What customers say about "Key Specs"
LG Watch Style (LGW270.AUSATN) Smartwatch with Android Wear 2.0 - Titanium - US Version
  • Stylish watch, battery capacity sufficient for a full day. Very clear display.
  • It looks great with the original band and extra band.
  • I did change out the band for a rose gold mesh band, but it was very easy to change and looks great.
  • Newest google android wear os for better security and more features
  • The band is terrible. Hard to put on and the holes are an inconvenient distance apart so the watch is either too tight or too loose.
LG Watch Sport Unlocked GSM (Silver/Titan)
  • Far better than many reviews give it credit for. First update greatly improved battery life. Band is comfortable to wear even while sleeping.
  • Although slightly bulky at first, I've gotten used to the size and the weight.
  • It feels great in the hand and the display is just phenomenal.
  • Some people may have a problem with the bulky width of the watch. It's a very large watch so people with small wrists may have a problem wearing it.
  • The band sucks. It is so difficult to slide the the little band thing that holds down the part of the band with holes.
  • You cannot change wrist band because the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth antenna is located in the wrist band.

What customers say about "Display"
LG Watch Style (LGW270.AUSATN) Smartwatch with Android Wear 2.0 - Titanium - US Version
  • The display animations run smooth. The picture is crisp and vivid.
  • I like that the display doesn't have the "flat tire" at the bottom.
  • Bright display..No problem even u are under direct sunlight
  • Screen is somewhat buggy (for some if not all watch faces i found myself in the settings for hte watch face every 5 min no matter the watch face)
  • I'm left handed and wear it on my right arm. I wish there was an option to flip the display so that the button was toward my hand.
LG Watch Sport Unlocked GSM (Silver/Titan)
  • The display is vivid and clear and although not as big as the Gear S it works. I can see pictures and video fine, apps work well and look great.
  • Keep the always on display and like an Apple Watch the screen only displays when you raise it up to your face. This makes battery life much better.
  • This is an amazing watch. I like the huge display. I like the digital crown on the side.
  • Screen is very crisp and clear.
  • The display is difficult to read outside in sunlight.

What customers say about "Features"
LG Watch Style (LGW270.AUSATN) Smartwatch with Android Wear 2.0 - Titanium - US Version
  • Android Wear 2.0 with playstore, better interface than apple watch, and a big step above android wear 1.0
  • The watch has fair build quality, Leather Band felt very rough and isn't much flexible.
  • Looks pretty and not that big with a watch face. Especially like the feature that it detects movement when doing a strength training using Google fit app.
  • Connectivity issues (at times the watch would forget the phone and ask to reconnect, never had this issue with my older watches)
  • It does NOT have a heart rate monitor sensor
  • It has been a great accessory but would have been nice to include features like android pay.
LG Watch Sport Unlocked GSM (Silver/Titan)
  • The Google assistant is amazing, just saying OK Google activates it and then your on your way to searching the web, scheduling calendar events, starting a workout, making a call or text, listening to music, etc.
  • The apps available on Wear OS with the play store are almost limitless and more are added every couple of days, I'm constantly getting notifications that the os has updated.
  • Best smart watched I've owned! love the style and functionality. +++ Heart rate monitor, calling features with and without sim
  • It has LTE! I am using a T-Mobile DIGITS cloned SIM so I get my text messages and phone calls to my main number no matter where my actual cell phone located.
  • It is thick, very thick. I can't button my dress shirts when wearing this. This thing could probably stop a bullet like Wonder Woman's wrist bands...
  • The OS response is a little slow, but I expect it in such a compact device.
  • Does not support some older watch faces and apps. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get them in the near future.

What customers say about "Power"
LG Watch Style (LGW270.AUSATN) Smartwatch with Android Wear 2.0 - Titanium - US Version
  • Battery life is very poor (*for me with screen off battery lasted 9hours older watches last 2-3 days)
  • The battery life doesn't last a full day.
  • The battery life in this device was in my opinion, horrible. Never lasted an entire day even on airplane mode.
  • The battery doesn’t last more than 6 hours. That’s not even with constant use.
  • This is one of the better looking / functioning smartwatches out there, but the battery life is really not that great.
LG Watch Sport Unlocked GSM (Silver/Titan)
  • The good news is, battery life can be extended by downloading the latest Andriod Wear Software Update and disabling "The Always On Screen Display".
  • I'm shocked that the battery actually lasts and entire day (for me). I bought an extra charger for work, but have not needed it.
  • Use this more than i thought! battery life is great. could probably get more than a day.
  • My only major issue with this watch is the battery life. It's advanced features like cellular service, GPS and fitness tracking, can cause the battery to drain quickly.
  • Battery life is very short when on wifi, phone, gps, etc but it also lasts all day with only one radio on and I can turn others off/on as needed. I keep a charger at work and bedside so it's not run out of gas on me yet.
