What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good watch! The watch has a lot of cool features and battery life for me has been good. I keep everything on except for LTE, only on when I need it. The only gripe I have is during workouts I am always hitting the crown button that activates Google Assistant. If there was a way to lock the watch during workouts I think this watch would be perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This stand alone phone/watch is incredible! I bought this smart watch as a replacement for my old and tired citizen. I did some research lg, samsung, etc. This watch uses a voice sim wich I took out of my work phone, inserted it, and to my amazement became an instant cell phone. Upon using it as such, the microphone & speaker are amazing as is with lg products, don't have to hold hand anywhere near your mouth you just talk and listen and continue working as I do. For me, after checking around, I don't think there is a comparable product out there at this time. Only drawback at this point is watch band is not interchangeable and battery usage will have to be managed. Otherwise, best money I have spent in a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Smart Watch I bought this watch to pair with my LG V30 phone. After reading many reviews I ordered one from Amazon. At first I had problems setting it up and almost returned it. I gave it one more try and as time went on I was more and more impressed. LG products are like that. My Apple Watch took 3 minutes to setup and is very good but I seem to enjoy the LG more. The screen is big and the way it integrates with the phone is just beautiful. There are a lot of apps and customizations available. I’m still learning what my options are. Great watch faces with “complications” (a term Apple coined for sub-apps you can launch from your home watch face) and two customizable buttons to launch frequently used applications. Bottom line if you spend the time getting to know this watch you’ll be very impressed with what it can do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total disappointment. My last watch was lg g watch one of the basic one and then I upgraded to this lg sport. I'm embarrassed to say this but my old g watch beats this lg sport at almost all the features. Hands down much faster to process things, battery lasts 3 days as compared to sport's 1 day, much better communication with google. Lg sport is so so iffy, sometimes it responds sometimes it does not, some time it will pickup things sometimes it just won't. Total waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great watch at a good price. I have a phone that lacks NFC and now this watch fills that gap. I can pay with my watch and my bank's app is compatible. Cool!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sport is not the right word for this watch I would not refer to this as "sport". In a long run this summer, I witnessed my bluetooth go down, the heart rate monitor go down, then the watch went dead. Upon sending it back, customer service noted there was liquid damage (yes, my sweat) and was told: "With regards to liquid damage, this could be a result of various factors aside from being directly submerged in water like operating below recommended temperature or constant exposure to moisture or highly humid areas can cause the humidity or liquid to condense or gather inside the watch over time and cause power failures. There appears to be marks indicating liquid damage found on the unit’s internal components upon inspection and diagnosis. " So, exposure to "humidity or liquid" can cause water damage. I would replace the word "Sport" with "paperweight", as I have a broken watch that can't be fixed. The battery didn't last more than a day, but that is to be expected with this generation of wearables. And, if you turned on GPS or LTE, it definitely drained it faster. A little big, but also to be expected with where we are in wearable technology. The features I enjoyed. It had everything I was looking for (GPS, heartrate, bluetooth, etc.). I just shouldn't have used it to work out.
