Video: LG Watch Style Unboxing and First Look

lg watch style unboxing

What, you thought we’d unbox the LG Watch Sport and not do the same for the Watch Style? Silly, you.

Because these are the first two Android Wear 2.0 watches and because Google teamed up with LG to make them, they deserve a bit of special attention. While these are no means Nexus-like devices, it is obvious that Google and LG worked closely together to help usher in the era of Android Wear 2.0 with this launch. That’s a big deal. 

To recap, the LG Watch Style is the cheaper-less-equipped of the two. It doesn’t have NFC or LTE or a heart rate monitor, it does have the 1.20-inch circular POLED display, Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, wireless charging, and rotating crown. It also has IP67 dust and water resistance, a stainless steel 42mm case, 240mAh battery, and easily changeable 18mm watch bands (full specs). At $249.99, it costs $100 less than the Watch Sport, but you can see why. It’s missing important pieces of tech, like NFC.

I’ll have much more to say in the full review of the Watch Style, but I think it’s safe to say out of the gate that this watch feels like a missed opportunity for LG and Google. The lack of NFC makes this just another Android Wear watch that does what all of the other Android Wear watches do, instead of a watch that showcases the future of wearables. That’s fine if all you want is a smartwatch that does the basics. That’s not fine if you want more.

  • I was paid 104 thousand bucks last year by working online and I manage to accomplish that by wor­king part time for several hours /daily. I used a money making opportunity I came across online and I am amazed that i earned so much money on the side. It’s very user-friendly and I’m just so grateful that I found out about this. Here is what i do… http://statictab.com/h8vxywm

    Has anybody else noticed that the picture of the watch on the box doesn’t seem to match how it looks in real life? On the box, it seems to have a tiered bezel, but the live pictures seem to indicate a much simpler bezel design. I love how it looks in live pictures, but the official shots have thrown me off! So, am I hallucinating, or what?

    Since Android pay seems like it’s never going to launch in Canada, I can probably buy this and overlook the lack of NFC. Otherwise, this is exactly what I was hoping for. Even the small battery is fine, as long as gets me well through an entire day. My original g watch comes off before bed with around 40 percent battery left, and I have no plans to sleep with a Bluetooth device, so this could be the one. I wonder if they would launch an NFC version in the future though, as they sure have caught a lot of flak for the omission?

    Watch Style vs Watch Sport vs Zenwatch 3 vs Huawei Watch 2 vs Gear S3…

    Google has no direction with AW. It’s so frustrating! Two watches that both miss the mark. It’s sad when FIRST gen watches are designed better.

  • Brandon Sobotta

    Hoping to get one this weekend. Really like it.

  • Ilya Kolodiychik

    Eh. 360 v2 is STILL the best looking watch.

    Any idea when 2.0 will be available on the original Huawei Watch? Anybody? I need it now!

  • john lens

    But, but, I just bought Gear S3!

    • steadymobb

      the better choice

  • Michael Graef

    – Smaller than a typical Third World country.
    – Android Wear 2.0

    – Everything else.

    I wish the band was at least 20mm. 18 just looks too skinny. I have a Pebble Time Round and even that has a 20mm band.

  • Joey Riz

    beat me too it. getting the one for my lady tomorrow lol. Gonna see in the rose gold milanese loop that is available for the huawei watch on amazon will match the rose gold on the LG watch. that is also coming tomorrow.

    • Lucy S.

      My LG Style in rose gold came in yesterday. Very nice women’s watch, but I’m still gonna check out the Swarovski watch that’s being released next month.

  • steadymobb

    This one is more minimalist/meant for women/small wrists. I at least appreciate the fact that you can swap bands unlike the sport.

  • Michael Bassett

    Did LG have a focus group to pick out the ugliest watch band ever?
