LG G watch
- The watch comes in two colors, black and white, the white one (girly one) has a gold bezel.
- The watch is IP67 rated which means you can shower with it.
- There are no physical buttons on it and the screen is always on, it will dim down slightly when not in use and dim up as you turn the watch towards your face.
- The battery will last for just over a day on normal use.
- There is a charging dock for the watch.
- The wristband is changeable with any 24mm wrist band, but the stock one is pretty comfy.
- The wristband has to be able to fold out though to be able to place the watch in the charging cradle.
There is not a lot a lot of apps for the watch yet but there are more and more coming every day.
All in all it is looking very good even though it is the first version of the android wear. I have used my phone noticeably less during my time with the watch, being able to check things quickly and replying on text messages is a big time saver.
I think the wearable's department has a bright future in hand and i will almost call it a revolution. I will give the LG G watch a 5 on my dice roll.
Why not 6?
- The battery life is not good enough, having to charge the thing everyday is not good enough. Roumors on the yet to be released Moto 360 says it will have battery life of up to 5 to 6 days because it has an OLED display much like the Sony smartwatch 2.
- It does not have wireless charging
- Having to carry around the charging dock is also a hassle.
- The design is more or less like a Casio calculator watch, it is not a beauty
So to round (or square it all up) it all up, if you want an Android wear device and can't wait for the Moto 360, get the G watch!
