LG Watch Sport (W280) Features

  1. Design
  2. The LG Watch Sport just like the name goes comes in a sporty and elegant design with a prestigious and beast-like appearance. It is a suitable wear for both men and women but a more befitting wear for men.

  3. Battery
  4. The LG Watch Sport battery life is quite impressive but below our expectations.
