LG Watch Sport (Android Wear 2.0) review


The Watch Sport is a good smartwatch -- mostly thanks to Android Wear.

Software is simpler, more functional ; Gorgeous display, minimal design ; Android Pay on a smartwatch is handy ; Customizable physical buttons ; GPS allows for more stand-alone use

Abysmal battery life ; Thick and bulky ; Needs more app support ; Uncomfortable, unreplaceable strap

The LG Watch Sport is a good smartwatch, mostly thanks to Android Wear. If you’re interested, go to an AT&T store to see how it fits your wrist first, as that can make or break your decision.

LG Watch Sport review: Where software steals the show


LG's Watch Sport is the more impressive of the two smartwatches launching with Android Wear 2.0, and for the most part it's a very respectable showing. Beyond the seriously snappy performance, the big Android Wear update brings a load of design tweaks...

Android Wear 2.0 is a big improvement ; Mostly excellent performance ; Rotating crown button works well ; IP68 water resistance

Thick, sometimes cumbersome design ; Battery life could be better ; Android Wear feels inconsistent in places

It's rare that I find myself enjoying a device's software more than its hardware, but here I am. Don't get me wrong, not much about the Watch Sport as a package of parts is definitively bad. If you don't mind the lackluster battery and thick body, it's...

LG Watch Sport


The LG Watch Sport has a built-in cellular modem to stand apart from your smartphone, but that doesn't help it stand apart from a crowd of smartwatches that offer more for your money.

Built-in cellular modem. Accurate step and heart rate monitoring. Convenient dial.

Expensive. Heavy and bulky. Can't swap straps. Difficult to pair with iPhones. No cellular support for Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon.

The LG Watch Sport is a step in the right direction toward a fully standalone smartwatch, but you have to make a lot of sacrifices in style, practicality, and most importantly, comfort. That's a lot to ask for $350, especially since you need to shell...

Android Wear 2.0 review: Google's second swing at smartwatches


Sharp, bright display ; Packed with features ; Simpler interface ; Useful buttons

Unpredictable battery life ; Large dimensions ; Uncomfortable strap ; Buggy software

Are Android Wear 2.0 and two new watches from LG enough to get you to care about smartwatches?

LG Watch Sport Review: Not the best start for Android Wear 2.0


Google recently launched Android Wear 2.0, an operating system for its smart watches. The entire OS has been refined and revamped.

One of the first devices to launch with Android Wear 2.0. ; A good looking screen.

Horrible battery life. ; Looks silly on small wrists. ; Android Wear 2.0 doesn't feel finished.

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 Sport and Watch Style review


Let's talk about one of the first smartwatches that bring Android Wear 2.0 to the masses. This is a review of the LG Watch Sport and the LG Watch Style.

Sporty design includes extra buttons and more features ; Display is large, works very well ; Rotating dial is a wonderful addition to it and Wear 2.0 ; IP68 rating makes it depth resistant ; Android Pay support ; Cellular network capable ; Wear 2.0 a...

Body is large, not for everyone ; Watchstraps are fixed, cannot be changed ; Battery life is only decent, requires micromanaging for longevity

LG Watch Sport Review: Packed Full of Goodies, Way Too Big


In our LG Watch Sport review, we look at a watch packed full of goodies (NFC and LTE), but one that is huge and doesn't last long.

LG Watch Sport review: The right smartwatch for the wrong audience


Google and LG set out to build a pair of watches to launch Android Wear 2.0. What resulted were two wildly divergent products that make no attempt to hit

Display ; Hands down the best display on any Android Wear device, and possibly better than any smartwatch on the market. ; Performance ; Animations are smooth and apps run extremely fast. ; Design ; Compared to other ; sports watches ; , it looks...

Design (again) ; Compared to regular watches, and even smartwatches, this one is completely lacking in character. ; Size ; Thickness is a big hurdle and rules out a lot of potential customers. ; Battery life ; Even with the most conservative settings,...

The LG Watch Sport actually has some enticing qualities to it. LG and Google delivered a watch that works great, has a wonderful screen, every feature you could want (short of a spy camera... I guess), and legitimately useful hardware controls. Then...
