I think smart watch manufacturers should produce some with limited features and at lower prices. Many of the smartphone features are bettter used and accessible from smartphone or tablets. Up to date I have limited myself to purchasing a smart band, because festures in the smart band is what makes sense to be oiut of the phone such as monitoring sleep and movement.

Apps I have include Wear Media to play my 1 GB of music stored on the watch through bluetooth and Endomondo/Ghostracer to track my runs using GPS while listening to music through bluetooth without having to carry a phone. My calls are forwarded to the watch and I am paired through LTE so I still receive/send SMS from my phone when I leave the phone at home.
Hello, long time reader... 1st time contributer. as an owner of the original 2015 release of this watch (when it was first released for only 6 days), I can attest that my version works on every carrier including Verizon, where this new one only works on AT&T. This is why I feel that LG cancelled their sale took them back because most carriers (probably Verizon) were upset that they (user) can take the watch and move it around from carrier to carrier. this is only my personal opinion from experience as a real, current owner and daily user of the first gen watch, and also a tinker'r and hacker of wear software for use on android and bb passport

LG have withdraw this watch from sale as of today, 20th Nov 2015, with no indication if it will ever go back on sale. The are indicating "hardware issues" as the cause of the withdrawl. Some people actually have the watches. LG need to indicate what the hardware issue is to allow these people to decide wether to keep their watches or not!
You should update the watch description. This watch is not yet released anywhere (unfortunatelly). Can't wait to get my hands on this ... hope LG doesn't keep us waiting much longer.

JuGGy, 05 Oct 2015About the wrong resolution guy...that's circular display not rectangular...MR.GUY, even circular screen's resolution is measured by height X width
2014 Moto 360 = 320 X 290 1.6 inch (diameter) = 205 PPI
Lg G watch R = 320 X 320 1.3 inch (diameter, i own one) = 348 PPI
Samsung Gear S2 = 360 X 360 1.2 inch (diameter) = 424.26 PPI
and they have corrected it G Watch Urbane 2nd edition = 480 X 480 so the ppi across the screen (diameter) is now calculated for 484 ppi
ppi is pixel per inch, as long as the screen has an area, whether its circle, square, rectangle or triangle, pixel density can be calculated
i hope you "understand" now what "ppi" means
Shomi, 04 Oct 2015Are these watches from Samsung and LG themeable? I mean can you make your own themes or do you... moreI'm sure Android Wear can do themes, too.
I had the Samsung Gear 2 (Tizen) before and I was able to download lots of themes (watch faces) from the app store. ;)
