LG G Watch 60 Second Review

LG_G_WatchfEarlier this week I published a full review of the LG G Watch and the Android Wear software found on it.

The G Watch is the next generation of Smartwatch that is capable of becoming quite something given time for apps and android wear extensions to become available.

If you missed the review you can read  it here.

If you are short of time or want to know only about the watch itself rather than the software so much, why not take a look at the following video which summaries the main positives and negatives in 60 seconds.

    One flaw with the LG G Watch is that you have to have a device that runs at least 4.3 and I am sure that you will be more than aware that LG seem to be lagging behind with up-dating their flag ship mobile phones! I have the G Flex and cannot purchase (or wont) this smart watch until I can actually use it with an LG phone 😉

      Yes that is an issue for some John, although it is primarily Google’s ‘fault’. The compatibility for Android Wear was introduced in Android 4.3, as Wear was only officially announced earlier this year and unfortunately it isn’t a retroactive thing.
      I have read that LG are working on updates for all their current devices, the Flex included. I think the extended timeframe is due to them scrapping the work they’ve done on 4.3 and now jumping to 4.4 for all devices.
      Hopefully we should see this roll out to the Flex, G2, G2 Mini and other LG handsets in the next couple of months
