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...

Google has finally revealed its latest Android Wear 2.0 operating system to all, and with it comes two new watches to show it off to its fullest: The LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style.

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?

Is this the greatest Android Wear watch of them all?

LG Watch Sport review

 

Google's Android smartphone for your wrist

Doesn’t require phone tethering ; Able to track strength training ; Appealing design despite big size

Battery life falls short ; Missing some major apps ; Phone calls (US only) require a SIM card

The LG Watch Sport is the brawny and brainy smartwatch that’s able to keep up with all of your gym workouts, and smart enough to make calls and use Google Assistant with or without your phone in tow. At launch it had the best specs of any Google watch...

LG Watch Sport review

 

The LG Watch Sport is Google's star of the Android Wear 2.0 show. But will stuffing it full of features come back to bite it and its battery life? Find out what we think in our LG Watch Sport review.

If you are definitely going to be able to charge it every night and you don’t mind paying for the LTE functionality you may not be able to use, then the LG Watch Sport is one of the best Android smartwatches ever made.

LG Watch Sport isn't the superhero watch Android Wear 2.0 needs

 

Sure, it's GPS, phone and watch in one massive package, but LG's do-it-all watch involves compromises.

The LG Watch Sport has built-in LTE, GPS and NFC for mobile payments. It features an Apple-like rotating crown for easier navigation, and the Android Wear 2.0 software is more user-friendly than its predecessor.

It is big, bulky and uncomfortable to wear. The straps aren't interchangeable, and the battery doesn't last a full day. Water resistant but not swimproof.

The LG Watch Sport has tons of features, but it isn't the great all-in-one Android Wear watch-phone we were hoping for.
