Smartwatches have blossomed into the public’s consciousness for just more than a year now, so there’s not much companies who are truly experienced in this industry. LG, on the other hand, has produced 3 different smartwatches in just a span of one year. But did their experience in the smartwatch industry paid them dividends? Well, you’ll find out as we review its LG Watch Urbane.

The LG Watch Urbaneis the company’s third smartwatch. It’s a big improvement from their first and second smartwatches which both lack design aesthetics. This time around, the company focused on giving the LG Watch Urbane a more polished look to make it stand above its competition. And it did! The Watch Urbane is LG’s best-looking smartwatch to date. It’s available in silver and gold color options. The timepiece is indeed fashionable no matter which color you choose (but the gold color is preferably recommended for a more premium look). The watch might be a bit bulky but it’s not a major concern because it still comfortable to wear on the wrist.

Performance-wise, the LG Watch Urbane is passable. It doesn’t have a lot of functionalities to boast but it does come with a new Android Wear OS which Google says has improved a lot. It’s got a heart-rate sensor on its back as well as an accelerometer, gyro, and a proximity sensor. There’s the always-on display, the hands-free functionalities, and Wi-Fi that you’ll like. Unfortunately, the watch interface suffers from a number of bugs which is a bit frustrating at times. You’ll find yourself rebooting it a couple of times even though you are only switching through various watch faces. Here’s hoping that a future software update will fix the crashes and bugs. There’s a good news though, its battery life is good.

Product Features:

  • Latest Android Wear OS
  • Hands-free functionalities
  • Always-on display
  • Wi-Fi
  • IP67 rating
  • P-OLED touchscreen

Pros:

  • Good battery life that can last for up to days.
  • Classic, fashionable design especially the gold color option.
  • Compatible with Android and iOS.
  • Display is good.

Cons:

  • A bit bulky for people with small wrists.
  • Suffers from bugs and crashes.
  • Rather expensive.

Summary:

The LG Watch Urbane is a beautiful smartwatch but it suffers from annoying bugs and crashes which makes it a bit disappointing considering its looks. But that is not to say that it’s not worth your money. Since it was first released the watch has been subjected to a lot of price cuts so you can afford it easily. If looks is the first you want from a smartwatch, the LG Watch Urbane is worth buying for.
