Best Buy takes $50 off the price of the LG G Watch
With the LG G Watch R bringing a round face to the manufacturer's Android Wear powered smartwatch lineup, Best Buy has decided to cut the price of the original LG G Watch. The big box retailer has sliced $50 off the price of the original LG timepiece. That brings the price of the rectangular wearable, available in black or white, down to $179.99.

The smartwatch space is becoming increasingly crowded. The other day, Samsung introduced the Samsung Gear S smartwatch that features 3G connectivity. This allows the watch to make or take phone calls, without having to be paired to a smartwatch. That isn't the case with the LG G Watch, which asks you to sync the watch and its 1.65 inch LCD screen, to an Android device running Android 4.3 or higher. Bluetooth 4.0 is employed for this task.

The LG G Watch is voice activated, and sends you notifications, including updates from your apps. And if you want to keep your updates on the down lo, you can set the alerts to vibrate on your wrist instead of making a sound. A built-in pedometer keeps track of all the walking you do in the course of a day.

The LG G Watch is powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. The 400mAh battery gives you 28 hours of use before requiring a recharge. And it can be on your wrist right now, at a $50 discount, thanks to Best Buy. In case you're interested, the LG G Watch R is set to arrive sometime in the fourth quarter. Pricing is unknown.
