An Upgrade from my Moto 360 in many ways
Posted by: SynPlex from: on
I've had my Urbane for about 5 days now, and coming from my a Moto 360 they're definitely a few upgrades that justified my purchase beside the fact that it's a Classy/Beautiful looking watch.
Improvement over Moto 360:
-Full Round Display (No flat tire)
-Brighter OLED Display (Richer color and great outdoor clarity)
-Better Battery Life (Moto 360 was about 20 hrs, Urbane is easily 36 hrs)
-Slightly Faster processes (Thx to the newer processor app open quicker)
-Standard 22mm Straps (No chunk removal necessary- Moto 360 bands aren't standard)
--- As long as the watch meets your style you can't go wrong ;-)

Very smooth, and what a battery!
Posted by: dmitry217 from: on
Best android wear device yet. I'm actually getting over 2 days of battery with it. The wrist flicking gestures are very useful when I have my hands full, or I'm biking, or its raining outside and I have to hold my umbrella. I prefer the silver, because I don't have to explain to people that its fake gold. Voice recognition is excellent, and that dial button is useful when you want to turn that display off in a theater. I wish LG will give us more control over what the little dials display on their stock watchface, but there are plenty of them available on the store either way. The band fits well, and has no scratches after a couple weeks of use, so that looks promising. Some people online say its too big, I beg to differ. It looks average sized, I saw a guy on the street wearing one of those really big watches and I laughed, so this watch definitely isn't huge (beware of apple folks playing this card). I've had the Zenwatch (sweet software wise) and the original G watch. Battery is better here (same as the G watch). So, no complaints, easy to use, very enjoyable, and the first to look like a real watch! Kudos, LG. I was considering waiting for the Huawei watch coming out, but after realizing the battery would only be 300mah, I definitely prefer this 410mah battery. Hope this helps, and if its too pricey go and pick up the G watch R... the internals are the same.

So I went from the Apple Watch to this watch and the experience is AMAZING. I am using it with my iPhone and some of the features are limited to me. . . However, it still gets the job done in a traditional style look.
I may switch to android

Best Andriod Wear
Posted by: JonJon1 from: Houston Tx on
So many are wondering if the watch is worth the price. Well at first I was also skeptical and I even went and bought the cheaper Moto360, but the flat tire was a deal breaker. The LG Urbane is awesome and the battery is awesome as well. The voice recognition is also very helpful. I like the different watch faces it comes with. Also the great news is that it connects to wifi and also android will continue to improve the android wear software. I did my research and the best android on the market. Try it out and see why its an awesome and gorgeous watch. I get many compliments and top quality I might add.

One of the best smartwatches
Posted by: ATRivera from: on
I own a Moto 360 watch but as most owners know, it does not have very good battery life. I researched smartwatches and read that this watch has better battery life.
After owning it several months, I agree this smartwatch lasts almost 2 days before recharging. The watch is comfortable and easy to read. I am happy.

I wrote a review about the horrible issue I was having w/the battery dieng quickly & I would like to address this... I found out this morning, that the first day I got the watch (I had to charge this thing 4 times in one day), a lot of my google play music was downloading to the watch (this along with a lot of other downloads and playing w/the new toy was draining the battery and working the devise hard. After this was finished, the battery life was a lot better. I am actually going on hour # 8 today and the battery has dropped from 100% to 76% and this is with streaming music from the watch as well, when my phone was charging. This is a huge improvement from the first day, so i have to assume the downloading was draining the battery so much. I didnt even realize there was music downloading, but it is nice listening from the watch when i cant have my phone on me, while charging. The features of this watch are great and I love the added fitness apps/features. I am currently using the runtastic app and its great. I can start it straight from the watch and it syncs w/my google fitness account. I have not used all fo the features, this is only my second day w/the watch, but I am loving it. I wish i could find and delete my first review. I was worried about the battery being a dud, but apparently i should have waited before posting a review.

