The LG Sport Watch is the latest addition to LG’s ever-growing lineup of Android smartwares. LG was an early innovator of Android Wear and has consistently been building quality devices. They built the very first really good, feature-rich smartwatch with a high-end, fully-integrated LCD screen. They continue to dominate the smartwatch industry in Android-related smartwatches. The LG Sport Watch offers a lot of nice features and functions that make it stand out amongst the crowd.
The first thing that you might notice about the LG Sport Watch is that it looks just like a cell phone. That’s because most all of the watches in the Android Market today look similar. Most of them have round, easy to read, big screens with tiny buttons. It’s really easy to get used to big, bright screens for phones. LG built the watch faces to be easy to read even when the brightness is low. The screen is also crisp and clear, so you can easily view your apps.
With a large, high-quality screen like on the LG Sport Watch, it’s easy to see what you’re doing on the internet or you might get messages while you’re running. You’ll always have your pulse pounding from your heart rate monitor. As we all know, heartbeat monitoring is one of the most important things that you can do to stay healthy. The LG watch faces the trend in that it comes pre-loaded with some of the most popular workout apps like Mio’s Workout app and the Nike Fuel apps. These two apps can help you stay on track with your workouts and ensure that you’re getting the most out of your workouts.
With the accuracy of a quartz movement inside the watch, you won’t have to worry about winding your watch while you work out or in general throughout your day. You can fully unwind from your activities in the comfort of your home or office. Since these two smartwatches come with android ecosystem apps pre-installed, you can use these apps on your phone. You can easily browse the web, check social media sites, update your business news, update your travel schedule, play music, connect with your friends, or anything else you want to do on your phone. In addition to that, both the LG Polar Smartwatch and the LG Sport Watch have superlative water resistance features so you won’t have to worry about wet-ness or getting your workout on the beach or in the rain.
One major complaint that people had with the old LG watches was that they had some issues with lamination in certain areas around the watch. This caused the watch to look a little off-putting and a lot less stylish. However, the new LG Sport Watch models have overcome this problem by including self-healing under-watch lamination, which makes the watch more resistant to water. Aside from this, the new LG watch faces are also scratch-resistant and resistant from impact. These two features alone make the LG watch a favorite among fitness freaks and professional athletes.
The heart rate monitor in the LG Watch comes in the form of a chest strap or an armband watch clip. This is one of the best features of this smartwatch. If you regularly exercise, the chest strap is the most practical because it can be easily connected to your workout gear or PADI shoes without hassle. On the other hand, the armband clip or magnetic clasp watch clips are better options if you don’t like carrying your watch around.
Although the LG Sport Watch comes with many features, it is mostly mediocre when compared to other smartwatches on the market. Its biggest problem lies in its poor battery life. Although it lasts for about an hour, after using it for so long, you will notice that it is already getting low on power. To get over this problem, users are suggested to do their workouts at least three to five times a week to maximize its battery life. In addition, if you are particularly keen to monitor your fitness routines, you should consider getting an app for your LG watch which you can use as an alarm clock or as a tracking device.
Another issue of the LG watch lies in its lack of accuracy. Although the precision of its atomic engine is great, accuracy in outdoor applications is quite poor. For example, the chronograph in the LG Watch failed to register the correct date even after many weeks of use. Also, the battery life is only adequate for non-stop activities. This means that it can be used for a few hours before the need to recharge it again.
