LG has been rather silent about the G Watch R’s availability ever since it announced the device in late August, but today the Life’s Good crew finally broke its silence and revealed when we’ll start seeing its new Android Wear device on shelves and our wrists.
The LG G Watch R will be available “throughout Europe” in countries like France, Italy, Spain and the UK at the start of November. Launches in “key markets” such as North America, Asia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (Russia, Belarus, Armenia and more) shortly after. LG also says that customers “in select markets” will be able to buy the G Watch R from Google Play in the coming weeks.
No details on the LG G Watch R’s pricing have been shared, but LG says that that info will come out closer to the device’s launch. One thing that we do know, though, is the G Watch R’s spec list:
The LG G Watch R is the second round-faced Android Wear device that we’ve seen to date, offering a design that’s more like a mechanical watch than other Wear watches that we’ve seen to date. We’ll have to wait to try on the LG G Watch R and find out its price before making any judgments about it, but it looks like a nice piece of kit. Compared to the Moto 360, the LG G Watch R doesn’t have a black bar at the bottom of its screen, but it does have a slightly smaller display and larger bezel than Motorola’s offering
What do you think of the LG G Watch R? Are you thinking about buying one for your wrist?
