LG Electronics W270 Smartwatch
This smartwatch by LG is kind of simple but stylish smartwatch with limited features. This smartwatch is compatible with Android and iOS devices. LG has tried to keep this smartwatch slim. It works on Android Wear 2.0 operating system. It is made up of stainless steel 316L and has plastic back which increases the durability of this smartwatch.
You will get a good looking smartwatch at a reasonable prize. But heart sensor and GPS are absent in this smartwatch, these two features have to be there in any sport wearable. You can receive and answer facebook messeges via messenger and download music from google play or stream spotify. If you use IFTTT with smart home products, you can create widget buttons to turn on/off lights, tv and other products.
Water and Dust Resistant
LG Electronics W270 Smartwatch is IP67 certified. It is water and dust resistant. It would be better if you don’t wear it while swimming. Leather strap makes it look amazing but you have to take care of it while around water as it may get damaged due to moisture. But you can easily swap them out easily for a compatible 18mm Android Wear Mode option.
Design and Display
LG Electronics W270 Smartwatch looks stylish and is round shaped. Display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and uses a 1.2-inch P-OLED display with a resolution of 360 x 360 pixels. Resolution is not enough when compared with other smartwatches but it is not big issue for smaller display.
Ambient light sensor makes it reliable and consistent in dferent lighting conditions. Display of this smartwatch is bright and sharp and user interface is also easy to operate. you can set different custom designs on the watch face. The touchscreen and dial are easy to use as its touch response is excellent. It is not bulky and feels nice on the wrist. The straps of the watch is easily changeable.
You just need to pull back of the pins positioned on the underside of the device and unhook the strap. There is one central rotatable crown on the right side of the Watch. It looks slim but classic.
LG Electronics W270 Smartwatch uses Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100. It has internal storage of 4 GB and 512 MB RAM. You will get Google’s handy digital assistant in this smartwatch. By using voice commands you can ask questions, send messages and activate smart home devices remotely, for this you have to hold the crown. It also has Google Play Store and notifications can be handled easily.
It has Google Fit to track your workout sessions and you will get basic feature of step count. Google Fit allows you to track some activities like Walking, Running, Treadmill running, Biking, Stationary biking, Aerobics, Stair climbing machine, Push-up challenge, Sit-up challenge and Squat challenge.
Poor Battery Life
LG Electronics W270 Smartwatch uses battery of 240mAh Li-Ion battery which is non-removable. This much backup of battery is not enough for running this smartwatch hardly for one day. It barely runs for 24 hours and this factor is very disappointing in this smartwatch. It you download anything, it will consume a lot battery.
If you use it just to receive notifications throughout the day, it will last you until night time. May be with update, this issue can get solved. Since it has not speaker, this may become the biggest turn off for some people.
