LG G Watch R officially announced ahead IFA launch

Here comes the first Android Wear smartwatch that is having a round dial and incredible looks. We are talking about LG’s new G Watch R where “R” stands for round. Since its very first appearance, users started comparing its with Moto 360(true competitor) and now we got it before IFA launch. LG G Watch R comes running Android Wear through which user can connect it to any Android v4.3+ smartphone. Do expect some great new Google Now features to land up. LG do have something to tell you about its design and fitness features:

With Android Wear™ at its core, the LG G Watch R delivers essential and relevant information exactly at the right time and place. With a suite of LG health and fitness apps, users can also monitor their heart rate with the support of the embedded photoplethysmography (PPG) sensor. And the smart notifications provide users with important reminders of missed calls and messages, upcoming meetings, events, and local weather forecasts. 

With an artisanal elegance, the LG G Watch R boasts a refined aesthetic that is reminiscent of traditional timepieces. Replete with a circular watch face, this elegantly crafted Android wearable has classic curves encased in a strong, durable stainless steel frame and carries a suite of watch faces that are accessible with a simple touch of the display. Its interchangeable 22mm calf skin leather strap also complements its overall aesthetic, giving it an air of modern prestige.

That is something really cool, we loved its “strap” part. In terms of its specifications, it comes with:

  • 1.3 inch Plastic-OLED display with 320×320 pixels(will help you under bad sunlight conditions)
  • 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB internal storage
  • 410 mAh battery(more than enough for this small display)
  • Black variant only
  • IP67 certification for water and dust resistivity

LG G Watch R is all set to compete with iWatch and Moto 360, both coming next month.
