LG goes for the 'Urbane' look with latest G Watch iteration

LG today has unveiled its latest Android Wear building on the original LG G Watch R and coming up with a more stylish and formal and all-metal "LG Watch Urbane" that's "designed for a sophisticated and cosmopolitan wearer." Available in gold or silver, it's still a standard 22mm model, so you'll be able to swap out straps if you like. LG's slimmed down the bezel, as well as the overall size and thickness. The stainless steel handle also has improve protection against scratches and corrosion.
Spec-wise, you're pretty much looking at the same as the original G Watch R, including a 1.3-inch, 320x320 Plastic OLED display, which is the best we've seen on a smartwatch thus far.
LG says its new analog watch face on the Urbane is the closest thing we've seen to a real analog face on a smartwatch. And it's not quite as ornate as the special-edition Audi watch we broke the news on at CES, but it's close.
We'll get a closer look at this guy in a couple week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
