I'm trying to get myself one of those smart watches sold nowadays. I am looking at getting a Samsung Gear 2 or an LG G watch. Is there any feature or specs I should consider before buying any of these smart watches? Is there any specific advantage one has over the other? I would appreciate your inputs on this matter.
Choosing which smart watch to buy
The advantages of owning a Smartwatch are pretty big, offering you the possibility to receive your notifications on the Smartwatch directly, without using your phone; you can consider this a watch that you can upgrade and customize as you like by adding tons of features, pair it with a smartphone, receive updates about anything you like.
When buying a Smartwatch, it is better to match the brand of the phone with the watch itself. If you own a Samsung phone (based on the Android OS), then you should buy yourself a Smartwatch that is made by the same company. The same case applies for owners of the LG smartphones.
If you really need to choose between the two, then you must understand what each one offers:
The Samsung Gear 2 offers a very good battery consumption, with a capacity of 300 mAh, a Bluetooth communication service, a Wi-Fi antenna, and also a micro-USB interface for charging via the computer.
The LG G Watch has a 400mAh battery that holds a bit more then the previous mentioned Samsung Gear 2, it is fully buttonless, a good resolution with high bright colors, with an always-on function for the screen allowing it to behave just like a normal watch.
