The LG Watch Style and Watch Sport are now available for purchase
Earlier this week, we got to feast our eyes upon the first smartwatches to be running Android Wear 2.0 - the LG Watch Style and Watch Sport. These are the first smartwatches that LG has released since the Watch Urbane, and although there isn't necessarily anything revolutionary taking place with the Style or Sport's design, that's not really supposed to be the main focus here. Just like past Nexus devices and Google's current Pixel smartphones, the Watch Style and Watch Sport serve as devices to showcases Google's latest software.

Despite just being announced this past Wednesday, both smartwatches are currently available for purchase through a wide array of retailers and outlets. The LG Watch Style - the cheaper and less functional of the two wearables - can be picked up from both Best Buy and the Google Store. The Silver and Titanium colors will sell for $249, whereas the Rose Gold flavor will feature a $30 premium and sell for $279. You can also purchase the Watch Sport from the Google Store, but the added support for LTE, GPS, and NFC will set you back a hefty $349. The two color options for this watch include Dark Blue and Titanium, but the latter of the two is out of stock at the time of this writing. 


In addition to the Google Store, you can also choose to purchase the Sport though either Verizon or AT&T. Only the Titanium color is available through the two carriers, and while the Watch Sport gets a nice discount of $100 down to just $249 when purchased through AT&T, you'll need to pony over $329 for the Verizon model when bought on a 2-year contract or $379 if you decide to buy it outright through the carrier.

Both the LG Watch Style and Watch Sport are very interesting devices, and if you're already on the Android Wear 2.0 bandwagon and are in need of a new smartwatch, both gadgets can be purchased starting today. However, if you'd like to hold off a bit and see what others think of the watches, we're in the process of getting review units sent our way so that we can get our thoughts on LG's latest wearables as soon as possible. Stay tuned!

The style isn't even remotely worth it.

Can't do it. The style is not for me.

After buying and returning the urbane LTE 2nd edition, I'm reluctant to jump on the sport. The issues with handling communications between BT, LTE, and WiFi was atrocious. Like it didn't know which connection to use. That and the battery life was miserable. I live with a Pebble now so 13 hours is not going to cut it. I'm considering the style because of the rotating crown, new SD chip and better battery life-though I know it's too early to know how much better. I don't go by paper specs they're subjective. I don't need a HR monitor and it had the right sensors for basic fitness tracking. Also includes the ambient light sensor without a flat tire. The only color that looks good to me is titanium. The only question I have is the 18MM band going to look OK on my medium sized wrists?
