Carol, 03 Aug 2014You do realize that you don't know what you say, no?And you do realize that silver does in fact corrode pretty easily, which for this matter wouldn't be much of an advantage.
Thats a scientific fact.
ThunderCrackR, 03 Aug 2014That is what you get when you choose LG over Samsung. I am not saying that they have bad produ... more"arguably more beautiful"
That's a purely subjective statement, that is.
(personally I don't think any currently available smartwatch looks any good, bar maybe the Moto360, and even that wasn't quite as good as we were led to believe by prototype shots, but that's just me)
Anonymous, 03 Aug 2014Umm.. Silver actually corrodes pretty quickly. In fact it is the worst material for this case.You do realize that you don't know what you say, no?
luqman98, 03 Aug 2014Your choice to determine which is the best.....True that!

And that is why the only smart thing I want my watch to do is tell me the time.
bobby21, 03 Aug 2014Omg look at these low quality South Korean brands. I would never buy their devices. Dude, no brand that available in the world is perfect.....

That is what you get when you choose LG over Samsung. I am not saying that they have bad products but really, why is the G Watch better than the Gear Live? The Live is made of metal, is arguably more beautiful, has an Super AMOLED screen with a much higher resolution, has a heart rate monitor, also they have a past in this smartwatch industry (and you can see the results^^). Why would you choose the G Watch? Brand? A little bit more battery? Why? This is a hardware problem, not a software one. Bad quality connectors... I still cannot understand why AndroidAuthority gave the G Watch a higher score than the one for the Gear Live in their review!
any glowing review of an android wear device yet? BTW i'm a hardcore android phone lover.
LG, be more generous to your product reliability!
Use precious metal such as Silver & Gold to plate the terminals.

The most this will do is just slow down the corrosion process. When skin makes contact with 2 dissimilar metals (I.e. The charging pads and the watch buckle) and there is a salt bridge (I.e. Sweat), this creates a galvanic cell, which creates a current through your skin and causes corrosion. Obviously it'll be at a slower pace than if the pads were actively charged.
gimmicks, crappy manufacturers, no proper beta testing, and greed.
What do we expect from consumer products anno 2014?
