    Is it possible to control the volume of your media player with this watch? I've searched but can't find an answer. Trying to decide what I want to get.

    Thanks in advance!

    I've been looking at a lot of reviews and might have found your answer here: LG G Watch Review - Smartwatch Reviews

    According to the review from Tom's Guide, you are unable to adjust the volume of music with the watch, but you are able to change the song track.

    Thanks for the link! I wonder if it's something they may be incorporating into it at some point. I was an early adopter of the original gear and enjoyed the watch actually, but switched to LG g3 and got the galaxy gear to work but limited and battery draining horribly.

    Makes sense. However, for me per say, I would use the watch while running.

    I usually play music at a certain volume level, and leave it alone.

    That's just my experience. It's strange that you are unable to do it via the watch though O_o.

    It came in handy when my son would be watching Netflix and turn the volume all the way up. I was able to turn it back down without chasing him! Lol.

    I think I read somewhere that you can adjust the volume on Netflix with the G watch. :P

    I'll try and find it again.

    When paired with my ATT LG G3 phone, and using the default music player, I can change tracks. Also the album art shows up on the watch.

    I just tried it. Doesn't work, just play and pause. I have no doubt that once this platform matures just a bit, app interactions will have grown by leaps and bounds. Now please excuse me I need to finish watching Hemlock Grove.

    I could swear I saw a guy controlling the volume from his watch on youtube. I'll have to search for it.

    found it. He's using an app for the watch called wearable widgets



    Apparently not an idea solution as its apparently heavy on the battery life and it seems from the reviews it requires the app open on your phone as well.

    Flogging a year old thread I know but just in case you stumble across it now you can increase and decrease the music volume from your g watch.
