LG Watch Sport: too big for health and fitness

Spread the love

The new LG Watch Sport has every sensor and radio you could possibly want — GPS, LTE, heart rate tracking, and more — but the result is a monster smartwatch that won’t fit on every wrist. The Verge’s Lauren Goode reviews it.

    Get a dude to review it and there would be a slightly different opinion. Js.

    Hello, I'm Molly from a company with high-end audio products. I watched your videos. You are so professional and the color and the scenes of the videos always can catch my eyes. Our company has just launched new wireless earbuds. Would you like to experience it? Looking forward to your reply:)

    Hmm…size is a matter! But I had a big wrist! So, thinking of buying one!

  • February 25, 2017 at 3:36 pm

    Thats really ugly.. i had a G watch R that was far superior to this.

    Hey, Awesome review but a barometer is not to track your altitude, thats an altimeter. Barometer is use to measure atmospheric pressure. Like Samsung Gear S3. Too bad strava is not on Samsung yet.

    Does anyone actually looks the video for the watch or only because of Lauren? <3

    I have big wrists and for me I finally have an option in the smartwatch category. there is a reason we.have options. I am praising @google for recongizing an opportunity for guys like me. I could say the exact same thing about an Apple watch for them not making something bigger. 42mm is women size as far as men watches they start 44-46 in high end category. this is mans watch. not for women.

    maybe it was designed for ankle instead of wrist, anyway, this watch is ugly AF.

    If I were her, I'd keep that watch as an anchor. Seriously, I doubt she goes outside on a windy day.

    Can't wait for a nicer version of Android wear 2.0 as this LG watch is ugly

  • February 26, 2017 at 7:08 pm

    Looks great but it is not a chick watch. Not meant for people with small wrists. How about you get someone with larger wrists to see what they think? She seems to me like the kind of woman that goes to a shoe store and buys shoes that don't fit just because they look good and then complain that they don't fit right. This was not the right person to have an opinion on this watch.

  • February 28, 2017 at 9:30 pm

    It's not a useless fancy apple watch. It's a sport watch so not really for wearing it everyday! And sorry if your wrist is tiny but that doesn't make it a bad product ! I might buy it because it can actually replace a phone when doing SPORT

  • March 2, 2017 at 12:15 am

    It doesn't look too big – just thick, and it just looks ugly IMO… The Gear S3 looks sooo much better and it's highly customizable. The AW2 is tempting but I think I'll pass.

    She mentioned that the watch slides up and down her wrist while running. Does she know that means the watch is too loose and would probably not track her heart rate properly? Just saying.

    I was so happy to see a video about this watch that uses a woman's perspective. I regretfully bought this watch from AT&T to replace my Samsung Gear S3 Frontier because I thought that I would prefer Android over Tizen OS. (Still believe I would). Not too long after placing the LG on my wrist, I took it off and went back to my Gear. They pretty much do the same thing, and have the same features, but the Gear is a better fit. It would be a perfect watch if only Samsung included the Android Wear OS.

    why use smartwatches for fitness? it's ridiculous

  • September 23, 2017 at 1:49 am

    It's fine. Seriously, I have one and the design is not an issue at all. It is only slightly more bulky than my TAG, and while I understand it's probably not the best watch for someone who has a wrist and arm as small as this person, if you're a guy or a not-skinny (like this person, they are very skinny) woman, you're probably ok. Her biggest gripe is the design, but if you're a guy, don't worry; it's a good watch.

  • September 26, 2017 at 12:29 am

    you cant design something for everyone, I don't see anything wrong with a company releasing a product and tailoring it to a select market because they need to… There's no other way to fit all that stuff inside a smaller watch, that is why they released the style as well, but they wanted a flagship that could do everything and it needed to be big so they made it look masculine because they knew males would be the predominant ones wearing it due to it's size.. I say cudos for that. Complaining about it's size is like buying a gaming laptop instead of an ultrabook and complaining about it's size.

  • September 27, 2017 at 4:28 am

    Barometer for altitude ?? are you serious ?

  • December 16, 2017 at 12:35 am

    Nobody wants a tv on their wrist! lol I have small wrists too so I think Apple with the Apple Watch is the only company that cares about us small wristed people. I like Apple more anyway so it works out. Oddly though, I have small wrists, but big hands. looks a little awkward.

    Guess Connect Watch has a good design and runs Android 2.0
