LG G Watch specs


i think the amoled screen on the gear makes up for the smaller battery size. especially with a dark clock

It's on the large side for any woman that likes a small watch, but I'd say it's actually on the small to medium size for most men. It's smaller than my Swiss Army watch which I always thought was relatively small for a men's watch, at least going by what I see other men wearing. Battery life is gonna be a serious issue for ultra small lady's sized watches tho.

that would make sense but this watch does not have sensors to track sleeping patterns...... your argument is invalid

After watching the keynote my enthusiasm took a bit of a dive regarding these watches. The screen on the g watch looked horrible and they seemed to be a little desperate to find a use case


For anyone else already wearing the original Pebble, this thing is actually smaller in both thickness and height, and only 2mm wider than the Pebble. So if you're used to the Pebble, it's great to know that this is almost exactly the same size.

However, it's a full 25g heavier than the Pebble. How much heavier it feels is obviously a matter of opinion...we'll have to wait and see what people think of the extra weight.

You can't really compare battery life on an e-ink screen vs a normal LCD. That's like saying a Kindle is better because it has way better battery life than the Kindle Fire HDX.

As far as weight, people like weight in normal watches, it's associated with build quality. When a watch is too light, it can feel cheap.

Is that really a surprise, given the features and capability? It's like comparing a smartphone to a feature phone.

I'm not trying to knock the Pebble, I was actually really close to buying one a few months ago. And if the pebble works for you, great! Just like flip-phones still work for a lot of people out there. But you can't really deny that Android Wear has more features.

nice comment, that's good to know, the pebble doesn't feel very big to me and it's also super light so the g watch could definitely fit the bill. too bad we probably won't know about the 360 pricing for a while yet, going to make not buying the g watch a tough decision.

The specs look good but this tiny battery and "always-on" stuff will get depleted every day (or even faster) which is unacceptable. Was already annoying enough to keep the current portables (laptop/tablet/smartphone/spare smartphone) always hooked to power outlet every day, now it's another one...

Surprised the LG is actually thicker than the Samsung. I had the original gear and it was pretty thick. Guess samsung slimmed this new one down.

The white one looks quite smart, probably a bit too big for me and I think I'd struggle to find any real day to day use for it, or any wearable for that matter.

Standby time? Interested to hear how long it can go between charges. But to be honest, I'm holding out for Moto 360.

Is there a camera? What about the ability to make/recieve calls?
If those aren't included with the watch then no thank you. I will stick with my Gear & Gear 2.

Those are two features I'm very glad they didn't include. The camera adds size and possibly makes the strap non-replaceable. And seriously, if a picture is worth taking, it's worth spending an extra 1-2 seconds to pull out your smartphone and take a much better quality picture. As for calls, I'd rather not broadcast all my conversations to the people around me, thank you.

After a few month with my Gear 2 - the ability to answer/make calls is one of the most important features for me. I will NEVER buy a watch without it!

Do none of these have a gps so I can use it on my runs without the phone?

Same here... no GPS is a deal breaker. I'll stick with my clunky Garmin FR10 rather than having to take the watch + phone on a run..

It is not MADE to be used by itself. It is made to be used with a smartphone, which has gps on it.

I'm tired of people saying that it doesn't have features that your smartphone does have. This is used with the phone, so it does not need these features.
