What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Watch. I absolutely love this watch. Some people complain about the size of it. I however think it's the perfect size and it's fantastic in every way possible. I've been nothing but happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great on T-Mobile I have had this watch for a few months now and I love it.. It is pretty awesome when my phone runs out of battery that I can make calls, use "ok google" to search for stuff, get navigation, etc. I have found this watch to be a great reminder/notification device to keep me on top of things while in work mode. The design is simple and clean and everything on it works pretty well. Sometimes it takes a moment for it to connect to the network which can be annoying but that is because its paired with the phone. When it isn't paired with the phone it usually works faster guessing because its not trying to decide which signal to use. Anyway its a great smart watch that IMHO has helped me be more productive and safer while driving or riding my motorcycle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a Waste of My Money I've tried everything to get better battery life and the only way I cam make it through the day is to turn all of the radios off, including LTE which is the primary reason I bought the LG Watch Sport.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Smartwatch I really enjoy this watch. It is my first smartwatch. I have been waiting for years now to get a watch with all these features combined with the new Android 2.0 experience. Despite what others have said, my battery lasts me all day. I have cellular service but keep it turned off when I don't need it. I keep wifi on, bluetooth on, NFC on, location on, gestures off, and tilt to wake on. I also never use the always on feature. I usually don't drop under 25% batter after 18 hours use. LG, I really enjoy the watch faces you provided with this watch. In fact I enjoy them more than almost all 3rd party watch faces available right now (probably because most watch faces don't take advantage of the new Android Wear 2.0 API yet). Even still, I wish you would keep adding more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great watch except for battery Let me start by saying I am still very happy with this purchase. I was only looking for a fitness tracker that had built in GPS, an interval timer for running, and storage for my music. All so I could run and workout at the gym without my phone. This was the closest I could get to that and am fairly happy with all the features. Google Fit works really well and has so much potential and I'm confident they'll continue to enhance it. All that said, the battery life is AWFUL!!!! I went to the gym yesterday at 65% with AOD, Cellular, Wi-Fi and NFC all off. The only thing I was running was BT for my headset, Google Play Music from downloaded music, and Google Fit to track my Weight Training Workout. The phone powered off at 0% battery within the hour. Unacceptable. Why offer these features if you can't even get a full workout in? I love this watch, and will continue to push it to its limits, but LG - you HAVE to do something to manage battery life better on this device.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice phone I bought the watch 5 days ago and recieved it 3 days ago, because the AT&T store was out of them. The watch looks good and works fine. The features are good and there are a few apps that can be added. I would think more apps would come out in the future. The only draw back it the battery. It last about 12 hours when apps are not used to much. The more the apps are uses or calls or texts are made the quicker the battery dies. LG needs to address this issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lg needs to work on it First, you don't find 1 app compatible form LG. Lg needs to make more apps for this watch, like new faces and apps for setting. Second, you don't find no more than 1 accessory beside than charge. how you make a product in this days without no accessory, come LG you need to catch up. However, i like watch because it is well made.
Date published: 2017-05-20
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lg needs to work on it i like the watch, hardware is really good, but software is different history. First, LG need to make their own app for android wear, add more features, like open the camera and take a pic using the watch.**** PLEASE MAKE APP FOR TGE WATCH!!!!!!!!!!!****

Can I buy a SmartWatch in USA and use it in Denmark with the Lte???

Asked by: Tobias jensen
The LG Watch Sport™ - AT&T, Model # W280A is designed to run on AT&T's GSM 850/1900 MHz; LTE Bands 2/4/5. If the carrier in Denmark runs on those same ferquencies and LTE bands, it should work. You will need to check with the carrier in Denmark that you intend to use it with for compatibility. Carriers decide which devices they allow to run on their networks...^IFV

I've had the Watch Sport for a few weeks now, & I'm loving it. But the battery life isn't that good. That battery isn't strong enough to support moderate use of the advanced features on the watch. Was wondering what will be done to correct this issue

Asked by: Jogup

can the lg watch sport work with Sprint?

Asked by: lil bill03
Yes!!...Most people don't know that the AT&T model w280a is compatible with Verizon and Sprint CDMA Networks. I'm currently using my w280a model on Verizon right now. The hardest part is to get Verizon to issue you a SIM card for a non-Verizon product. Verizon will be reluctant to do this, because it's not company policy. I had to go through a long frustrating process, but I was able to get it done.

From other answers it appears this watch is not SIM locked to AT&T. Is that correct?

Asked by: LAgeek
Now in English/Simpler terms...The LG watch sport model W280a is the AT&T model & is intended to used on the AT&T GSM network. But most people dont know that model W280a can also be used on Verizon & Sprint CDMA Networks. I'm currently using my W280a model on Verizon right now. The only problem was getting Verizon to program a SIM Card to be used in a non-Verizon product. Verizon typically doesn't like to do this cause it's not company policy. But I was persistent (but not disrespectful) so I eventually got it done, but it was a long frustrating process.

Do you have to have a SIM card for it to work or can I just buy it and not have the Sims I just want to watch itself I don't want nothing else beside to watch

Asked by: Motokiller
You don't have to use the SIM Card for cellular service if you don't want to (it's an additional monthly cost on your phone bill). Just pay for that watch in full but don't activate the SIM Card. You can still use the watch as a regular smart watch without the cellular service.

How waterproof are we talking here, can I shower with it? I love this little watch!

Asked by: tanas89
The correct answer to this question is nope. It's wet rating just means you can't sweat this watch to death, you can kill it with a shower though. At present only the Pebble smart watch (which ahs been discontinued) and the Apple Watch II are the only 2 for sure swim proof watches. Garmen makes a couple you could shower with too but they're God awful ugly things.
