LG G Watch: First Smart Watch With “Real” Round Screen

LG has launched G Watch R, whose biggest novelty is a round screen and therefore a design more like a traditional wristwatch.

When Google announced its new operating system Android Wear for wearable electronics such as watches were the LG and Motorola, who was the first to show up new devices. Of the two, however, it was clear that Motorola’s Watch, Moto 360, that drew the most attention-because it was the first smartwatch with a round touch screen.

Now, LG unveiled another clock, G Watch R, which is almost identical to the regular G Watch with the exception that the screen is round. According to LG, the world’s first smart watch with a genuine round screen, a claim that is based on the fact that its competitor Moto 360 does not fill the entire screen area, but has a small black box in the lower part, anything LG avoided by instead making the frames slightly thicker.

We twist and turn of the clock on the show floor in Berlin and can see that the watch sits comfortably and has a good flow in the interface, even if just clock we test drive a demo mode that makes it somewhat difficult to get full control of. On the underside there is an optical pulse counters for those using the clock as a training tool, as well as contact points for the watch’s charging station.
LG G Watch R will be launched in select markets during the fourth quarter, but it is not clear if Sweden is included or not. The price is not published, but in order to compete with Moto 360 we would guess at about 2 000 to 3 000 SEK.
