LG Watch Urbane reviewed: The dressiest new smartwatch

 

It's round, it's metal, and it's got the looks. It all comes down to this: is Android Wear good enough?

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 G Watch R review: Wins big on style, falls down on software

 

The LG G Watch R mixes metal, glass and real leather to be the most stylish smartwatch around. Android Wear just isn't up to scratch yet.

With its round design, angular metal frame and selection of gorgeous watch faces, the LG G Watch R is the most attractive Android Wear Smartwatch around. It's battery life isn't bad either.

Final pricing is still unclear. Battery life, while better than Android Wear competitors, still isn't good enough for the average person. The watch's design won't appeal to those who prefer sleek, slim timepieces.

Although its stark design and beautiful face makes this the first smartwatch you might actually be happy to be seen wearing, its Android Wear software has a long way to go before it's anything more than a passing novelty.

LG G Watch review: Not the Google watch we need

 

Android Wear is Google's wrist-worn vision of the future, but LG's smartwatch feels like an early prototype. Read all about it.

The G Watch shows off Android Wear's impressive voice recognition, Android phone connectedness, and potential for future app support. It has solid build quality, is water- and dust-resistant, and the included magnetic charger is easy to use.

A generic-looking design; terrible battery life; a display that doesn't work in bright sunlight; a strange card-based notification system that doesn't always pop info you want; costs more, lacks the heart-rate monitor, and has a slightly weaker display...

The LG G Watch attempts to bring you the future on your wrist, but with its generic design, unimpressive battery life, and unpolished early software, you're better off waiting to see what else is around the bend.

The LG G Watch was not just the first offering from LG that featured Android Wear, it was the first watch to feature Android Wear at all. Packed with a[...]

I never thought I’d get attached to this watch, but since I have been trying it, it has been on my wrist apart from when I sleep. It gets more and more useful, as time goes on, and the various apps that are available help too. Battery life is okay, but...

LG G Watch – Review

 

A watch fundamentally is foolproof, you look at it wanting answers and it duly obliges, although for many years this has been a rather simple transaction. i.e what is the time? It is 5am. Simple. This idea hasn't been played about with for a long time....

Overall I liked the LG G Watch, it certainly has some useful features, yet I feel the hardware is a little compromised. With a poor battery and screen meaning you’ll end up in situations where you just can’t use the watch. I feel that Android Wear is...

LG watchphone

 

It's a watch. It's a phone. It's a watchphone! This is the most obviously futuristic piece of tech that we've seen this year, and what's more, it actually works. But £500 is a lot to stump up for a tech novelty. The good The LG GD910 watchphone is one...

OK, the LG GD910 watchphone will make you look like Dick Tracey. And if you can afford it, hell, why not. But if you want a real phone with hefty features, this most certainly isn’t for you. LG watchphone is tagged with LG Watchphone, watch and phone....

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.
