Trustworthy sources from Android Police have been giving the public a heads up since last year regarding Google’s newest pair of flagship smartwatches. One of the unique features of these watches by Google is that they will feature a new “digital crown,” as well as LG hardware and Android Wear 2.0. You may be thinking that these new smartwatches will be of the “Pixel” brand, but in fact, Google has been creating a pair of brand new devices that are “Nexus-style” in their collaboration.

Android Wear 2.0 will be released on February 9th,which is the same day as the release of the new Google flagship watches, which will be named LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style, respectively.

This news was broken by Android Police, who are extremely accurate in their information and who have been tracking a Google smartwatch since July of 2016. Mockups of the two Google Watches was created by Android Police, who say it is very accurate, which means that those who rendered these mockups have not only seen, but handled these devices in person.

The processor for both of these watches is likely to be either Snapdragon Wear 2100 or 1100 and will be based on Android Wear 2.0 (this is a safe assumption since Google is releasing Android Wear 2.0 on the very same day as their new wearables. Both models will feature a new “digital crown,” which is a crown-like button on the side of the case which assists with navigation (somewhat like the Apple Watch).

The two watches also feature iOS compatibility, which will be sure to boost sales. Other features include a Google Assistant integration and dust and water resistance ratings of IP68 (for the Sport) and IP67 (for the Style).
