LG G Watch R seems to be the most expensive Android Wear smartwatch yet
posted by Florin T. / Aug 28, 2014, 3:10 PM
While its internals are similar to those of LG’s first Android Wear smartwatch (the G Watch), the G Watch R looks completely different, sporting a stainless steel frame and a perfectly round 1.3-innch P-OLED display - thus resembling a traditional wrist watch. Do you think ~$300 is too much for the G Watch R? Let us know in the comments!
LG will showcase the new smartwatch next week at IFA 2014, and we’ll make sure to check it out live. Until then, in case you haven’t seen LG’s official G Watch R renders, here they are:

I think I'll be getting this one if battery life is good

Well, it is a nice looking watch, but LG's last watch gave user's burns and had terrible battery life. Even though this is a fine looking watch, I think I have more faith in Motorola's products as months and months after buying the Moto X, I'm still more impressed with it than the Galaxy S5 or LG G3...

"I think I'll be getting this one if battery life is good" What is good battery life to you? I don't think I'd like to charge a watch more than once a week. Once a month charging would be even better.

Those renders look so fake. At leats I know how Moto360 is bc a friend of mine already has it. (Don't ask me how). I'm holding my breath for that one instead..

That plus we know that the Moto 360 has been refined for over a year where as these are largely reactions to the 360. Chances of these having glitches and quality issues is that much higher due to that.

Nope both the 360 and the R are stainless steel Except the R only has leather strap, the 360 also has stainless steel strap as well But I'd also agree that we should wait for proper working device instead of these renders

People shouldn't be complaining about pricing since in reality its cheaper than some watches that do a lot less. My citizen is more than double the cost, lol.

Your Citizen is likely made of much higher quality components and will last much longer. I am not throwing away my Citizen anytime soon and neither should you. I would look up exactly what Citizen I have but I am too lazy for that. I paid $450 for mine and have had it for 2 years. It still looks brand new and I still find myself admiring it. I love watches...

This looks like a great ordinary watch, but where's the android wear?.. I'll wait to see the real deal

While I like the 360, I wonder how much the bottom gap will bother me... I love that this is a full circle watch. If the battery life is at least a day or two, I think I'm fine with it. Gah. I was planning on ordering the 360 day one. Now I'm thinking I should wait :(

Better spending 300$ on a smart watch than 1,000$ on a ROLEX

The Rolex will last you a lifetime if cared for, and might even go up in value if you don't damage it... It's true you get more potential use out of a smartwatch, but keep in mind the pros and cons.
