The LG Watch Style is a very basic Android Wear 2.0 device

 

As one of the two first watches to launch with the long-awaited update to Android Wear, the LG Watch Style is sadly underwhelming. Despite its name, the Style has a bland design and only meets Android Wear 2.0's minimum hardware requirements. On the...

Android Wear 2.0 is faster and easier to use than before ; Rotating dial makes navigating easier ; Handy Play Store integration ; Water resistant

Terrible battery life ; Design isn’t actually stylish ; New Android Wear actions are inconsistent

Ultimately, the LG Watch Style feels more like a proof of concept than a smartwatch for consumers. It shows how well Android Wear 2.0 can perform when Google collaborates with a device maker to make sure new hardware input methods are integrated...

LG Watch Style

 

The chic LG Watch Style fills the space between powerful-but-unattractive smartwatches and analog-style hybrids, but is limited by inconsistent fitness tracking and poor battery life.

Versatile, elegant design. Slim and light. Convenient dial.

Inconsistent fitness tracking in testing. Strap feels cheap. Short battery life.

Ultimately, the LG Watch Style is a decent showcase for Android Wear 2.0 that will appeal to those who want a smartwatch in the body of something that looks a bit more traditional. It's just as elegant as analog-style smartwatches like the Fossil Q...

LG Watch Style review

 

The LG Watch Style is a thin and light smartwatch built in collaboration with Google. It's also one of the first watches to run Android Wear 2.0, Google's revamped smartwatch operating system. Android Wear 2.0 will arrive on a handful of other watches...

The LG Watch Style is slim and has an Apple-like rotating crown for easier navigation. Its Android Wear 2.0 software is more user-friendly than its predecessor.

Its tiny battery doesn't last a full day. There's a limited number of useful apps, no NFC for mobile payments, no speaker, no heart-rate sensor and no GPS.

There are better (and longer-lasting) smartwatches available to go with both Android and iPhones.

LG Watch Style Review: Lots of Style, Not Enough Substance

 

As its name implies, the LG Watch Style is an attractive smartwatch that you can check your email and smartphone notifications on and send and receive messages from. Since Android users still can't use an Apple Watch — which is our top pick among...

Simple yet attractive look ; Access to Google Assistant ; Audio playback controls

Finicky voice-to-text capability ; Lacks fitness features ; Not enough free apps and watch faces

The LG Watch Style helps introduce Android 2.0 to the masses, but fails to make use of all of the features that the software supports.

LG Watch Style review: A fashion-first wearable that costs too much and does too little

 

The smaller of the two Android Wear 2.0 models released by LG and Google is just too crippled to be taken seriously.

Much better looking than its bigger brother. ; Manages to pack decent battery life into a thin frame.

No NFC for mobile payments. ; No heart-rate sensor or strength training.

The LG Watch Style has good looks, but it doesn't do nearly enough.

LG Watch Style Review

 

MWC is here and that means we should get a new wave of Android Wear devices over the coming weeks that tempt us into parting ways with hundreds of dollars for the honor of being attached at the wrist level to our phones. Ahhh, the future. Before we get...

Unfortunately, at $250, this watch is missing some pretty key features that may turn a number of you off, especially if you already own a smartwatch. On one hand, it doesn’t include NFC, so this won’t be a watch you’ll ever be able to make payments...

LG Watch Style hands-on: the trendy side of Android Wear

 

The LG Watch Style is the smaller and cheaper model of the two new wearables which were released by the South Korean brand. Made official alongside the launch of Android Wear 2.0, it landed at MWC in Barcelona where I had the chance to put it on my...

LG has managed to create an elegant and delicate smartwatch, especially suitable for women. Along with the LG Watch Sport, it can be considered the calling card of Android Wear 2.0, which makes for a good overall user experience, although still not...

LG Watch Style

 

Serious Android Wear 2.0 style. LG Watch Style.

Attractive and slim design ; Slick Android Wear 2.0 performance ; Bright and sharp display

Weak vibration motor ; Average battery life ; No NFC

Inside the LG Watch Style is Qualcomm’s wearable-friendly Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, as seen in the Huawei Watch 2. This is alongside 512MB of RAM, which is shy of the 768MB included in both the Huawei Watch 2 and LG Watch Sport. The standard 4GB...

LG Watch Style review

 

Without much substance this smartwatch struggles to Style it out...

Very light and comfortable ; Runs Android Wear 2.0

Poor battery life ; Very limited features ; No GPS or heart rate sensor

A smart-looking face can’t make up for a disappointing battery life and barebones features
