If you push the top right button, the LG Watch W7 mechanical hands move out of the way so you can read your notifications. It sort of works.

Someone at LG trying to balance battery life and time display with smartwatch functionality. If you prioritize the former over the latter, it’s not a crazy compromise.

It’s like one of those videos of a drunk Russian hitting themselves on the head with a shovel.

The Google Wear OS guy insisted that the hands disappear (you stop noticing them) after you wear it for a week or so. I’m ...skeptical.

It looks like a swimmer doing the butterfly stroke.

It’s the motion of the info on the display while the hands are moving out of the way that makes it look that way.

Ugh... Why is the text even moving? And then moving back? The hands could have moved without the text scrolling: 43 min to work <-----o---------> Oxford St WTF?!

I think — think — the idea is that the text has to move because you’re using your free hand to push the button, so there’s no way for you to scroll. But, yeah.

Here's a better question: why don't the hands both move to the same position (e.g. both at the 3 o'clock position). Wouldn't that you know, cover less of the screen than spreading them like that??

Maybe it does work that way when the hands are already closer together? This was just a few minutes hands on; I really need to get a review unit and do a proper test.
