    That almost seems to good to be true for $13.99. I mean it's not an Android Wear watch, so it will be much cheaper than AW but that seems almost too cheap. Since it's not running AW I'm sure it will not get 2.0. Hopefully it's not another fraud ad like the one hammerhead discovered the other day.

    Ahhh, gotcha. I guess I never looked at all the cheap knock-offs.

    So re: battery life. Beyond impressed. Watch is exactly 2 years old. Better battery life, I assume because of updates, then when it was new.
    All day today: 49%.

    Wow, I realized this morning that it's been three years now since I started wearing a smart watch. I remember reading this thread and the LG G Watch sale that @PereDroid and @Jonny Kansas talked about. I bought my LG G Watch shortly after reading the first post in this thread. I have had two since, a Moto 360 Sport and my current Moto 360 Gen2. What a fun three years it has been. My old LG G Watch is still running strong, gave it to a friend of my daughter and it's still working great. This thread started it all for me.

    Happy Anniversary!
    This is the thread that got me going, as well! I'm still wearing my LG G, but started reading up on newer models last week. I was actually in this thread reminiscing on Friday....

    Crazy to think it's been that long. I'm only on my second one, though I have ventured into trying out non Android Wear watches...

    I guess I should add that my husband went back to his analog watch -- can't wear at work, and my son's needs a new band, but it's still in use. We're very pleased with our Gs!
    Does it make any sense to have the watch and phone share manufacturers?

    If you stick with Android Wear, there's zero benefit to getting the same as your phone.
    If you went with a Samsung Gear I'd only get that with a Sammy phone...

    I agree with Pere. I had no issues with my LG watch and 2 different Moto phones. The only reason I bought the 360 Sport was "free" with a phone.

    I think I'd like something a little more sporty with a round face. I love my G, but I'm ready for a change --- and a round face.
