DEAL: LG Watch Style is Just $179 Right Now at Best Buy ($70-$100 Off)

In our LG Watch Style review, we talked about how the watch’s $250 price tag seemed a bit steep for what you were getting. As solid as the watch may be, the lack of NFC, GPS, or wireless connectivity, made it a hard recommendation. With that said, at $179.99, it’s probably well worth a look.

Best Buy has all three colors of the LG Watch Style priced at $179.99 at the moment. That’s a $70 discount on the silver and black models, plus a $100 discount off the rose gold version. If you want to get into Android Wear, this would be a great opportunity to without breaking the bank.

LG Watch Style Review

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…)

Video: LG Watch Style Unboxing and First Look

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.  (more…)

LG Watch Sport Now Available at Verizon and AT&T, Watch Style at Best Buy (Updated)

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…)

LG Watch Sport and Watch Style Specs (Official)

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…)

Wednesday Poll: Are You Buying the Watch Sport or Watch Style?

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?
