LG G Watch R fully unveiled: the first Android Wear smartwatch with a truly round display
After a bit of teasing, LG today revealed the G Watch R - the company's second Android Wear smartwatch, and the world's first to sport a perfectly round display (unlike Motorola’s Moto 360). The screen of the G Watch R is a 1.3-inch Plastic OLED (P-OLED) one with 320 x 320 pixels. LG says that this display provides “stunning image clarity” in any situation - including under bright sunlight.

Just like LG’s first Android Wear smartwatch, the G Watch R is IP67-certified, thus being dust- and water-resistant. It’ll offer several fitness apps, while also allowing users to monitor their heart rate thanks to a built-in PPG (photoplethysmography) sensor. Other features include a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory, and a 410 mAh battery. A stainless steel frame, and an interchangeable calf skin leather strap complete the stylish picture.

The LG G Watch R will be launched in select markets starting the fourth quarter of the year, for a price that hasn’t been announced. We hope to find out more about LG’s second Android Wear device at IFA 2014 next week, so make sure to check back soon for new details.
