LG produces smartwatches as well, have you noticed? Well, nobody would be surprised if you have not. With so much fuss around the Apple Watch and the Gear S, now fueled by the rumors surrounding the release of the Gear A by Korean tech giant Samsung some time at the end of the current year, there is not much room for other names in the field of wearable gadgets anymore.
The smartwatch by LG is called the LG Watch Urbane and the first thing that comes to your mind when you see one is its size. The LG Watch Urbane is a round smartwatch, like the Gear A by Samsung is planned to be, but this one is probably bigger than any smartwatch you have seen by now.
It is run by the Android Wear operating system. Most analysts find that as an advantage, since the operating system by Google has evolved since it was first launched, having added to it some key features that make the smartwatch experience really enjoyable. The watch-free ecosystem now featured by Android Wear and the fact that the voice command system has been improved have contributed that the current version of the operating system by Google has been very well received by most of the tech analysts in connection to the matter.
Still, the fact that not many of you may have heard about the LG Watch Urbane may be justified. One of the biggest advantages of the Apple Watch was that it looked like you would do anything to wear it wherever, whenever you wanted to, no matter the price. Gear S and the upcoming Gear A do not look so bad as well.
However, when it comes to the looks of the LG Watch Urbane, let`s just say that fashion is not the best aspect of the LG smartwatch. It looks like a cheap watch, it is unnecessarily big and the leather band does not help it at all. And even admitting the fact that people`s taste may not make a subject of a discussion, being such a subjective opinion, still the masses share an opinion on the looks of the gadgets. And in this field, the opinion of the masses counts.
Most of the analysts who have reviewed the LG Watch Urbane have concluded that the biggest advantage of the wearable gadget is that it is run by Android Wear. With the recently released version, any Android Wear watch could be worth the money.
