LG G Watch R
This round smartwatch goes on sale in the UK today and the United States will follow next month, but it will be soon available for pre-order via Google Play.

LG Electronics announced earlier today that its round smartwatch known as G Watch R will hit retail sites throughout Europe in early November while North America, Asia, and the CIS will follow "soon after." Since this Android Wear-powered wearable can be already pre-ordered online in the UK, it is almost certain that US customers will be able to place their orders via Google Play in November.

LG G Watch R is a device "designed and built to last" that has the following highlights:

  • Processor: 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400
  • Display: 1.3-inch P-OLED with 320X320 pixels
  • Memory/Storage: 512 MB RAM; 4 GB eMMC internal storage
  • Sensors: compass, gyroscope, accelerometer, barometer, heart rate monitor
  • Operating system: Android Wear
  • Compatibility: Android 4.3 and above
  • Battery: 410 mAh

This wearable is only available in black and has been IP67-certified for protection against water and dust. As usual, pricing and additional information will be available locally as the G Watch R reaches new markets. We will get back to it as soon as it becomes available for pre-order in the US.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
