LG G Watch R seems to be the most expensive Android Wear smartwatch yet
LG unveiled its G Watch R less than 24 hours ago, saying that the device will be available to buy later this year, without mentioning how much it’s going to cost. Luckily, LG Germany issued a press release of its own, revealing that the smartwatch will be launched starting October for a suggested retail price of €299 - thus being the most expensive Android Wear device yet. We’re assuming that the G Watch R’s price for the US market will hover around $300, though things may change before the watch is released.

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:
