LG shows off new high-spec G Watch R

LG’s G Watch only landed back in June but the firm’s already launching its next wearable, the G Watch R.

Due to be fully unveiled at this year’s IFA tradeshow, LG’s new timepiece is the world’s first smartwatch that features a full circle plastic-OLED display that makes use of 100% of the screen’s real estate.

LG reckons its 1.3-in P-OLED display produces ‘stunning image clarity’ even outdoors, and boasts impressive clarity from all viewing angles.

Computing heft is provided by a beefy 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and a hefty 410mAh li-ion battery.

These are impressive specs for a smartwatch, trumping the internals of Samsung’s Gear S, also revealed today.

The G Watch R piggybacks on Google’s Android Wear OS, giving it full access to the Google Play Store’s raft of wearable-friendly apps.

It’s also a sturdy fella, touting an ingress protection of IP67 meaning it’ll trundle along at a one-metre water depth for up to 30 minutes at a time.

LG says it’s tried hard to make sure its new ticker looks stylish, promising ‘an air of modern prestige.’

“What we’ve noticed in the year of the wearable is that this is a category that can’t be compared to smartphones and tablets,” says Dr Jong-seok Park, LG’s CEO.

“Wearables are also accessories and consumers will want more than one to choose from. So we wanted to complement the modern design of the original G Watch with the classic look of the G Watch R.”

The South Korean company says the G Watch R will be available in ‘key markets’ started in early Q4 this year. Prices and avalaibility will be announced locally at a later date.

Samsung reveals its curved Gear S smartwatch


Samsung’s unveiled a new addition to its smartwatch line-up with the Gear S, a ‘next generation’ wearable. The firm reckons its new timepiece ‘expands the smartphone experience to the wrist’ since it ships with a built-in 3G modem. This means the watch functions in much the same way as a smartphone, but for your wrist. The Gear S sports a 2-inch curved Super AMOLED display which can display the usual smartwatch fare like notifications and messages. Sammy says the ‘chic’ aesthetic is designed to contour around the wrist for optimal comfort. Customisable screen options and changeable straps are also on offer if the base set-up doesn’t suit. The Gear S runs off Samsung’s own TIzen OS instead of operating on Google’s ever-popular Android Wear. Inside you’re looking at a dual-core 1GHz CPU, 512MB of memory and 4GB of storage, plus a 300mAh li-ion battery boasting 2 days of usage. Aside from 3G, the watch also touts Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, making the Gear S a bona fide wireless smart hub. A raft of features are packed into the Gear S, including GPS, fitness sensors, S Health features, as well as wearable apps like Nike+ Running. There’s also a 24-hour ‘news and views’ service called FastFT, designed by The FInancial Times, which pairs with speedy-reading tech Spritz for quick-fire current affairs. Samsung’s also announced the Gear Circle, which sports a magnetic lock to ‘clasp around the user’s neck’ when not in use, that can vibrate to alert you of notifications and incoming calls. This device will pair to a smartphone, allowing users to receive calls, listen to music, and make voice commands, although we’re not yet sure what it looks like.
