Pro Built-in Wi-Fi
If your watch is out of bluetooth range of your phone, it will connect to available Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi takes more power than bluetooth, but it allows you to not have to carry your phone all the time and still receive notifications.
Pro Classical style
The bezel isn't too large, and especially from a distance it could be mistaken for a regular watch. It's the type of watch that you can wear everyday, even to work without looking like a computer on your wrist.
Pro Fitness tracking
There is a PPG Heart rate monitor on-board, and it will track your heart rate.
Pro Two color options
The watch is available in classy silver and shiny gold colors.
Pro Water and dust resistant
The product is IP67 certified. The certification guarantees that the product can be submerged up to a meter in water at room temperature for up to 30 minutes.
Pro Measures elevation
Built-in barometer is capable of measuring elevation.
Pro Replaceable watch bands
Urbane has standard 22mm watch bands.
Pro Compatible with most Android Wear apps
Because it is round there will be a few apps that don't work properly, but the vast majority of apps will work.
Pro Decent battery life
The watch will always allow for at least a full day (unless you are constantly playing games on it), but usually will last for 2 full days even with ambient mode on (always on). The OLED display helps with this - with a black background for watch faces the display isn't lighting up the black pixels, greatly reducing the power draw in ambient mode.
Con Lacks built-in GPS
Some smartwatches have built-in GPS which allows them to track runs without needing to carry your phone with you, allowing you to use your watch as a fitness tracker. The Urbane doesn't have this ability.
The G Watch R is 10.9mm thick and weighs 66g. It will take some time to get used to wearing it, especially if you previously haven't worn a watch.
