With the Motorola Moto 360 expected to be officially launched on September 4, 2014, LG will be coming out with a round smartwatch of its own with the LG G Watch R. The LG G Watch R will be officially unveiled a week after the Moto 360 launch.
Unlike the Motorola Moto 360, the LG G Watch R comes in a full circle design and is considered better since it looks more like a piece of jewelry rather than a smartwatch. At first, the LG Watch R was believed to be something that would replace the existing G Watch. But as it turned out, the LG G Watch R is actually pegged as the latest member for LG’s Android Wear roster.
Design-wise, many feel that the LG G Watch R is a better version when you talk about the rounded design pitch. The Moto 360 is not actually entirely round with the screen being cuts off by a horizontal gap near the bottom portion.
For now, the best you can tell from the LG G Watch R is through the teaser video that they had released. No further details or specifics are available for now aside from the fact that it would run on Android Wear and that it will have buttons on the side.
Though the announcement of the LG G Watch R does somehow spoil the coming of the Moto 360, its popularity could now come with a time constraint, especially once LG officially announces its own bet next week.
The LG G Watch R is expected to be announced at the IFA 2014 electronics trade show in Berlin which could further shed off some more specific details that many would want to find out.
