The Difference

Features Compared
  1. Design
  2. No doubt out of this three smartwatches, LG Watch has the most sophisticated design and appearance. It has the honor of being the first hybrid Wear OS smartwatch with mechanical hands. Secondly it is also the first with a full screen edge-to-edge display. That shows that 2019 will most likely see even more inspiring and sophisticated designs. The Samsung galaxy watch and Huawei watch also have their respective really spectacular designs.

    The Huawei watch GT has the biggest screen size with 1.39 inches compared to the 1.3 inches of Watch W7 and Samsung Galaxy watch 1.3/1.2 inches However the Samsung Galaxy has the richest display while the LG Watch W7 has the most visible screen under sunlight.

    Looking at thickness, the Huawei Watch GT is the slimmest. It is the thinness with just 10.6mm compared to 13mm of Watch W7 and 13mm/12.7mm of the Galaxy watch. One reason the Huawei Watch GT looks more sleek than the others.

  3. Connectivity
  4. As far as connectivity is concerned, Samsung Galaxy watch is the undisputed champion. It has all the regular hardware inbuilt including NFC which is missing in both W7 and GT. This means you can’t make payments from either of the W7 or GT.

  5. Cellular Technology
  6. Again the Galaxy watch leads, it is the only standalone smartwatch amongst these three smartwatches. It has support for 2G/3G/4G built in. This allows you to make and receive calls directly from the galaxy watch without pairing with a phone. This is something you won’t be able to do on either the Watch W7 or Watch GT. Worthy to note is that the galaxy watch makes very clear voice calls.

  7. Water Resistance
  8. This time the LG Watch W7 losses, it is only rated IP68 which is water resistant up to 1.5 meters, while both Samsung galaxy watch and Huawei Watch GT are certified 5ATM, meaning you can take any of this two to the pool, no problem. This feature becomes important for folks that wish to track their swimming activities.

  9. Battery
  10. While all this three smartwatches have impressive battery life, the Huawei Watch GT has the longest battery life. On mixed usage with HRM on for about 3 hours daily it is 10 days plus. On Watch W7 and Galaxy watch it’s just over a day battery life on mixed usage.

  11. Fitness Tracking
  12. The Huawei Watch GT is the best adapted for fitness tracking based on appearance, lighter weight compared to Galaxy watch and W7. It has all the standard sensors you had expect to find on a modern smartwatch including a heart rate monitoring sensor which can’t be found on LG’s Watch W7.

  13. Media
  14. If you are after listening to your favorite tracks on the go, then the Huawei Watch GT is not the perfect choice. It has a very little internal storage space available while both Galaxy watch and W7 boost of about 2.5GB available to accommodate your files. There is no loudspeaker or microphone on the Huawei watch GT.

  15. Operating system

Huawei shunned Wear OS with the GT release, same with Samsung whose galaxy watch runs on Tizen OS which has received quiet some accolades for dishing out a better user experience. However, we believe that Wear OS is more versatile and gives that much expected freedom allowing you to access all your favorite apps. The LG Watch W7 runs on the latest Wear OS 2.1.

Which Should You Buy?

Picking a choice from these three smartwatches depends on what your preferences are and each of this three smartwatches standout in their own way.

There are folks who are not really comfortable with all the extraordinary features found on most modern smartwatches. If you are among these folks who still like the look of their traditional Swiss watch, then you should go for the LG Watch W7. It is the first of its kind, a hybrid smartwatch running on Wear OS with mechanical hands that lets you read the time even when the battery is flat plus the Wear OS advantage of diversity.

If you are among the fitness minded folks then the Huawei watch GT is the most preferred choice. It has the fitness tracking advantage of greater precision in accuracy plus it is the lightest and very flexible too. For extreme fitness events, this is the perfect choice. The battery life is way above average of what you can get from other high-end smartwatches.

No doubt Samsung Galaxy watch is the most comprehensive smartwatch among these three smartwatches. The galaxy watch is a complete smartwatch, it does more than what you can do with either of Huawei watch GT or LG Watch W7.

We will go for Samsung Galaxy Watch, it’s a complete smartwatch with a spectacular design.
