LG G Watch R will be the Other Watch with a Round Display at IFA 2014

Among what comes next at IFA, Moto 360 is truly the most awaited device in Motorola’s arsenal, thanks to its distinctive round display and attractive design which most won’t mind slapping on their wrist. However, Moto 360 won’t be the only round smartwatch we get to see at IFA, LG G Watch R is coming to steal its thunder.


LG earlier launched LG G Watch as the first smartwatch running Google’s Android Wear and now it will integrate its smartwatch experience and launch a worthy rival to Moto 360 with a similar round dial.

Earlier leaks suggest that this time LG will use a Super Amoled display panel, which will help it conserve battery and provide better contrast. Will that affect already not so great outdoor visibility? That remains to be seen.

Moto 360 is expected to cost $250 and will sport 1.5 inch backlit IPS LCD display with 390 x 290 pixels and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Other features include Water resist certification, 512 MB RAM, WiFi, Bluetooth, Ambient light sensor, pedometer. Both Android Wear watches will heavily rely on Google Now for operations.

LG will however benefit from Android wear experience so far. Based on the initial images of LG G Watch R, we would say Moto 360 is still the better looking one. We will know more very soon
