LG Teases G Watch R!
Guys – this is big news! LG just teased what appears to be their second Android Wear watch – just two months after its first one went on sale. But this time… a circular design! The company uploaded a video today to YouTube teasing a round “G Watch R” that will be announced at IFA 2014 in Berlin next week. Hit up the video below to take a look at this beast!
Obviously, LG must have been working on this device at the same time as the original LG G Watch. Which begs the question… why are they releasing it now? My best guess – they used the original, square G Watch as a test to see how the public would respond to their device with Android Wear and are now releasing their own beast to basically troll Motorola. I would guess that LG is doing this to get rid of all the hype Motorola has been making over the past year or however long its been.
Anyways – we probably won’t see that much difference in terms of specs between the G Watch and the G Watch R – but only time will tell on that one. But if LG can address the issues of the original G Watch (better battery life and an improved display), will you buy this watch? Or are you still a die hard Moto 360 fan?
Let me know what you think of LG’s teaser and which smartwatch you will be picking up in September in the comment section below!
