LG G Watch R Smartwatch Launched with Circular Display: Moto 360 Killer Now Official

Back in June, LG attempted to penetrate the wearable devices market, announcing the G Watch, which was launched to compete neck to neck with Samsung's Gear Live intelligent watch. The LG G Watch was anticipated, but it wasn't well received and failed to win over consumer sentiments. 

Now, after a span of two months, the South Korean giant LG has announced the G Watch R, a legitimate successor to the G Watch. This is LG's second attempt to capture the ever growing wearable watch segment, before the arrival of Motorola's Moto 360 and the much anticipated iWatch.

LG G Watch R Smartwatch Launched with Circular Display

If you look at the design and hardware specs, the G Watch R is considerably way ahead compared to what others are offering. As we know,  the watch is running on the Android Wear platform. But unlike LG's first-gen G Watch, the new wearable has a round circular display. In fact, the screen of the G Watch R is a 1.3-inch Plastic OLED display (P-OLED) with a resolution of 320 x 320-pixel resolution. The watch uses 100 % of the display, claims LG.

The G Watch R is powered by a 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor, coupled with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of on-board storage. The device offers a 410mAh battery fitted inside. The watch is designed to run for up to 30 minutes in one meter of water, thanks to IP67 ratings. A durable stainless steel case and an interchangeable leather strap enhance the overall look and feel of the G Watch R.

The LG-made G Watch R will be made available in key markets early in the fourth quarter of 2014. Pricing hasn't been announced yet.

Going by the early look, the G Watch R should be seen as an arch rival to the Moto 360 and Samsung's Gear S smartwatch. It is interesting to see at what price LG will launch the G Watch R in India. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
