Best Buy offers up to $100 off the LG Watch Style, no catch involved


If you want a new smartwatch of reputable quality at a reasonable price, Best Buy has an attractive offer. The recently released LG Watch Style normally sells for $250, but Best Buy lets you pick it up for $180 and keep a healthy $70 in your pocket.

All three colors are sold at discount, but the Rose Gold variant is actually $100 cheaper, as it normally sells for $280. Considering that the LG Watch Style is nice and all – it looks okay and runs the latest Android Wear 2.0 – but lacks the convenience of NFC (so no mobile payments) and GPS (no location tracking), $180 is a much sweeter price to pay than $250.

As for what the LG Watch Style can do for you, we'd rather have LG talk to you about that in detail. In short, it tells the time, summarizes notifications from your phone, responds to some voice commands, and has decent fitness tracking. It also makes some people go "- Ooh, is that a smartwatch!?" on you, which you may or may not find desirable.

Now that is a great deal for this smart watch. Especially since it comes with Android Wear 2.0. Since 2.0 now even iOS users can install all the Android Wear apps while being paired to an iPhone. Something they could not do before.

Bestbuy should offer that deal to other countries as well.

Unfortunately, LG really botched the watch design of this new generation. Compare the Watch Urbane LTE 2nd Edition with the Watch Sport, the former looks much better. The new ones just don't have any fashion appeal.

Montblanc one looks great, but 43mm is too big still. The 39mm Gear S2 is still the only size I can wear without an ugly flat tire screen.

I agree. That digital crown is so redonkulous ... LG should have made the crown design subtle and blend in with the case design. As it is, the crown size ruins it for me ... And is sticking out way too far ...

It's only just about worth the price but still with no heart rate monitor NO thanks. A smartwatch should be to replace your normal watch & fitness tracker even for non fitness people.
