AT&T is now offering the LG G Watch R at just $99 through its online store
The LG G Watch R launched back in October 2014 at a debut price of $299, but since then, LG went ahead and launched yet another rounded smartwatch, the LG G Watch Urbane. Naturally, since a newer model is available, we expected the G Watch R to be offered through special promotions at discounted prices during this summer, but $99 is a better than deal than we've previously anticipated.
The LG G Watch R comes with a 1.3-inch P-OLED display with a resolution of 320 by 320 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 512MB of RAM, 4GB of integrated storage space, and a 410mAh battery. Although the Motorola Moto 360 was the first smartwatch with a round form factor, the G Watch R was the first smartwatch to come with a fully rounded display (the Moto 360 comes with a blank portion towards the bottom of the display).
The smartwatch is in the process of being updated to Android Wear 5.1.1, but the G Watch R will not get Wi-Fi capabilities with the update. LG says that it will issue a special update in the third quarter that will allow it to receive notifications over verified Wi-Fi network.
