LG Watch Urbane LTE Hands-On Review

 

LG announced its brand new gorgeous LG Watch Urbane LTE a few days ago and today we had the opportunity to get our hands on it. Unlike its sibling the LG Watch Urbane, this model does not run Andro...

LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE review: Android Wear goes cellular

 

Smartwatches that don't actually need a smartphone to function seem poised to be the next hot thing in wearables. Samsung's already attempted this with a couple of its Gear watches — most recently...

It can work if you leave your phone at home ; Sharp display ; Snappy performance

Larger and heavier than other watches ; Monthly service cost ; Standalone functions very limited for now

LG Watch Urbane

 

The LG Watch Urbane is the most luxuriously crafted Android Wear smartwatch yet, but it's a tough sell for the price.

Classic design. Sharp screen.

Expensive. Bulky. Stiff leather strap. Android Wear still underwhelms despite 5.1 update.

Conclusions With the Apple Watch now available, our standards for smartwatches have increased. Google's Android Wear OS is in the best position to offer an alternative to Apple's iOS-centric juggernaut, but the LG Watch Urbane, even with its upgraded...

LG Watch Urbane review:

 

Now that the Apple Watch is here, what's Google going to do for Android Wear, Act 2? We may get a more detailed roadmap at Google's big I/O developer conference later this month, but in the meantime, the LG Watch Urbane just might be the raising of the...

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.

LG Watch Urbane ( silver)

 

Android Wear smartwatches have been around for almost a year. Google's own software platform for watches has birthed over half a dozen different types already; from Sony, Asus, LG, Motorola and Samsung. The LG Watch Urbane is LG's third Android Wear...

LG Watch Urbane Review

 

Smartwatches weren't going to be as big a deal as smartphones were (and still are) — not even close. Instead, their function would be auxiliary at best. For the time being, this is a more than fair assessment — some would, for example, go as far as...

Very attractive, classic design ; Well put together ; Water- and dust-resistant (IP67) ; Interchangeable, 22 mm straps ; Industry-leading battery life ; Packs the latest version of Android Wear

Its size and design may hold little appeal to women ; Occasional software crashes and slowdowns

In our mind, out of all the smartwatch makers on the market right now, LG is one of very few that seems to get it — a smartwatch needs to blend in, and not stand out, in order for people to consider purchasing it. It also needs to be well-designed,...

LG Watch Urbane review: Android Wear goes premium

 

The LG Watch Urbane is the first Android Wear watch on the market following the much-hyped launch of the Apple Watch. How does it stack up against Apple's offering, and Android Wear in general? As successor to the circular LG G Watch R, but with a more...

Today's best Android smartwatch display ; Comes with the latest version of Android Wear ; Good battery life

Expensive ; Bulky ; Not much of an upgrade over the LG G Watch R

The LG Watch Urbane is, fundamentally, a great Android Wear watch which is still not a great product. It’s nicer than the Moto 360, but it comes at a much higher price, and even given slight improvements, it’s still not enough to justify the purchase yet.

LG Watch Urbane LTE review - the next-gen smartwatch today [hands-on]

 

We've just taken a look at LG's new wearable, the LG Watch Urbane LTE. It's very similar on the surface to the LG Watch Urbane, but with one big difference: it's based on the LG Wearable Platform and not Android Wear. To see just how different this...

The LG Watch Urbane LTE is striking for several reasons: its chunky classic styling, its standalone capabilities and its brand new wearable interface. Whether the world outside South Korea will see the watch is something we’re looking forward to...

LG Watch Urbane LTE review

 

Bigger, chunkier, no Android in sight

Nice build ; Fully featured

Chunky size ; Confusing interface

A nicely-designed watch but one that still needs some work to make it a real contender in the smartwatch arena.

LG Watch Urbane review

 

Is the LG Watch Urbane the best Android Wear smartwatch yet?

There's a lot to like about the LG Watch Urbane with its handy Wi-Fi connectivity and the welcome new version of Android Wear. Since it's essentially the same device as the G Watch R in terms of hardware, your purchase really hinges on the design. It...
