LG’s new G Watch R looks like an Analog dialed watch rather than a smartwatch. It is different from smartwatches that we have seen before. LG had G watch that literally had no design elements to it. But this new watch is definitely beautiful and would compliment to the fashion element of someone wearing it.
LG has released more images in the smartwatch that includes models posing with G watch R around their wrist. Earlier in the day LG had published the press release where they announced the smartwatch. It is will be difficult to distinguish between an analog watch and this LG’s new smartwatch. LG has styled it elegantly so that even the upcoming Moto 360 will have to run for its money.
The watch, as you know comes in round shape, with a 1.3 inch P-OLED display. According to LG, the display is absolutely bright and clear, and is easily visible under direct sunlight. The display is fixed over a stainless steel rim, while rest of the part is made of durable plastic. The strap is made of calf leather.
LG G watch R is powered by a 1.2 GHz snapdragon 400 processor along with up to 512 MB of RAM. It comes with 4 GB of internal storage memory. The watch is IP67 certified, it can survive 30 minutes under water to a depth of up to 1 meter. The watch runs Android wear, which means it is compatible with Android apps that are made for Android wear. The watch is compatible with smartphones that run Android OS v 4.3 or higher.
The price of the watch is not out yet. It is expected in the market in Quarter 4 this year, which means it is not so long before we have one on our wrist. The quarter 4 of 2014 could well be the period of wearable, only time would tell. There is enough to bother for the conventional watch makers, with the progress being made by Android device makers.
