That is, your phone may be somewhere in the bowels of the office five floors from your current location, but you will still receive notifications. The fact is that the watch itself is able to connect to a Wi-Fi network and synchronize with a smartphone via the cloud, even if it is in a completely different wireless network. By the way, Apple Watch can do almost the same, with the only difference being that the watch and iPhone must be on the same Wi-Fi network.

As for the functionality, it is quite standard for the Android Wear platform, which, with the release of the Apple Watch, began to develop very actively, and this pleases. The only pity is that it still does not have official support for iOS. It is also worth highlighting a good autonomy. You can safely count on 1.5 days even with the maximum load on the watch, including the constantly active display. If you mess with energy saving, then a couple of days LG Urbane will work easily. A big plus for LG smartwatches is that they are among the first to receive Android Wear updates.
