Smartwatches are getting better with every generation. That became very evident during the course of this LG G Watch review — the form factor is improving and, with Android Wear, the functionality is getting much better too.

The G Watch has its downsides. Battery life is a day-and-a-half at best, the LCD display is a little pixelated and gets washed out in sunlight, recharging requires placing the G Watch in a special dock, and the included watch strap is a pretty basic rubber number.

However, at a relatively affordable $229, offering the first access to Android Wear and providing a case that’s pretty stylish so far as these things go, the LG G Watch is a smartwatch worth considering.

As of this writing, Robert Martin did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
