LG's round G Watch R will be available starting October 14
Last month, we told you that the LG G Watch R could be launched on October 14 to become the most expensive Android Wear watch yet. LG today officially confirmed that the device would go on sale on that day, though it looks like this will happen only in South Korea. Even so, we should expect the new smartwatch to be released in other markets before the end of October.

As previously reported, the G Watch R will cost €299 in Europe, and - most likely - $299 in the US. In South Korea, the wearable device will be sold for 352,000 KRW, meaning around $330.

The G Watch R is the world’s first smartwatch to sport a fully round display (1.3 inches P-OLED with 320 x 320 pixels). Other than that, its specs aren’t too different from what you can find on LG’s original G Watch, including 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory, a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, and a 410 mAh battery. The new smartwatch’s body includes a stainless steel frame, and is water-resistant.
