I still look back to the day that Android Wear debuted as the one that I finally took wearable devices seriously.

I found myself no longer enjoying the ecosystem I had come to love, and looking into other options.

This comparison will take an in-depth look at these two new smartwatches so that you can decide if you would rather have a feature-packed smartwatch that tends to be on the bulkier side or an elegant and slim device that doesn’t do much more than the basics…

With the release of Android Wear 2.0, Google and LG announced two new smartwatches: the LG Watch Style and Watch Sport. While the Sport features LTE, NFC, GPS, and a heart rate sensor, the Style is a simplified wearable that only does the basics — but also looks more like a traditional analog watch…
