Free LG Watch Style with all new G6 orders
The LG Watch Style has been touted as the ‘face’ of Android Wear 2.0. Originally released in select markets back in February, it was one of only a handful of watches capable of running the upgraded Wear system.
Reviews were generally positive. Many focused on the lightweight, minimalist design. Design seems to have been one of the biggest hurdles in making smartwatches attractive and LG appear to have manufactured a wearable that ticks the boxes for the widest range of people.
Watch Style features a fully circular 1.2″ P-OLED screen. This technology allows for an always-on screen that uses minimal power. You can interact either via the touch screen or the twisting crown on the right hand side. Charging is handled by an included inductive pad.
Android Wear 2.0 has plenty of upgrades over the original system. One of the most important is the native Google Play store. This allows you to install apps directly to the watch. Previously, apps acted almost as extensions from the phone.
The new Google Assistant is pre-loaded to the Watch Style and accessible from a long press of the crown. Swapping out watch faces is also far easier than before. Notifications and message replies have also been streamlined considerably.
Android Wear 2.0’s release has been a bit of a mixed bag in the UK. Frustratingly, the available range has been lacking from even big box retailers. If you’re looking to upgrade to a 2017 flagship phone, then this new offer presents the perfect chance to test out the newest Android hardware both in mobile and wearable.
