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 review

 

LG's G Watch is one of the first Android Wear smarwatches on the market. How does it compare with its competitors?

Always on display ; Works with many Android phones ; Android Wear

Boxy, ugly design ; Short battery life ; Not terribly useful

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...

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.

LG G Watch

 

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

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

Little remembered fact: LG was way ahead of the smartwatch craze when it launched the Prada Link Bluetooth watch back in 2008. And when Google first announced Android Wear back in March, the LG G Watch seemed genuinely exciting—not quite as stylish as...

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.

LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live review: the first Google watches

 

I've been looking at my phone a lot less recently. Normally, no buzz in my pocket can go un-checked, no news alert or Snapchat unseen. But thanks to these watches I've been wearing, my phone spends a lot more time in my bag. I can just flick my wrist...

Simple to set up and use ; Swappable bands ; Nice set of watchfaces ; It tells the time

Astonishingly bland design ; Weak battery life ; Screen is impossible to see outside ; No power button

LG forgot to put designers on its smartwatch project

LG G Watch Review

 

Diving into a new endeavor with the LG G Watch, LG is looking to get a jump start with Google's new smartwatch platform. Without a doubt, it already has stiff competition against the other smartwatch on the scene – the Samsung Gear Live, which goes on...

Always on Google Now access ; Material design gives the platform a flowy look & feel ; Screen is usable outdoors

Boring design makes it unappealing looking ; Screen has a bland look to it ; It’s more expensive than Samsung’s offering ; Battery delivers a day of usage at the most

LG has a tough road ahead of itself, a sad prediction knowing that the company is trying its darndest to be relevant in this budding segment. Honestly, it’s not too much of a shocking revelation, seeing that its official unveiling a couple weeks ago...

LG G Watch Review

 

We take a an in-depth look at the first of many Android Wear smartwatches to come. Here's our review of the LG G Watch!

Design is simplistic, minimal ; Easy to customize with different watch bands ; Fast charging time ; Android Wear handles plenty very well already including notification cards and voice commands ; Wear should grow quite well

Design might be too minimal for some ; No buttons, only touch inputs ; Difficult to get battery to last more than 2 days ; Some functions still missing, or not perfected, on Android Wear ; Smartwatches still on the fringe, not yet widespread
