Photos of the upcoming LG Watch Style were leaked by a Best Buy employee, suggesting that units were already shipped to retail stores and may soon be made available to the public.

A report from Neowin showed pictures of one of LG's two Android Wear 2.0 devices and its circular display, with a single button located on the right-hand side. Additionally, the photos showed the product with a standard strap size, with a width of either 20mm or 22mm.

More importantly, the new images showed the box with an interesting tagline below the branding that read: "Designed with our friends at Google." It was earlier reported last December that Google will launch two smartwatches in the first quarter of 2017 with Android Wear 2.0, and those devices will feature an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) branding. The speculations were ended last month when LG was announced as the OEM.

Another picture showing the back of the packaging gives a view of the safety sticker bearing a reminder that the smartwatch needs Android 4.3+ or iOS9+ to work with different apps for Android Wear. On the other hand, a photo of the side of the box says that the LG Watch Style has LG-W270 as its model code, and it is manufactured in Korea.

It was reported earlier that the LG Watch Style will sport a 1.2-inch 360x360 AMOLED circular display, 512MB of RAM, and that it will be powered by a 240mAh battery. Android Police mentioned in their report that reliable sources pegged the entry level of the smartwatch at $249.

Furthermore, the Watch Style will debut alongside the LG Watch Sport, which will serve as the flagship among the two. The Watch Sport will feature a 1.38-inch OLED display with 480 x 480 resolution, together with 4GB of storage and 768MB of RAM. Unlike the Style, it will run on a more powerful 430mAh battery. The price tag for the Sport has not been announced yet.
