LG G Watch R Review – Little touch better, slightly better





The G Watch R looks like a real watch, and that will appeal to many people. As for finishing and it does not boost it with a classic bell. The 1.3 “-oled screen looks nice and is easy to read, and the battery life is longer than that of many competitors. The basic functionality works well and fast, and it’s convenient that notifications and Google Now cards are forwarded from your Android phone. The operating system is in some respects, however, cumbersome and a part of the functionality, such as voice commands, only works in English.

Android Wear can be very useful
Beautiful screen
Relatively good battery life


Voice commands are not in Dutch
Relatively expensive
Android Wear sometimes cumbersome

In the Gear Live smart watch Samsung we saw a OLED screen looks a smart watch much nicer than an LCD, because the deep blacks and high contrast. The Moto 360 convinced us then make a round screen that looks more impressive than a square. LG combines both aspects in its latest smart watch: the LG G Watch R.

The G Watch R LG is already the second Android-Wear watch. In July, the Korean manufacturer has been with the G Watch, the first watch with Android Wear. G Watch which was a simple, angular, black box, clearly meant as a first attempt, where the design was less important than the hardware and functionality. Watch the G R is reversed; what’s under the hood is the same as other smart watches and the company is clearly focused on the design.

Of all Android Wear smart watches that we have tested so far, the G Watch R is the watch that looks most like a classic divers watch. In addition, this is the first that is provided with a round OLED screen. Add the fact that the battery life according to LG is better than that of all competitors and the idea arises that make it the best Android Wear watch can be so far. Whether that is true, you read in this review.
