LG G Watch Powered by Android Wear Review

LG G Watch Powered by Android Wear

G Watch Powered by Android Wear gives fast answers to spoken questions.


  • Uses standard 22mm (0.86 inch) strap (easily customized)
  • ‘Always on’ display
  • 400 mAh battery (should last all-day w/o needing a recharge)
  • Certified water & dust resistant (meets strict IP67 requirement)
  • Easy to use magnetic charger

Its got watch-form and function, and you could start a phone call with it, but at the end of the day, LG G Watch is a wrist-worn notification delivery system. Not an overly complicated device, nor a fashion piece – it delivers the Android Wear in a way that makes it easy to become acquainted with it.
LG G Watch ships with a simple rubber strap, but because it makes use of a standard 22mm size, it is easily customized (unlike the Samsung Gear Live).

You charge the G Watch on a magnetic dock that gets its power from a standard USB cable. The magnets help keep the watch in place, but will require that you set it in “just right”. Originally, you couldn’t buy a spare charger for the G Watch, but they are recently available via the Google Play store. How long will that charge last? Reports are a full day (8am – 9pm) with regular use, more if you aren’t constantly checking it.
There are three standard display settings for Android Wear full on, always on, dimmed, and monochrome time only setting, allowing you to modify how the time is displayed (different watch faces), + a mini view of the top Google Now card. As mentioned before, the LG G Watch has been reported to be difficult to read outdoors, so the “full on” will be the best to see in sunny daylight.

LG’s G Watch is water and dust resistant (to IP67 standards) so feel free to wear it in the shower.
