By far one of the best-looking Android Wear device

from Digit
I can’t find any real utility for a smartwatch. It hasn’t reached its fullest potential yet. If you still want a fancy-looking Android Wear device, you can consider the LG Watch Urbane. Personally, I’d say that your money is better spent on a real watch. That can at least tell you the time, even if it’s been off your wrists for a few months. .. Full review

It is expensive and bulky

from Tech Advisor
There's a lot to like about the LG Watch Urbane with its handy Wi-Fi connectivity and the welcome new version of Android Wear. Since it's essentially the same device as the G Watch R in terms of hardware, your purchase really hinges on the design. It is expensive and bulky so we can't see it appearing to the masses so the G Watch R is still our recommended choice... Full review

An even more traditional timepiece exterior

from GSMArena

In many ways, the LG Watch Urbane is a regular member of the company's smartwatch line. It is a new product, with a fresh exterior, trying to target a different demographic. In all fairness, it isn't much different from the G Watch R after all. The hardware in the pair is almost identical, to such a degree that even the apparent inclusion of Wi-Fi, is nothing more than utilizing a radio that was already there.

So, the true question here isn't really whether the Watch Urbane is good or bad. LG has definitely managed to refine the G Watch R, with no glaring compromises. The real he... Full review

One of the most expensive smartwatches on the market

from Phonedog

For $349, the LG Watch Urbane is one of the most expensive smartwatches on the market. If you’re looking for a stylish smartwatch, then this is the one to get. But for the price and still developing Android Wear operating system, I do find it hard to recommend for most people. Once again, unless your primary reason of buying it is for a fashion statement, most of the unique features found on the Urbane will come to many other Android Wear smartwatches in the coming months so it’s not like the new gesture support or the Wi-Fi support or even the new app launcher is exclusive to t...

The Telegraph

Android's best Apple Watch rival

from The Telegraph
The fact that I am even comparing it to high end-watches rather than just smartwatches is testament to the fact that LG has helped to push the product category forward by leaps and bounds. However, I think it may be a couple more years before people start viewing these as viable alternatives to their timepieces.Having said that, if you're an Android user who is gagging to get in on the smartwatch action, or feeling left out by all those iPhone users with Apple Watches, this is undoubtedly the best option out there at the moment...

The design isn't quite as sophisticated as the price might make you think

from Pocket-lint
The LG Watch Urbane sets the bar high, but misses the mark. It's the most expensive Android Wear device, but not the best quality smartwatch out there. If it was late 2014 then we might feel differently, but the market has moved forward.There's a whole lot that's positive about the LG Watch Urbane however. It does give you a more sophisticated look and, if it fits, it's a more elegant look than some of the toy-like rivals. Then you have the latest Android Wear 5.1 software offering, battery life that matches its rivals, and there's a proper round display too. .. Full review
Wareable

Slightly flashy, tech companion

from Wareable

The Watch Urbane does a nice job of looking like a traditional wristwatch and it follows the G Watch R in bringing solid performance and battery life to Android Wear. Still, it's expensive now with Android Wear prices tumbling in recent months. And it falls just short of being either so beautifully crafted we have to have it or so genuinely useful that it blows its direct competition out of the water. We've seen a lot of smartwatch attempts from LG and this is a huge improvement over 2014's boring square G Watch. If you're more interested in a slightly flashy, tech companion than tracking h...

PhoneArena

Very attractive, classic design

from PhoneArena

In our mind, out of all the smartwatch makers on the market right now, LG is one of very few that seems to get it — a smartwatch needs to blend in, and not stand out, in order for people to consider purchasing it. It also needs to be well-designed, made out of respectable materials, and not require constant charging. LG has arguably scratched all of these requirements off the list with the Watch Urbane.

We also appreciated the organizational nature of the latest Android Wear update, which turned chaos into order, and even brought a few extra features to sweeten the pot for pro... Full review

GreenBot

Big, bulky, and boring

from GreenBot

The Watch Urbane is the most expensive Android Wear watch available, and all it has to show for it is an all-metal casing with a style that is at best, divisive and at worst, gaudy. It functions well, and it’s your first chance to see the new Android Wear 5.1 update, but with a price tag more than $100 higher than the competition, I expect more. More innovation, and more refined design.

The battery lasted through a typical day, but not any longer—how about addressing that? How about a larger display? Or a significantly thinner, smaller, lighter casing that works well for... Full review

TUAW

A premium watch that falls short of greatness

from TUAW

The Urbane is a clear (and mostly thoughtful) improvement) over LG's last two watches, and stands right up alongside the rest of the Android Wear greats. In fact, the blend of LG's hardware and Google's updated software makes the Watch Urbane the most complete example of Mountain View's wearable vision to date. With all that said, though, its broad, chunky design, hefty price tag and lack of any dramatic technical improvements make the Urbane a hard sell. If you're gung-ho about Android Wear and need something that won't clash with your suit, the Watch Urbane is your single best choice righ... Full review
