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. (more…)
The Watch Sport from LG went up for sale last Friday and it has now arrived at the DL offices. Before we can provide you with a complete review, though, we are obligated by DL law to provide you with an unboxing. No, it’s not an actual law, I made that up, but we do very much enjoy unboxing things. (more…)
As of this morning, AT&T appears to have the watch available and in-stock, maybe even for in-store pick-up. To buy from AT&T, I’m currently seeing options of $249.99 on a 2-year contract or $349.99 with no contract. They were also supposed to offer a $17.50 per month/20-month installment plan option, which could be there for current customers, I’m just not seeing it on my end. (more…)
I know that Google announced LG’s new Android Wear smartwatches hours ago and that most of you don’t seem interested in either, but we thought you might at least like to look at the official specs for each. Below, you’ll find the table we put together for all of the big device launches to break it all down for you in the simplest terms.
As a recap, the LG Watch Sport is the bigger of the two with the extra big specs list. It has a 1.38-inch circular POLED display, Snapdragon Wear processor, 768MB RAM, 4GB storage, LTE, NFC, GPS, heart rate sensor, three buttons, Android Wear 2.0, and a big ass 45mm case. It’s made of brushed 316L steel and comes in blue or titanium. (more…)
We have two new smartwatches from LG hitting the market this week, the Watch Sport and Watch Style. Both come with Android Wear 2.0, but each carries quite a different design — one is more sporty (hence the Sport name), while one is, forgive my choice of words, but generic looking.
The Sport is rather large, featuring a 1.38″ Circle POLED display with silicone band, while the Watch Style is a tad smaller, measuring in with a 1.2″ Circle POLED display and also coming with a range of different silicone and leather bands. Unlike the Sport, though, users can swap bands very easily on the Style, thanks to Google’s MODE bands.
Both watches feature a Snapdragon Wear processor, with the Sport coming with 768MB of RAM and the Style having 512MB. Battery sizes also differ – Sport features a 430mAh battery and the Style features a 240mAh battery. Also of note, the Sport comes with NFC and LTE connectivity, while the Style does not. A full list of specs can be viewed here.
For price, the Sport will cost you $349 through Google (varies at carrier stores), while the Style is $249.
So, which one are you picking up?
AT&T also confirmed its plans to sell the LG Watch Sport this coming Friday, February 10. Their device is the same as you’ll find anywhere, but it also includes their NumberSync, which allows you to leave your phone at home and still stay connected by “bringing your number with you” on your watch.
At AT&T, the Watch Sport will run $17.50 per month on a 20-month installment plan. If you want a deal, though, you can grab one for just $49.99 if you buy an LG G5 or V20. (more…)
