It runs on a Snapdragon wear 2100 processor, 786mb RAM and 4GB internal storage. It comes with the Android Wear 2.0 operating system out of the box with NFC for Android pay support. It is also equipped with a heart rate sensor, GPS, and IP68 water/dust resistance just like the standard model. Just like the Watch 2, it also have a diameter of 45mm.
The main difference between the watch 2 classic and the standard watch 2 is that the former lacks LTE support.
