LG officially announces the G Watch R

LG officially announces the G Watch R

After teasing for a few days, LG has officially announced their round faced smartwatch competitor – the LG G Watch R. The watch will be available to view at IFA, before becoming available in Q4 later this year. The watch will feature a 1.3″ Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display, similar technology to that used in the G Flex, with a 320×320 resolution screen, which makes full use of the circular display.

Want a fancy charging dock for your LG G Watch? Aerios Moduul could be it.

Want a fancy charging dock for your LG G Watch? Aerios Moduul could be it.

There’s no doubt that the first generation LG G Watch is a functional device first, and aesthetically pleasing maybe fifth or sixth; it isn’t the most glamorous watch. The same can be said of the charging dock; it’s a black little plastic brick, and it’s rather unappealing. It doesn’t look great on the nightstand, and on the desk, it just looks a bit out of place. Enter Sydney design firm Aerios. Launched by the guys behind Gadgets 4 Geeks, Aerios has announced the Moduul range, with its first piece an upgrade to the dock for your LG G Watch. As[Read More...]

LG teases G Watch R for IFA; shows it off and makes a sly dig at the Moto 360

LG teases G Watch R for IFA; shows it off and makes a sly dig at the Moto 360

LG is continuing to tease its upcoming round smartwatch, rumoured to be awkwardly named the G Watch R, with this recent post on the company’s Google+ page teasing a reveal at IFA in early September. LG’s taken a cheeky swipe at Motorola‘s Moto 360 in their post too, claiming that the G Watch R will be the first wearable to “fully utilize its circular shape”. If true (and if LG can deliver on other fronts), that missing chunk at the bottom of the Moto 360′s screen could well prove to be its achilles heel. Commenters are pointing out the fairly[Read More...]
