example, if the users push their arm down they will take action on one of the cards.
It has been noted by Google that enabling such smart gestures might slightly decrease the life of the battery, so keep that in mind when you’re running low on battery energy.
And those are not all the new features of the smartwatch. It will also include audio alerts ushering for the devices with speakers and audio feedback. However, up to this moment it is unknown whether it will have support for sending messages by touch or voice through Nextplus, Viber, WeChat, Telegram or WhatsApp. It is more than likely that those will come in a future update for the new LG smartwatch with subtle gestures.
