LG Watch Sport Review: Android Wear at its chunky best

27

When Google radically redesigned Android Wear with version 2.0, it partnered with LG to show off the changes with LG Watch and Watch Sport. The latter was the more powerful model, with a heart rate sensor, GPS, and LTE capability. Still, it was met with somewhat mixed reviews thanks to some early bugs and performance quirks and its $ 350 price. But several months after launch, bugs fixed and street price lowered, it’s closer to achieving its original promise.

First things first: The Watch Sport is chunky. If you need a slim watch than can fit under a tight sleeve cuff, this isn’t the device for you. You also have little room for customization because the device’s components extend into the wrist strap. You only get to choose between a blue and grey anodized casing.
