MWC is here and that means we should get a new wave of Android Wear devices over the coming weeks that tempt us into parting ways with hundreds of dollars for the honor of being attached at the wrist level to our phones. Ahhh, the future. Before we get there, though, we wanted to wrap-up our coverage of the first two Android Wear 2.0 devices that LG and Google introduced to us a couple of weeks ago, the Watch Sport and Watch Style.
Tim has already posted his review of the LG Watch Sport, so be sure to check that out. Today, I’ve got the LG Watch Style review for you, a watch that is certainly on the cheaper end when compared to the Watch Sport, but supposedly equally as important. (more…)
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. (more…)
Unlike Kellen, I didn’t flash a Developer Preview of Android Wear 2.0 on one of my smartwatches as they were rolling out. I figured I would just wait for it to publicly launch and experience it with a fresh pair of eyes, and I’m happy I did that. (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…)
And now the LG Watch Sport and Watch Style are available at the Google Store. They appear to be in-stock and ready to ship, with expedited shipping expecting delivery by Monday or Tuesday. Get them orders in! (more…)
LG’s new smartwatches, the Watch Sport and Watch Style, are now up for purchase at Verizon, AT&T, and Best Buy. That’s right, today is February 10!
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…)
Now that Android 2.0 is official and ready to be rolled out to devices and for developers to update their apps with support, a handful have already let us know their plans. Strava and Runkeeper are both receiving updates today with 2.0 support, plus Polar is sharing information on the M600’s impending 2.0 update. (more…)
Fossil is currently hosting a 25% off sale for all of their Android Wear watches, the Q Founder, Q Wander, and Q Marshal, all of which are scheduled to receive the update to Android Wear 2.0 in the near future. At 25% off, you are looking at smartwatches for as little as $123. That’s, um, pretty nuts.
The Q Founder 1.0 is actually on sale right now, but Fossil is including sale items in the 25% off discount, and that’s why you can get one for barely $120. If you want a newer watch, though, the Founder 2.0, Q Wander, and Q Marshal are all 25% off and as low as $206. If you ever wanted to get in on the smartwatch thing, discounts like these are the ones to jump on so that you aren’t too heavily invested if you decide this life ain’t for you. (more…)
