The holidays are my favorite time of the year, but it is aways hard to shop for my husband. This year I was super excited that I got to try out the new LG Watch W7, as it became the perfect gift for Wes this year! The LG Watch W7 is the first hybrid Wear OS by Google watch that features mechanical hands and fully functional touchscreen, with a watch-only mode that lets the W7 last for 100 days between charges.
Powered by Wear OS, it offers Google Assistant and fitness tracking features, and the premium stainless steel design resists corrosion and scratches, ensuring long-lasting use. With a Swiss-made gearbox, this LG Watch W7 smartwatch delivers precise hand movements for accurate time monitoring. The watch looks super sleek and sporty. It’s definitely a watch that can be worn to the gym or to work.
One of my favorite features, yes I tried it on too, is the big face watch with touch screen that makes it super easy to read your news updates, social media messages and keep up with your calendar. In addition to the touch screen, you can navigate, handle phone calls, or return to the home screen, using the classic serrated crown. Another feature I loved is the touch-free navigation. Whether you’re carrying too many bags, holding your child, or working out with two hands, you can still scroll through your phone with a simple flick of the wrist.
In terms of aesthetics, I love that you can change it up. You can choose from a selection of aesthetically and functionally unique watch faces, each taking advantage of the mechanical hands. You can also effortlessly switch your watch band (without needing any tools) to match the occasion with the astonishing simplicity of the quick release on the included band.
To be honest, I really had only thought about the Apple Watch when I was considering a smart watch because we both have iPhones. I was super excited to learn that it is compatible with most iPhone/iOS and Androids. ** I think this watch is a perfect gift for a fitness enthusiast or someone who loves to be an early tech adopter!
