AT&T is now offering the LG G Watch R at just $99 through its online store
The G Watch R, the first LG smartwatch with a round form factor, is now available for just $99 over at the AT&T online store. That's $200 off the usual retail price, and a good price overall given the quality of this Android Wear smartwatch.

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).

As far as the design is concerned, this is one of the best-looking smartwatches currently available on the market, and it's also IP67 certified as dust and water resistant. For more details about the wrist piece, make sure to check our full LG G Watch R review.

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.

By heading to the source below, you can purchase the LG G Watch R for just $99 from AT&T's online store, with the option of having the device available for in-store pickup.

This has WiFi as well, so when 5.1.1 lollipop lands on this device, then it will be WiFi capable as well. Really what else can they add to this device to make it better?

You can get 2-3 days out of the LG G Watch R right now. If you want a week on a smart watch, then get a Pebble. However you won't be getting a P-OLED display, you will be getting a lower resolution e-ink display. Not to mention you will be getting a 180 MHz MCU instead of a 1.2 GHz CPU. Also you will be getting MB's of storage vs GB's found in the LG G Watch R. So the trade off is better battery life vs more functionality. Right now the LG G Watch R has the features and functionality. Besides for $99. People would be stupid to turn down that deal.

Don't blame phoneArena. They're too busy making articles based on Google I/O

This was sold out hours before this article was even posted. Talk about click bait. How about some fact checking before you waste everyone's time?

Great deal. Can imagine it selling out in a matter of minutes even seconds at that price.

$99 dollars and it looks 50 million times better than an Apple Watch at $349. So what are the Apple fans tripping on even entertaining a purchase of an Apple watch?

Man they really must want to kill the smartwatch market! I bought mine 2 days after it was released in October for $300 and now 7-8 months later its 1/3 the price. Its going to be hard selling them for a premium when you can just wait a few months and get one super cheap. No I' m not butt hurt, my job paid for the watch but I would be if I had paid my own money.
