When LG launched its latest flagship smartphone, the V40 ThinQ, at an event in New York earlier, the Korean handset maker also unveiled its newest smartwatch, the Watch W7. As previously rumored, the Watch W7 is a hybrid smartwatch that incorporates actual mechanical hands that sit beneath the touchscreen display. Encased in a stainless steel body, the W7 boasts battery of up to one-hundred days, an achievement made possible by, you guessed it, those mechanical watch hands. Join us after the break for the full specifications.
Launching at this stage in 2018, the LG Watch W7 includes a couple of surprising hardware choices, not least the use of Qualcomm’s SD2100 platform from 2016 instead of the newly announced SD3100 platform.
