LG’s Watch Style is ready-to-wear, the item will start at $249, say the sources. The smart technologies are gaining the popularity, so, giants like LG are ready to present its new vision of the smart watch. Evan Blass’ leaks revealed the image of the new item from LG lab.

LG’s Watch Style will be launched alongside the LG Watch Sport, last Sunday, thanks to the leak, the users were able to see the new model. This entry-level Style looks very laconic and, in some ways, old-fashioned, but the smartwatch is quite stylish, no doubt. But what about a price of the item?

Evan Blass’ leak gave us an opportunity to see the new creature of LG: band and color, probably, will not be changeable. If so, the price will not fluctuate too much, the start price tag of $249 hardly will be higher. The silver and rose gold versions of LG’s Watch Style look basically be mirror images apart from their colouring.

LG’s Watch Style: price suggestions

Given the Watch Sport adds LTE, NFC, a heart-rate monitor, GPS, and a bigger, higher-resolution display, it’s easy to suggest at least a $100 premium over the $249 Style.

Using as a base the similarly-equipped Urbane 2nd Edition at $359.99 on AT&T (see the video review above) from LG lab, the price tag of $349 is good a guess as any, though the customer wouldn’t be surprised if the price was a bit higher.

This year, LG seems fully supportive of Google’s attempt to revive the fledgeling smartwatch industry, which analysts predict to sustain sluggish and even declining growth in 2017.
