Rumour – Next LG smartwatch may work independently from smartphone

Rumour – Next LG smartwatch may work independently from smartphone

The LG G Watch R has not even officially arrived in Australia and rumours of yet another LG smartwatch have surfaced. We have already seen the original LG G Watch as reviewed by Daniel and the Moto 360 is due here in October/November, so it’s a bit of a surprise to see another LG smartwatch possibly on the horizon. FCC documents suggest LG may be working on version three of their smartwatch range which will come with a built-in 3G CDMA radio. If this rumour is correct, it would be in direct competition to the recently released Samsung Gear S[Read More...]

LG G Watch — Review

LG G Watch — Review

LG is no stranger to smartwatches, having made an early attempt at the market with the LG-GD910. It wasn’t terribly successful, but neither were most smartwatches in those days. When Pebble launched on Kickstarter, the enthusiasm with which the public embraced the project sent a clear signal to OEMs and software makers that smartwatches were finally an idea whose time had come. Earlier this year, Google birthed Android Wear – a wearable-specific version of Android – and LG’s G Watch is one of the first devices to run the new operating system. LG has been a player in Android Wear[Read More...]

Good Deal: Get a 16GB LG G3, G Watch and a 32GB microSD card for $629 at Harvey Norman this weekend

Harvey Norman has a “Dollar Deals” promotion on at the moment where you can buy an LG G3 (16GB) for $628, and for $1 more they’ll throw in an LG G Watch and a Sandisk 32GB Ultra microSD card – at least $275 extra value. The phone’s available either in Metallic Black or Silk White, but it doesn’t specify if you get to choose between the black or white G Watch – I’d imagine the back will be more popular.

LG launches the LG L80 with 5″ screen, Knock Code and big battery for $299

LG has listed the third in their current range of L Series phones available in Australia. The LG L80, is again a 3G only phone aimed at the budget market, but comes with features from their higher end phones and a large 5″ display. The phone itself is fairly basic in terms of specs, with a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 processor powering the phone and 1GB of RAM. The L80 has got basic storage clocking in at just 4GB, but also carries a microSD card slot to expand that out a bit. The 2540mAh battery though could just about see you[Read More...]

LG G3 — Review

LG G3 — Review

As we approach the end of the US summer, the big guns of the Android ecosystem — HTC, Samsung and to a lesser extent Sony — have played their hands. These manufacturers traditionally square off in the early months of the year launch their annual flagships, and for the most part, that’s it. We generally see something more from each manufacturer in the latter half of the year in the form of larger (and in some cases, less successful) models — Note, Max and Ultra — but that’s generally about it. But times change. Over the last two years, we’ve[Read More...]

Smaller G Flex successor to arrive before the end of the year

Smaller G Flex successor to arrive before the end of the year

The G Flex was an interesting device, it showed off many facets of LG’s ability to incorporate new technologies, as well as solve problems on the fly. It didn’t set the world afire with sales, but as a halo device, the G Flex is well deserving of a second model, and that’s exactly the plan according to sources in Korea. LG will apparently unveil a second model of the G Flex in Korea before the end of the year. The new G Flex will be a more compact model than the previous 6″ behemoth, and will also carry a higher[Read More...]

Latest Android Wear update for LG G Watch brings three new watch faces

Latest Android Wear update for LG G Watch brings three new watch faces

The recent KGW42N update for Android Wear is now hitting the LG G Watch as KGW42Q. The improvements to the alarm and navigation functions have been documented, but the update also includes three new watch faces for the LG G Watch, and they’re not bad. The G Watch shipped with 24 Android Wear watch faces, none of which was terribly spectacular, but after the update, three new ones are actually looking pretty good. Named Sporty, Chic and Classic, the watch faces are analogue based, with a second hand movement ticking around. There’s a date on each one, with a three[Read More...]

Reader Poll: Round Android Wear watches – LG G Watch R or Motorola Moto 360?

Last time we checked in on which Android Wear watch you were looking at , the Moto 360 with it’s round face design and traditional timepiece-like looks easily ran away with the votes. 65% of you said you were waiting for Motorola’s watch to be released before pulling the trigger on Android Wear, telling us it was either the circular design or the more traditional style you wanted.

LG officially announces the G Watch R

LG officially announces the G Watch R

After teasing for a few days, LG has officially announced their round faced smartwatch competitor – the LG G Watch R. The watch will be available to view at IFA, before becoming available in Q4 later this year.
