LG Watch Style vs. LG Watch Sport
The Sport casts $349, while the Style will set you back $249. Both watches are water and dust resistant. The Style model has 512MB of RAM and 4GB of onboard storage and is compatible to both Apple and an Android device. The Style, however, does not have NFC, LTE connectivity, or even a heart monitor.
The LG Watch Style is essentially a notification and Google Assistant accessory. The screen is vivid, and the new Android Wear 2.0 runs swimmingly in the smartwatch thought. The Style is the perfect go-to watch for most individuals.

The Sport variant is the more advanced of the two. At $100 more, it should be. The Sport has NFC, a heart rate monitor, GPS, LTE connectivity, and a heavy duty waterproofing. Users can actually swim with the watch on. It even has a barometer.
The Sport also has more physical buttons, to make setting up timers and workout routines easier. The Sport can not just sync with your smartphone, but it can also effectively replace it. The LTE connectivity means that you can make calls and receive texts without the need to have a phone synced, reports TechRadar.
However, the watch is bulkier but the added features make it the clear winner of the two. For more up-to-date entertainment and tech news, keep reading TechPlz.
