Ahead of its IFA 2014 launch, LG launches a teaser of its G Watch R.
Motorola will not be the only one launching a round-faced smartwatch at the IFA in Berlin next week. LG has launched a teaser on YouTube showing off its latest G Watch R with a circular design. The 30-second teaser shows glimpses of the features that the smartwatch will offer.
While LG has not released any official details about the smartwatch, the official launch will be at the IFA in Berlin. The video gives users a sneak peak of the features like a distance meter, a compass and a digital step counter. The video focusses mainly on its perfect circular design which is similar to the Moto 360.
The G Watch R is a successor to the original G Watch that was launched in March 2014. Like all the other smartwatches, the G Watch R is also going to be powered by Google’s Android Wear.
LG has timed the launch in a way that the G Watch R is out within hours of Motorola launching their Moto 360 – taking away all the hype that Motorola had created in the last few months.
Along with having a round dial, the LG G Watch R will have a button on the side.
LG’s G Watch R is not the only smartwatch being launched at the IFA – ASUS will also be coming out with a smartwatch of their own, along with Motorola’s Moto 360.
