LG G Watch R hits the US next month
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.