My Android Wear Experience
Posted by: surewhynot from: on
I bought my LG Urbane on November 12, so I have been using it for a little less than a month.
They had no display model, so I was pleasantly surprised when I unboxed it at home. I like that it only has one side button, it makes it seem more like a traditional watch. It fits well with formal/office work wear or dressy casual. I bought a Zenwatch2 to use for casual wear, so I could improve the longevity of the Urbane. I let the battery charge to full before I paired and initialized the phone. The Urbane has better voice capture performance over the Zenwatch. It has a pleasantly sharp and bright screen, although I have heard a common complaint being that it does not have an ambient light sensor for setting auto brightness.
I do not use the fitness features. I primarily use the watch as a second screen for my smartphone, intended for catching notifications and phone calls without having to take my phone out of my pocket. This part is really cool and worked /almost/ flawlessly (I did factory reset my Galaxy S6 and both watches two weeks in, after which notifications have been 100%).
I really like being able to NAVIGATE from the watch, it is easy to glance at while driving, very practical. Another huge plus. Always works.
I really like being able to TAKE NOTES and make REMINDERS from the watch using the OK google function, and it works most of the time. In the beginning, there would be times when I would OK Google and find that the watch was not paired to my phone, and I would have to "wake up" my phone and then it would be ready to take commands. After I did factory resets on my devices, it actually works perfectly now.
Watch faces are fun, but I wonder if they were part of the problem before the factory reset (too many watch modules active or something). Really cheap prices (99c - 3$) for a change in the look and customized function of your watch. I use analog watch faces since the housing on the Urbane is so nice. But I have not reinstalled most of the watch faces I purchased since I am not sure if they were part of the problem - not a terrible problem, I picked a few of my favorite for now. I would like to be able to access that library without issue though.
The guts on the Zenwatch and the Urbane are pretty similar, one does not feel particularly faster than the other. The Urbane is in a much nicer housing and display, and is more attractive to use. It fits awkwardly on me but I have fairly slim wrists, so it should fit for most people.
I like where Android Wear and wearable technologies are right now. Apple Watch interface is super cluttered. Android Wear makes navigation easy, keeps the boundaries of the watch's operation simple, and relies on the watchmaker to sell the rest on fit and styling.

classy and functional
Posted by: koolaide22 from: on
This watch is definitely classy yet functional. Great battery life so far, I average about 2-3 days depending if I leave it on at night or not. Emails are easily read and deleted, and responding to text messages with the voice to text is extremely user friendly. It's nice to get all my google calendar notifications on my watch and not have to pull my phone out every time I want to see what's on the agenda for the day. Multiple watch faces available that are all very stylish. Also love the "find my phone" feature built into this watch. Wifi connectivity is fantastic. Super easy user interface, and charges very quickly. This is my first smart watch, and was an early Father's Day present from my wife. I give her Kudos, this watch is phenomenal!

NOt sure if sold on it yet
Posted by: tidewblch from: on
I have been using this watch for about a week now. I am not sure if I love it yet. The functionality is nice but the size is the problem. 46mm is quite large and with the leather band it does not sit nicely on my wrist. I am an average size guy. The weight of it continually makes it want to roll off to the side. Plus accidental contact of the screen turns it on or makes a different screen come up. I downloaded a bunch of watch faces which are cool and make access of some of the features like the daily schedule or weather come up easily which is great but I just don't think I can get past the size/comfort of the device. It makes it easily through a day on a charge. After the first 3-4 days of playing with it I would say I now use it light to moderate usage and by the end of the day I am only about half through the battery. I don't know if putting a steel bracelet on it would have it sit better. I tend to think not. I love the android operating system and even though I use Samsung phones I did not want the Tizen OS. If you can get past the bulkiness of this device it is a great product but not necessary. At 250$ it is a decent deal and the look of it is nice and not cheap like some of the black plastic smart watches out there. Another week or so and I will make the decision whether to keep it or not.

looks nice and provides valuable information
Posted by: metaspherz from: Flint, MI on
I've been looking at reviews for fitness watches until my eyes feel like they're going to fall out. Many watches and fitness bands had the features I wanted and a few were even reasonably priced. But most just plain looked plastic and cheap. Even the highly regarded Apple Watch looked horribly cheap. Then I saw an advert for the LG Urbane watch. WOW! Not only did it look better than 'nice' it actually looked like it deserved to be worn on a man's wrist all the time -- not just during exercise. Best Buy was the only local retailer that had it in stock. So I bought it. It synched easily with my Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The Android Wear app installed quickly and allowed me to choose from dozens of watch faces that offer a variety of useful data. I like the variety and I change the faces to suit my mood and/or needs. I can monitor my sleep patterns by way of graphs on my phone to see how well and how deep I slept. I can even record what I utter during sleep. It counts my daily steps even when I'm walking without my phone. On long walks or bicycle rides I take my phone along so that I monitor my heart rate and I can map my route using GPS. The watch alerts me to new notifications like Facebook, voice mail activity, emails, weather alerts, etc.. I can turn off notifications that I don't want. The watch and phone communicate constantly. There are endless possibilities but the watch doesn't have a microphone so it can't answer phone calls like the Apple Watch. But it costs much less and there are other watches that rival Apple if you want to leave your phone behind and still have cellular functionality. I'd recommend the LG Urbane to anyone who wants a good looking watch with fitness capabilities and more.
