LG G Watch R is, as already revealed, a sports watch that features a full circular display and packs the following specs and features:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC

  • Operating system: Android Wear, compatible with smartphones running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean or higher
  • Battery/Autonomy: Lithium-ion 410 mAh; about 36 hours of regular use

The G Watch R is IP67-certified for protection against the elements as most of its competitors. It can monitor the heart rate of its wearer and also has a compass, gyroscope, barometer and an accelerometer.

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.
