My take on Android Wear

I was able to acquire an LG Android wear device recently and have used it for about a month, here are my thoughts.

  • I like having a watch, as opposed to not having one
  • The battery life is crap, 1 day
  • Has a proprietary charger, need the stand plus the micro USB cable. One more thing to travel with.
  • Worse then the battery life on the watch is that you need to have BT on and connected constantly from your phone. Kills the battery on my Moto X and makes it unusable if I am on the go all day.
  • There is no killer application to use the watch for. Swiping tinder matches and getting ubers from my watch is not that useful.
  • The watch has no speaker, so no way to actually respond to incoming calls or get verbal user feedback for anything.

 

Conclusion:

Skip it until battery life gets better and there is some app that makes a useful presence on your wrist.
