Android Wear at its chunky best

from The Next Web

If you’re in the former camp, it’s little amazing to see how much can be packed into a device this size. $350 is a lot to ask for, and the size automatically rules out some potential users, but the LG Watch Sport is one of the best showcases of Android Wear yet.

The LG Watch Sport was received with mixed reactions, not only by the press, but also by users who rushed to purchase it after the launch earlier this year. While most people like the looks of the watch, though it’s very clear it’s not by any means aimed at women, there are many buyers out there who criticized battery life. And it’s happening for a good reason. The LG Watch Sport provides lower than expected battery life, especially given that it comes equipped with a unit which exceeds 400 mAh. This is quite a hefty battery for a smartwatch, and even so, the LG watch struggles to get you through the day. Truth be told, it’s also a very capable device, and the LTE support and the GPS sensor brings it to its knees.

The ultimate smartwatch is one that doesn't require a phone

from PC Magazine

The LG Watch Sport is a step in the right direction toward a fully standalone smartwatch, but you have to make a lot of sacrifices in style, practicality, and most importantly, comfort.

The LG Watch Sport is a step in the right direction toward a fully standalone smartwatch, but you have to make a lot of sacrifices in style, practicality, and most importantly, comfort. That's a lot to ask for $350, especially since you need to shell an extra $17.50 per month for cellular connectivity. You can get plenty of non-cellular Android Wear watches for less, including the LG Watch Style and the Asus Zenwatch 3, though neither measure up in the fitness tracking department.

The LG Watch Sport is the brawny and brainy smartwatch that’s able to keep up with all of your gym workouts, and smart enough to make calls and use Google Assistant with or without your phone in tow. It has the best specs of any Google watch so far and runs Android Wear 2.0. We’d only like it better if it had longer battery life and more apps.

One sweet smartwatch

from Tech Advisor

If you are definitely going to be able to charge it every night and you don’t mind paying for the LTE functionality you may not be able to use, then the LG Watch Sport is one of the best Android smartwatches ever made.

If LG and Google were hoping the Sport Watch or Android Wear 2.0 would make smartwatches must-have devices, then they’re going to be sorely disappointed. Apart from some cosmetic changes, there’s nothing that makes the watch, or the operating system, compelling enough to wear. The Sport Watch’s battery life is too short, its workout features are too limited and it’s too bulky to be worth your time.

The LG Watch Sport does a lot of things very well. Notifications appear instantly and I for one really enjoyed the on-screen keyboard. Support for Android Pay is a welcome addition, as is the Google Assistant for getting quick information with little effort. Android Wear 2.0 brings a lot of great new features in general and I’m excited to see where it goes from here. But at $349, is it worth it? Hard to say. There are smartwatches out there with better battery life, dedicated activity trackers that are easier on the wrist and sync with more data and third party services, and smartwatches in general still haven’t seen mainstream adoption many were hoping for. LTE support is great, but that will only add to the cost of owning the Watch Sport and is probably not a necessity for most people as even with a smartwatch we still tend to have our smartphones nearby.
