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.

The quick menu access for the watch apps is nice to use. I have already used find my phone a few times. I use the watch to pay for Starbucks coffee. Googles keep is really handy for shopping lists. You can easily create a list using nothing but your voice to add items to the list. The watch will keep the list on your watches display until you swipe the list away, and you can easily check off each item. Great little watch.
