LG Watch Sport Review: The Best Standalone Fitness Watch? (Video)
As far as battery life is concerned, I actually had to exchange the first Watch Sport I bought at AT&T for another one because even if I never touched the watch it would die in 8 hours. Giving LG the benefit of the doubt and knowing that the Watch Urbane lasted longer than that I ended up swapping it out and have to say that the new one lasts me all day. The battery life isn’t amazing which is probably due to the smaller battery than the Watch Urbane and the sheer power needed to run LTE, but it did last me from waking up to going to sleep and for any gadget I use that’s sort of my main requirement.
Personally, I prefer a watch that looks like a real watch. I like the added functionality that a smartwatch brings for sure, but I’d like to balance that with an aethstetic that doesn’t look any more out of the ordinary than any other watch. So the Watch Sport is a bit too bulky for me and, well, looks like too much like a smartwatch. And a lot of that is due to the bands it has which help facilitate a feature that I, myself, don’t think I’d use that often. But, if you think you’ll use LTE on your watch, and want that waterproofing that I really do like, there’s not a lot of choices honestly. A lot of those choices also happen to be powered by Tizen, Samsung’s OS of choice, and, in my mind, that’s where Android Wear 2.0 wins over TizenOS anyday.
