In case you haven’t heard, smart watches are the latest tech craze that everyone seems to be getting into these days. A smart watch is, as the name might imply, a bit more advanced than a normal watch. Depending on the make, model and price you are willing to pay for such a device, features and options can range from basic to spectacular.
In order to compete with the main contender Apple in the smartwatch market, Google has teamed up with esteemed tech manufacturer LG and produced the LG Watch Sport, which is a worthy adversary for Apple’s Watch Series 2. But is one better than the other? Keep reading to find out.
Design & Specs
As far as the design goes, the LG Watch Sport takes the cake. The watch, although hefty in size, has a superb design that is so aesthetically pleasing you’ll be thrilled to wear it every day. Unfortunately for Apple, their Watch Series 2 cannot even compete with the LG Watch Sport in the design department.
As for specs, both watches hold their own pretty well when set off against each other. However, the LG Watch Sport wins a little bit of ground in this area as well due to the fact that it can be used as an independent 4G/LTE device. The Apple Watch Series 2 doesn’t offer this perk, so maybe it’s time for Apple to look into the technology necessary for such a feature and maybe implement it in their next installment in their smart watch series.
However, the Apple Watch Series 2 is definitely smaller and lighter than the heavy, although gorgeous, LG Watch Sport. At the end of the day, all that really matters is what your needs are. You need to choose the device that is right for you.
