Engadget Review

LG’s Watch Sport is the more impressive of the two smartwatches launching with Android Wear 2.0, and for the most part it’s a very respectable showing. Beyond the seriously snappy performance, the big Android Wear update brings a load of design tweaks and new features that the platform has needed for a long time. While not perfect, the software helps soften some of the watch’s shortcomings: the body will be too chunky for some, and we wish the battery lasted much longer. Still, the screen works well, the new rotating crown is generally very handy and there’s very little lag to be found. If you can look past those issues, there’s plenty to like about the package overall… though it probably won’t be long before another company crafts another Wear 2.0 that outshines this one.
