Beside launching the "ultimate five camera smartphone", LG also unveiled its latest smartwatch - the Watch W7. It is developed in partnership with Soprod SA of Switzerland and has mechanical hands.

While the Watch W7 is the latest smartwatch from the Korean company, it is clearly not the best in terms of specs. It is powered by the two-year-old Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset, Wear OS and 768MB RAM with 4GB internal storage. It lacks many of the features found in modern smartwatches such as GPS, LTE connectivity, NFC (which means no Android Pay) and no heart rate sensor. 

The 240mAh battery in the Watch W7 can last up to two days on a single charge and have an additional 3 to 4 days in analog-only mode. With its "smart" features disabled in mechanical watch-only mode, the Watch W7 can last up to 100 days or more than three months. 

Other specs include a 1.2-inch LCD display (360 x 360 pixels), IP68 water and dust resistance, Bluetooth 4.2 BLE and USB Type-C 2.0.
