As the wearable electronics market evolves and matures , different smartwatch vendors (and different products within each vendor’s line) are taking different paths to differentiation and (hopeful) success. Most devices are all-LCD or -OLED across the entirety of the watch face.
LG’s new Watch W7 takes the « unique » (and largely so-far panned , although as I write this I haven’t yet seen any hands-on reviews) approach of placing mechanical watch hands in front of the full-face digital display. Then there’s Martian’s G1 and successor products , which devote only a portion of the face to a mini-OLED display for text-only notifications. They also offer Amazon Alexa, « OK Google, » and Apple Siri voice interface options via an integrated microphone and speaker along with a Bluetooth tether to a companion smartphone, a capability which was the primary motivation for this teardown.
