LG G Watch R Disadvantages
Many consumers have been disappointed with the LG G Watch R leather band. While it may look good, some have said that the high-end quality is lacking. When looking at the price, most would have assumed something much more durable out of a premium LG Smartwatch.
The LG G Watch R price has been a turn off for many as it’s one of the most expensive Android smartwatches on the market. With a price tag of $349, it is more than the Moto 360 and the new Samsung Gear S.
Samsung introduced us to a standalone smartwatch in the Gear S which has become another LG G Watch R disadvantage. The standalone Gear S makes it possible to make and receive calls, texts, and emails without the integration of a smartphone. The Gear S also has 3G connectivity, and the G Watch R does not have the standalone data or 3G functionality.
