LG Watch Urbane review: the newest Android OS in a big, shiny package

 

In the three-odd months since I last reviewed an Android Wear smartwatch, the platform has actually grown on me. A big reason is that Google has shipped a new version of the software that isn't so...

Latest Android Wear software ; Decent battery life ; Always-on screen

It's just really, really big ; Divisive design ; Expensive

LG G Watch R review

 

Watches are functionally boring. Their primary task of displaying the time has been figured out for centuries, which is why modern wristwatches are celebrated for their complications, the extra...

Handsome OLED display makes everything look better ; Solidly built ; Has a few neat tricks for Android users ; Round watches are objectively better than square ones

Software constantly feels incomplete ; Incompatible with iPhone or other platforms ; Circular face clashes with square Google Now cards ; Battery life better than the Moto 360, but still inadequate

LG Watch Sport Review: Big, Bold and Bloated

 

If LG and Google were hoping the Sport Watch or Android Wear 2.0 would make smartwatches must-have devices, then they're going to be sorely disappointed. Apart from some cosmetic changes, there's nothing that makes the watch, or the operating system,...

Always-on display ; Built-in LTE, GPS ; Good app selection,Android Pay

Can’t swap bands ; Very bulky ; Short battery life ; Limited workout features

The LG Watch Sport, the first smartwatch to run Android Wear 2.0, has built-in LTE and GPS and a big, bright display, but it’s too bulky for most people.

LG Watch Urbane LTE Review: Not Smart Enough

 

The LG Watch Urbane LTE is bulkier and more expensive than a typical smartwatch, but does not do much more other than let you get alerts, calls and messages without your phone. Plus, it lasts only half as long as most other smartwatches.

LTE connectivity for freedom from phone ; Solid fitness tracking tool ; Android Wear improvements

Bulky design ; Relatively short battery life ; Limited phone compatibility ; Expensive

The LG Watch Urbane LTE makes and receives calls and messages, and gets notifications without being tethered to your phone, but iPhone owners should wait for iOS compatibility.

LG Watch Urbane Review

 

Wearables are a work in progress, but the LG Watch Urbane is a prime example of how far the category has come. LG continues to up the ante in its hardware design, while Google continues (albeit slowly) to create a useful operating system for your...

Luxurious design ; Sharp, bright display ; Always-on watch face ; Gesture controls for reading notifications.

Limited app selection compared to Apple Watch ; Heavier and bulkier than competing smartwatches.

The LG Watch Urbane is a solid smartwatch in a chic, classic design, but while Android Wear continues to improve, it's still limited.

LG G Watch: Android Wear, Always On [Review]

 

Within the past year we have definitely seen an influx of smartwatches hitting the market. Where it looked to be an area that wasn't going to be tapped into, now mobile companies have been trying to break the wall and be that watch everyone needs....

The LG G Watch is nice addition to the world of wearables. While others have been pretty out there with their styles, LG keeps it simple and to the point with theirs. Depending on the type of consumers though this may help or hurt them. There are those...

LG G Watch Review - Sleek, But Too Much Swiping

 

As one of the first Android Wear smartwatches, the LG G Watch is a fairly capable smartphone companion, but the overall experience isn't as compelling as we had hoped. On the plus side, the always-on screen is easy to read in direct sunlight, and the...

Always-on display ; Comfortable ; Slick interface ; Good use of voice actions

No heart rate monitor ; Android Wear a work in progress ; Lots of swiping required

LG's G Watch is a fairly svelte smartphone companion, but its Android Wear OS doesn't offer enough functionality.

LG Watch Urbane reviewed: The dressiest new smartwatch

 

It's round, it's metal, and it's got the looks. It all comes down to this: is Android Wear good enough?

Crisp, classic design; fully round, beautiful OLED display; latest Android Wear support; Wi-Fi antenna connects to phone across different Wi-Fi networks; decent battery life (for Android Wear).

Big design won't appeal to many wrists; Android Wear software still doesn't feel all that smooth to use; Wi-Fi connectivity spotty at times; watch is expensive compared to other Android Wear options.

The LG Watch Urbane is the best-looking Android Wear smartwatch and adds Wi-Fi-to-phone connectivity, but it doesn't offer all that much more than previous Android Wear watch models.
