Engadget Review

The Watch Urbane is LG's best stab at an Android Wear smartwatch to date, and those of you with beefy wrists will especially enjoy its broad, slab-like construction, not to mention its mostly premium look. Thing is, the best parts of the Urbane experience are Google's own software improvements, which will eventually trickle down into other compatible Wear devices in short order.

Pros
  • Improved low-power watch faces
  • First to get Google's Android Wear improvements
  • Solid battery life
  • Smooth performance
Cons
  • Clumsy, ostentatious design
  • It's the most expensive Wear watch
  • No ambient light sensor
