The LG G Watch R sneak peek with detailed specs

The South Korean company is all set to announce their first round display wearable smartwatch running the dedicated Android Wear operating system for smart-watches, the Moto 360 being the other. And it looks like folks are going to have some hard choices to make later this year for sure.

Official at IFA the LG G Watch R will go live but won’t be available until October in market — fourth-quarter 2014 is all we have got at this point, and it wouldn’t wonder us in the least to see it launch alongside the L version of Android — also we don’t have any idea about the price as of now, just mark 5th-10th of September to get everything.

They have given many reasons to grab this device, no doubt Moto 360 is eye-catching and can attract people very easily but the LG G Watch R uses every part of the display, tucking the connectors and the like behind the bezel of the watch. The body is stainless steel.

LG’s using a 1.3-inch P-OLED display panel with a resolution of 320×320 pixels. LG says you’ll get “stunning image clarity even under bright sunlight” — that’s been a highlight issue with Android Wear watches thus far, so we are also excited to see.

G Watch R is powered by a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor. Includes 4GB internal memory, with decent 512 MB of RAM. G Watch R has largest battery we have seen so far in a smart-watch which is 410 mAh. Sensor-wise, we’re looking at an accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, plus a barometer (an altimeter widget shown up on a watch display in one of LG’s teasers) and a heart-rate sensor.
