Unveiled only a couple months ago during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, LG’s Watch Urbane is finally available to order now in the Google Store.

The smartwatch, which costs $349 - which is the exact same price as the cheapest version of the Apple Watch, the Sport, which has an aluminum case and a plastic band - features a stainless steel case and a leather band, which is more similar to the Apple Watch, which costs closer to $699.

Either silver or gold, the device is resistant to water (up to IP67 specifications) and dust, and has a battery that will last a full day.

As for the specs, under the hood of the LG Watch Urbane is a 1.3-inch P-OLED, Gorilla Glass 3 display, with a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor (which is hard to even conceptualize in a wearable), 512MB of RAM (which is as much as budget friendly smartphones), 4GB of internal memory (which more than the iPhone 6), and with a 410mAh battery.

According to the Google Store product page, the LG Watch Urbane units will start shipping on May 8.

As for the bigger (and better) brother, the LG Watch Urbane LTE, which runs on a customized version of WebOS instead of Android Wear (which runs the Watch Urbane), we still don’t know when it will arrive in the good ol’ US of A.
