LG G Watch Review


LG has been teasing us with its Watch for a while, but it was finally announced and demonstrated during Google IO. We have been using one ever since we posted our first impressions and the goal for this review if to give you a good sense for how it...

LG G Watch R review: good looks and improved battery are a step in the right direction


In the fast-moving world of Android Wear devices, you don't get long at the top it seems. The G Watch R looks just as good as the Moto 360, and with the best battery life of any Wear watch to date, it (just) beats the Motorola in the battle for Android...

Attractive design ; Full circular display ; Improved battery life

Not very unisex ; Strap a bit stiff ; A bit pricey

With better battery life and a fully circular display, the G Watch R has two distinct advantages over its nearest rival. In many ways, that makes it an open-and-shut case. But, of course, with wearables it's never as simple as that. You may well prefer...

LG G Watch R


The LG G Watch R is the best Android Wear smartwatch yet, but it's expensive and we still aren't fully sold on the operating system.

Gorgeous design. Improved battery life. Sharp, vivid screen. Nice watch faces.

Expensive. Still bulky. Battery still isn't great. Android Wear still underwhelms.

LG G Watch R review


Fanatical fashion followers finally have a smartwatch that they won't be ashamed to wrap around their wrist.

With its round design, angular metal frame and selection of gorgeous watch faces, the LG G Watch R is the most attractive Android Wear Smartwatch around. It's battery life isn't bad either.

Final pricing is still unclear. Battery life, while better than Android Wear competitors, still isn't good enough for the average person. The watch's design won't appeal to those who prefer sleek, slim timepieces.

Although its stark design and beautiful face makes this the first smartwatch you might actually be happy to be seen wearing, its Android Wear software has a long way to go before it's anything more than a passing novelty.

LG G Watch review


Like most other smartwatches, the LG G Watch is unattractive when it should be beautiful, unhelpful when it ought to make life easier, and overall, unappealing. However, the smartwatch will evolve and the wearable market will thrive – just as soon as...

The smartwatch may very well be the next great frontier for mobile devices and Android Wear could quite possibly power them. However, after using the G Watch for an extended amount of time, it seems to us that neither the smartwatch, nor the OS have...

LG G Watch Giveaway


Last month's Google IO saw the official introduction of Google's Android Wear as well as the first two devices to run the new wearable OS. Among those was LG's G Watch, a Snapdragon 400 (4 x ARM Cortex A7) based Android Wear device with a 1.65" IPS...

Easy to attach wristband ; Convenient charging cradle ; It runs Android Wear

More expensive than slightly better competition ; Impossible to read in sunlight ; Extremely boring industrial design ; Poor battery life

Android Wear is a solid step forward in smartwatch interface design, but LG's implementation is uninspired and costs $30 more than Samsung's very similar hardware.

Review: LG G Watch


Rather than free you from your smartphone dependence, LG's new G Watch ends up being even more of a distraction.

Having Google Now on your wrist is truly useful and convenient. Charging cradle is easy to use. Tracks steps

The hardware is bulky and uncomfortable. Features are limited—for now. Notifications are often delivered with a significant (5-minute-plus) delay. Battery lasts barely a day. The constant vibrating of new notifications is really just the worst thing ever

LG G Watch


The LG G Watch is one of the first ways to get Android Wear, but it costs more and does less than the Samsung Gear Live.

Smart Google Now functionality. Larger text than Gear Live. Works with standard watchbands.

More expensive and fewer features than the Gear Live. Short battery life. No physical buttons. Android Wear lacks a Back button. Few apps available. Bulky.

The G Watch is one of the first devices to run Android Wear, which I had very high hopes for. In essence, Android Wear is about putting smartphone notifications and Google Now functionality on your wrist, and I'll get to how that works shortly. First,...

Android Wear review: Taking smartwatches in the right direction


When I was a tiny tot, I watched Knight Rider and pretended I was Michael Knight, talking to KITT on my watch. Yet now that there are real-life watches

Performs well ; Swappable wristbands ; Charging cradle is easy to use ; Water-resistant ; Easier to read in sunlight than competition

More expensive than the Gear Live ; Display has lower resolution than competition ; Horrible battery life ; Limited to newer Android devices ; Unattractive design

It's not much of a looker, but the LG G Watch is a respectable Android Wear device. Its battery life is slightly better than the Samsung Gear Live, but it's also more expensive and doesn't offer as nice a display.
