I feel like I spend all year sometimes trying to find the perfect gift for my husband. Some years I am moderately successful, while others – not so much. I am so incredibly excited about this year’s gift giving season because I know for a fact I hit the mark this year and can barely contain myself!
This year I will be giving him the LG – Watch W7 Smartwatch 44.5mm Stainless Steel and boy is he going to LOVE it!!! Oh yeah, for sure…
The most important feature is that it works with Android devices (4.4 or later) AND Apple IOS devices (9.3 or later). Perfect – we have both in my family but my husband has IOS. We are good to go…
The LG Watch W7 is equipped with a new version of Wear OS, featuring an updated Google Assistant with optimized AI assistance and new fitness features. Perfect for our New Year’s resolutions that we are so excited about. I even signed us all up for a 5K (sshhh – don’t tell anyone yet). The watch display is large sized and easy to see with an edge to edge display.
It is complete with mechanical hands and powered by a gearbox developed in partnership with Soprod SA, a Swiss company, to ensure precise movements for accurate time keeping. How do you scroll through features? You can navigate, handle phone calls, or return to the home screen, using the classic serrated crown. Even a simple flick of the wrist will allow for quick and easy navigation.
It has Master Tools such as a compass, stopwatch, timer, calibration, barometer, and altimeter to ensure you get the most out of the great outdoors and help track your progress. This is unlike any device we have ever had – perfect for camping, our mountain hikes, biking and so much more.
Bands can be swapped out easily based on occasion with an effortless, quick release band – no tools required… Incredibly he can choose from a set of unique watch faces, all of which use the mechanical hands.
Because we are so active, particularly in the warmer months – it is critical that this watch be water resistant. It is water resistant up to 3.28 feet!
