A month after its launch, new LG Android Wear 2.0 watch gets up to 36% discount

Last month, alongside the official launch of Android Wear 2.0, LG unveiled two new smartwatches running the latest version of Google's OS. The smaller of the two, the Watch Style, was priced from $249, and has been available to buy since February 10.

Now, just over a month after its release, the Watch Style has already received a chunky discount. Best Buy - the only retailer to offer the device at launch, aside from the Google Store - has slashed the cost of all three Watch Style models.

All of them are now priced at $179.99 - that's $70 (28%) below full price for the black and silver models; and $100 (36%) less than the regular $279.99 cost of the rose gold version. It's not clear when - or even if - the retailer plans to end those discounts.

The Watch Style features a 1.2-inch fully-circular display, a 1.1GHz Snapdragon Wear processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of onboard storage. Along with a 240mAh battery, it also includes IP67 dust- and water-resistance. However, it lacks several key features available in the larger and pricier LG Watch Sport, including NFC support, GPS, 4G LTE connectivity, or a heart-rate sensor.
