Even before the highly-anticipated Moto X’s reveal, LG decided to get a head start and announce its circular Android Wear smartwatch. Designed not to replace the existing, square G Watch, but to simply serve as an additional option, the G Watch R sports a 1.3-inch Plastic OLED (P-OLED) full 360-degree display — emphasis on that entire display, says LG. Thus, this makes for some nice simulated watch faces, as seen above.
Powering it is a 410mAh battery, only a measly 10mAh more than the square G Watch. Otherwise, everything remains the same — except that this one, due to its design, looks significantly more elegant, dapper, and dare I say, professional.
A heart rate monitor, power/sleep button on the side, a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with 512MB of RAM and 4GB internal storage complete the rest of its specs. It’s also rated IP67 for water resistance (which up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes) and comes with two interchangeable wrist straps for good measure. LG says that the G Watch R will go on sale in Q4 of this year, for an as-of-yet, undisclosed price.
