LG G Watch R: A Round Wrist Watch To Play With Bike 360

The Bike 360 is the first device with Android Wear, but certainly not the last: the LG G Watch R has truly circular screen without black border at the bottom; and has a ring around the screen, equal to that of an analog clock.

The LG G Watch R has a P-OLED screen of 1.3 inches, which is apparently well visible even under strong light. Inside, we have a Snapdragon processor 1.2 GHz, 400 of 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of storage, and a battery of 410mAh (greater than in G original Watch and Samsung Gear Live).

The clock also includes a heart rate monitor and, like any Android device Wear until today, it is waterproof up to 1 m depth for up to 30 minutes. It is made of stainless steel (no plastic!) and your leather strap can be replaced.

As the face of the watch, you will notice the absence of a black spot at the bottom, as we see in the Moto 360. Motorola brought together all the components of the screen, but this area is sometimes very noticeable:

It’s something that LG is excited to highlight, saying G Watch R is the first wearable wearing “100% of your circular screen”. The components must be below the rim which refers to an analog clock.

In fact, and this edge? Yes, the marks of seconds/minutes/hours are entered physically, that is, you can’t “switch off” (or remove). So if you choose to display the time in digital format, G Watch R must seem a little silly. But why use a digital face in a round screen so beautiful?

G Watch R will be available in the fourth quarter, and your price will be announced at the launch. The Gizmodo Brazil will be in the IFA fair in Berlin, where we can experience the clock next week. [LG Newsroom]
