LG Watch Style

 

Serious Android Wear 2.0 style. LG Watch Style.

Attractive and slim design ; Slick Android Wear 2.0 performance ; Bright and sharp display

Weak vibration motor ; Average battery life ; No NFC

Inside the LG Watch Style is Qualcomm’s wearable-friendly Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, as seen in the Huawei Watch 2. This is alongside 512MB of RAM, which is shy of the 768MB included in both the Huawei Watch 2 and LG Watch Sport. The standard 4GB...

The LG Watch Style is a very basic Android Wear 2.0 device

 

As one of the two first watches to launch with the long-awaited update to Android Wear, the LG Watch Style is sadly underwhelming. Despite its name, the Style has a bland design and only meets Android Wear 2.0's minimum hardware requirements. On the...

Android Wear 2.0 is faster and easier to use than before ; Rotating dial makes navigating easier ; Handy Play Store integration ; Water resistant

Terrible battery life ; Design isn’t actually stylish ; New Android Wear actions are inconsistent

Ultimately, the LG Watch Style feels more like a proof of concept than a smartwatch for consumers. It shows how well Android Wear 2.0 can perform when Google collaborates with a device maker to make sure new hardware input methods are integrated...

LG Watch Style

 

The chic LG Watch Style fills the space between powerful-but-unattractive smartwatches and analog-style hybrids, but is limited by inconsistent fitness tracking and poor battery life.

Versatile, elegant design. Slim and light. Convenient dial.

Inconsistent fitness tracking in testing. Strap feels cheap. Short battery life.

Ultimately, the LG Watch Style is a decent showcase for Android Wear 2.0 that will appeal to those who want a smartwatch in the body of something that looks a bit more traditional. It's just as elegant as analog-style smartwatches like the Fossil Q...

LG Watch Style review

 

Without much substance this smartwatch struggles to Style it out...

Very light and comfortable ; Runs Android Wear 2.0

Poor battery life ; Very limited features ; No GPS or heart rate sensor

A smart-looking face can’t make up for a disappointing battery life and barebones features

LG Watch Style review: Subtlety over style

 

The LG Watch Style isn't an all-singing, all-dancing smartwatch, but it does its job and it does it well. If you're after a smartwatch that looks like

Subtle and simple design ; Lightweight ; Android Wear 2.0 is fast and responsive ; Waterproofing ; Play Store integration is good

Poor battery life ; Basic functionality with no thrills ; A little toy-like in appearance

The LG Watch Style is a simple but effective smartwatch with good overall performance and a great software experience.

LG Watch Style review

 

A thin, almost no-compromise reintroduction to Android Wear

Devilishly good-looking ; Reasonably priced ; Native app support for iOS and Android

Battery life still disappoints ; Android Wear 2.0 needs more apps, fast ; Missing a must-have hardware feature

As the face of Android Wear 2.0, LG's Watch Style delights with a thin, sophisticated look and a offers a new-found freedom from your phone.

LG Watch Style Review: The Best Way In

 

We review the LG Watch Style, one of two smartwatches developed in partnership with Google to debut Android Wear 2.0.

Slim, elegant design ; Smooth performance ; Affordable

Small screen ; No NFC ; No GPS

If you’re looking for a current-generation Android Wear device, the LG Watch Style is arguably one of the most basic offerings available. Whilst that means fitness fans looking for GPS and a heart-rate sensor will be better served by the likes of the...

LG Watch Style review: LG's stripped back smartwatch

 

The LG Watch Style is one of the first two smartwatches to boast Android Wear 2.0, the major new update to Google's wearable OS. We've spent some time with the Style at Mobile World Congress 2017, so find out what we thought in our LG Watch Style...

The LG Watch Style looks and feels great, and we love Wear 2.0 and the new crown scrolling, but beyond that it’s just too limited given the price. Without NFC, GPS, 4G, or a heart-rate monitor the Style feels overpriced, and you can get more for less...

LG Watch Style review

 

The LG Watch Style is a thin and light smartwatch built in collaboration with Google. It's also one of the first watches to run Android Wear 2.0, Google's revamped smartwatch operating system. Android Wear 2.0 will arrive on a handful of other watches...

The LG Watch Style is slim and has an Apple-like rotating crown for easier navigation. Its Android Wear 2.0 software is more user-friendly than its predecessor.

Its tiny battery doesn't last a full day. There's a limited number of useful apps, no NFC for mobile payments, no speaker, no heart-rate sensor and no GPS.

There are better (and longer-lasting) smartwatches available to go with both Android and iPhones.
