Can make calls from the watch using your mobile number meh? So far i call from the watch, will show sim card number from watch and not from phone.

Change the watch face to a dark theme type face
Found this app "Bubble Cloud" which can further reduce the brightness (even at Level 1)

Hi guys I'm seriuously considering getting this LG urbane 2 if local telcos don't support samsung gear S3 LTE e-sim.

I also found out from youtube review that LG urbane 2 unable to use bluetooth headphone for calls only for music. Is that true?

So if I pair the watch with my android phone one time which has the singtel dash apps, I will be able to insert the NFC embedded sim card in the watch for NFC purchases like EZ-link transaction and other NFC purchases?

Thanks for any inputs!
You are able to use bluetooth earphones for both calls and music.

The video you had seen was on the beta release version in Nov 2015.

Had a mobile sharing plan with singtel and currently they are having a promotion of $5/mth for a year so happily I grabbed the offer. With this additional sim card I used it for my watch.
So I had it for a week now. My take for this smartwatch:

PROs
1) Aesthethic – Looks and feel great, a very manly watch!
2) Handsfree! At last I’m able to walk/sit without holding my hp. No more taking in and out hp from pocket esp when busy at work. This is my primary reason for getting this smartwatch.
3) Phone call – Was skeptical about the audio quality but turn out good! I did not even put near my mouth just folding my arm and placing the watch just slightly below chin. Very please with it. If calls come in while you are sitting is even best. Put your elbow on table and talk/hear with ease.
4) Health monitoring – This by far is the best feature. Really enjoy the convenience of monitoring all my health activities without having a hp. Cycling, jogging, walking without having a hp is great!
5) Auto connect – Unlike the hp(my usual habit is to select from data roaming to wifi when I reached home or enable Bluetooth to car radio when in car), this watch just connect automatically without me needing to do anything. Impressive!

CONs
1) Price – Quite Ex
2) Battery life – I can’t even past 12hrs! But then I read some foreign forum saying the battery will get better overtime and am hoping that’s true.
3) Keyboard – Not so friendly, need to swipe around to input. I tried the Samsung gear S3 and they are much better in terms of text input.
4) OK google – Using voice is quite a pain. I’m thinking this feature only tailored to those with European accent. I tested it with “Hey I’ve got the watch” and it turned out “hey I go to work”. It does work for very short phrase like “call so & so”. Unless they come out with recognising Asian accent otherwise this feature is quite redundant for me.

YET TO TRY
1) Headphone – Havn’t got a headphone for music/call answering. Will need recommendations from anyone who can share.
2) NFC – Looking fwd to try this feature but I guess will have to wait for AW2.0 update. Or has anyone able to use it yet?

CONCLUSION
Glad I purchased it, as it does improve my lifestyle. That said, I must add that this smartwatch is ideal for very small grp of ppl who don’t often surf net, social media texting, gaming, videoing, taking pic but still need be contactable for simple call/text functions. After all we are supposed to use technology to benefit us and not letting technology control us ya! Just my 2 cents
Nice review bro!

I agree with your feedback except I really enjoy using "OK Google"

I am using Backbeats 2 to pair with my LG Urbane but should be upgrading to Beoplay H5 soon

Thanks Ym901s for sharing. Great to know and now I can go shop for a good BT earpiece.

Btw...care to share how long does your batt last? I don't see any improvement yet still getting around 10hrs. Even tho I've off the AOD and location.
Is there a way to check any running apps that's consuming the batt? Thks

There's this application at Playstore. Wear Speaker. Apparently it puts your watch on loud speaker. Louder than usual but the issue is if loud speaker on your watch means loud speaker on your phone as well.
