According to additional details, the LG Watch Strap will be available in three different finishes, comprising up of silver, rose gold and titanium (the Watch Sport isn’t going to be available in the rose gold version).

If you want to pair a smartwatch to a smartphone or tablet, then that particular mobile device needs to be running either Android 4.3 or higher, or iOS 9 or higher. As for the pricing, the LG Watch Sport retails for $349.99, while the Watch Style is going to set you back by $249.99. Which wearable would you upgrade to in the near future?
