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

 

Are you wearing a smartwatch? Not likely. Despite the fact that modern wrist computers have been available for over three years, most people have not found them to be as desirable or necessary as...

Small, comfortable size ; Interchangeable straps ; Sharp, bright display ; Lower cost

Homely design ; No NFC for Android Pay ; No heart rate monitor ; 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

 

Android Wear 2.0 has finally arrived, and the first two devices to feature it are the LG Watch Sport and Watch Style . Kellen is handling our Watch Style coverage (his review ), so it's my duty to walk you through our time with the Watch Sport.

LG Watch Sport review: Not the watch Android Wear needs right now

 

As the standard bearer for the Android Wear 2.0 launch, LG's sport watch suffers from very narrow appeal.

The full Wear 2.0 feature set ; good battery life ; great fitness tracking

Absolutely gigantic ; not stylish enough for everyday use

It’s a shame that the debut watch to carry the full Wear 2.0 feature has such compromised ergonomics and aesthetics.
