New smartwatches from LG is a redesign of G Watch R, and now it has become even more like an old-fashioned wristwatches. But is it not time for more new behind the façade?
More clock than this can hardly be a smartwatch.
Right now, the hype for Apple Watch, but it is still unclear when it will be the Swedish release for Apple’s smartwatch. So, so far it is imports from foreign or a Pebble or Andoid-watch that comes to us.
LG has been our favorite smartwatches for kids with G Watch R, impresses by a great oled display, heart rate monitors and by actually does not look like a nerkrympt Ipad on your wrist but, just that, a clock. The charmed us with real case as a sporty wristwatch and a nice leather strap.
Test: LG G Watch R-smart watch with the right feeling
But neither then knew it completely a hundred percent. We commented at the time that the angular design and choice of black surface finish made it still looked a bit plasticky out although the feeling on her arm was flawless.
Entirely according to your wishes
Now, we do not believe it is so that LG has listened to just us, but it almost feels like that. New LG Watch Urbane (they have the most partially missed G: et titles in name) gives us exactly what we asked for. A more soft designed case with stainless steel straight off.
A little thinner and more stripped-down than G Watch R, but still with design as a classic wristwatch – more so than ever. An important part of the experience is the stylish bracelet with seams in leather, stålglänsande buckle and beige interior.
For some reason seen LG’s own product photos Watch Urbane with a matte finish and a black buckle and tongue. We think it actually is even prettier in real life.
This is fantastic and in class with something you’re craving in a urmakares shop Windows. Or maybe did. In the 90s, if you are like myself and it was a tester when you last had a wristwatch. This model has the LG also tossed with a few extra, and extra stylish clock faces. The watch is available in two versions, one with silver Sheen and the other with gold shimmer, and you get with clock faces that match and do these justice.
… But mostly on the surface.
Specification and functionally, it is as far as we can see a G Watch R down to the last component. It’s the same oled screen of p-oled-type with 320 pixels across. It has the same sensors, especially a heart rate monitor, it has the same charging solution with a neat little chubby doll, and same 410 milliamperetimmars battery.
Do not miss: 5 days with Apple Watch-so it feels to use
It also has the same Snapdragon processor that 400 G Watch R. way it is the same as in first LG watch G Watch. One may wonder if it does not come any new and better hardware to stop in a smartwatch, which can maintain performance but draw less power.
New watch features a big new feature, namely the built-in wifi. It can adopt the phone’s log-in details or use the phone to manually input the password. Once logged in do not LG Watch Urbane as much with the connection, there is no browser or other apps that work standalone. On the other hand, it means that it typically takes place via bluetooth, sync to your phone, can continue to occur even if you accidentally drop the bluetooth socket.
Urbane Watch in gold and silver. The latter is the one that we in writing please in Swedish stores.
Although this seems to Watch Urbane draw less power than G Watch R did. Not significantly less, but we get a 10 to 15 per cent longer use out of it than what G Watch R gave us. It is still not much more than a couple of days of use before it needs to be charged, but at least it is an improvement. Wi-Fi is as far as we can see is not active if the standard Bluetooth works, so it draws most of the time.
We’re guessing that it may also have to do with that Watch Urbane is running a newer version of Android Wear. Energy efficiency is one of the things Google said they work with in the updates.
Navigation in the new Android Wear also has become a little smarter than before, with the easier way to launch apps, and a bit less pushy notifikationshantering. Google still has a lot to work with there, especially as what we’ve seen so far of the interface of Apple Watch looks promising.
Evolution. LG’s smartklockor has gone from hideous to acceptable, and have now finally landed on the really smart.
LG Watch Urbane is a face lift of an already really neat smartwatch. Much care has gone into the look and feel, and in this kind of stuff, it is extremely important that not only does it have correct features but also large amounts of style and comfort. It really has the LG managed to do this. However, you may pay almost a thousand extra for the pleasure compared to LG G Watch R, which of course was not ugly either.
For that price, we’d like to have seen even more news under the hood too. The major technical innovation is wifi, and LG are not doing enough with it to right it should feel especially exciting.
