The LG G Watch is considered to be a veteran in the smartwatch space now, considering LG’s successor smartwatches (G Watch R, Watch Urbane, Watch Urbane LTE, and now the Watch Urbane LTE Second Edition) as well as the year and a half that Android Wear has been in the wearables market. With that said, for some, the G Watch was one of the original greats, which makes this deal even more exciting for those who want a smartwatch but don’t want to break the bank.
G Watch Pricing, Specs, and Features
Retail site A4C is offering the G Watch for just $69.99, $159 off the original price. Of course, the G Watch is black and refurbished (remember these two things before you buy), but it should still get the job done.
The G Watch features a 1.65-inch IPS LCD display, IP67 water and dust resistance, notifications, voice control, an always-on display, interchangeable strap compatibility, and a wireless charging dock. The G Watch runs Android Wear, controlled by Google, which means that you’ll get the same wearables experience as those who purchase an expensive Moto 360 smartwatch. If you want to get your feet wet into wearables but don’t want to wait for the price of the Moto 360 to fall to $99 or less, then the G Watch here is a good deal for you.
The A4C price for the G Watch is good, but misses an even bigger price cut recently
For those of you who pick up the G Watch from A4C, you’re getting a good price. And yet, you just missed a deal at the retailer. A reliable source offered a deal on the smartwatch recently that cut the price tag from $70 to $50 ($49.99) for the G Watch, which would be an even sweeter price point for what will prove to be an entry into Android Wear for many consumers who’re still not sure why they want or need a smartwatch on their wrist.
