LG Watch Sport Stories April 30

We’re finally coming up on the release of a Google-branded smartwatch, with the tsunami of leaks to prove it. It’s been years that we’ve been waiting for this, but 2022 isn’t the first time Google tried to release a smartwatch. Years ago, Google planned to release what we now know as the LG Watch Style and Watch Sport as its first Wear OS “flagships,” as the “Pixel Watch.”

Thank goodness that didn’t work out.

The Apple Watch Series 5 last week kickstarted a conversation about Google, smartwatches, and how Wear OS fails to be a meaningful competitor. A new report today sheds light on Made by Google’s smartwatch ambition and how Rick Osterloh in 2016 killed Google-branded devices.

Verizon’s variant of the LG Watch Sport has been canceled

The LG Watch Sport was Android Wear 2.0’s flagship when it launched earlier this year, but as is the case with many LTE watches, not everyone had access to it right off the bat. Verizon customers were delayed over a month when the watch was first announced, and now, they won’t be getting it at all.

Along with the release of Android Wear 2.0 this month, Google and LG announced two new smartwatches: the Watch Sport and Watch Style. We recently reviewed both of these smartwatches, and now we want to know if either of them interest you. If not, what other smartwatch (if any) are you interested in potentially picking up?

LG Watch Sport Stories February 20, 2017


I still look back to the day that Android Wear debuted as the one that I finally took wearable devices seriously. I remember getting excited that, finally, someone had gotten a wearable operating system right. However, after its debut, that shine quickly wore off. I found myself no longer enjoying the ecosystem I had come to love, and looking into other options.

Now, it’s 2017, and it’s been almost a year since Android Wear was on my wrist on a daily basis. In the time since, I’ve used a variety of wearables like the Pebble, the Ticwatch, and Samsung’s Gear S3, all while Google worked on Android Wear 2.0 in the background. Now, Android Wear 2.0 is here, and with it, new hardware.

Google partnered with LG for this new hardware, resulting in two new devices: the LG Watch Sport, and the LG Watch Style. For the past several days, I’ve been using the “flagship” of the two, the Watch Sport…

With the launch of Android Wear 2.0, LG and Google announced the Watch Sport and the Watch Style. While both of these watches were designed to show off the newest version of the operating system, only the Watch Sport comes packing LTE connectivity, an NFC chip, a heart rate sensor, and more.

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…

The long-anticipated Google & LG tie-up partner smartwatches have finally hit the physical (and digital) shelves, and now we’ve had a few days to play with and test out the bigger and badder LG Watch Sport in the lead up to our full review. It goes without saying that the Sport is a big watch. It’s the watch that has all the features — bringing you everything that Android Wear 2.0 has to offer — and it’s also the watch that has all the bulk. But there’s more to the story here than just its size…

How to customize the hardware buttons on the LG Watch Sport

One of the physical differences between the more expensive LG Watch Sport and its less expensive brother, the Watch Style, is the addition of two buttons located on either side of the rotating side button.

How to insert a SIM card into your LG Watch Sport [Video]

The LG Watch Sport is one of the first smartwatches to come running Android Wear 2.0. The Sport, unlike the Watch Style, has LTE connectivity built in — meaning you can leave the house and leave your smartphone behind.

To do this, though, you will need to have an active SIM card installed to provide your watch with data…

Just last week, LG and Google launched two new Android Wear smartwatches alongside the launch of Android Wear 2.0, one of which was the LG Watch Sport.

Google and LG announced the LG Watch Style and Watch Sport this morning, and there are plenty of reviews for the new smartwatches already pouring in. We’ve yet to get our hands on units (our reviews are on the way!), but so far it looks like the consensus is about what I expected: There’s lots of new useful features in the latest — albeit delayed — version of Android Wear, but in a variety of ways, these watches don’t show it off as well as they could… expand full story
