Although its ability to use GPS to track your run is handy, its poor screen, uninspiring design and lack of a heart-rate monitor means the SmartWatch 3 doesn't impress over its more luxurious Android Wear competitors.

With its new G3 variant, LG gets into octa-core chipsets and gives it customers a cheaper local offer.
Pricing not available
The LG Vigor has much of the same style and features of the G3, but at a fraction of the price.
The LG G3 S may come with the same name and physical design as its flagship brother, but the similarities are only skin deep. The G3 S's specs have been watered down in every way, making this little more than a low-end phone in a high-end body with a mid-range price.
The 3G-only LG Realm isn't a terrible phone, but $20 more gets you the Motorola Moto G's heartier hardware and better design.
The LG G Pad 7.0 is a basic budget tablet that slightly outmatches its competition with a supremely comfortable build, modest software extras and bargain-basement pricing.
Run-of-the-mill specs paired with sleek, minimalist designs make the LG G Pads attractive budget buys, but there's little to distinguish them from similarly performing slates in the same price range.
The LG G Watch attempts to bring you the future on your wrist, but with its generic design, unimpressive battery life, and unpolished early software, you're better off waiting to see what else is around the bend.
Although it bears the same "G2" name as its big brother, the LG G2 Mini is watered down in every respect. Its screen has a disappointingly low resolution, its processor doesn't put up much of a fight and it has an 8- rather than 13-megapixel camera. Unless you crave 4G, the Motorola Moto G is a much better buy as it offers a better screen, the same processor and costs half the price. If however you're after the best mobile tech but in a more pocketable size, Sony's superb Xperia Z1 Compact is where your money should go.
Save for the LG Lucid 3’s disappointing photo quality, the mid-tier device ranks high in its class and is an excellent value on contract.
