All about the LG Watch R Smartwatch

LG Watch R

LG has officially announced its round form factor Android Wear the LG Watch R, after last week’s teaser. So at last no more teasers. This is the second round entry we’ve seen this year, after the Moto 360 being the other. And it looks like folks are going to have some hard choices to make later this year. Let’s look at the spec sheet

  • 1.3-inch P-OLED Display (320 x 320)
  • 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 4GB eMMC of internal storage
  • A 410mAh Battery
  • Android Wear 
(compatible with smartphones running Android 4.3 and above)
  • 9-Axis (Gyro/ Accelerometer/ Compass), Barometer, PPG
  • A heart-rate monitor
  • Fitness tracker
  • Dust and Water Resistant (IP67)

The LG G Watch R won’t be available until October — fourth-quarter 2014 is all we’ve got at this point, and it wouldn’t surprise us in the least to see it launch alongside the L version of Android — and we don’t yet know the price.
