A wearable for discerning users Building on the rich history and technical sophistication of classic timepieces, LG is introducing the LG G Watch R, the first fully circular watch running the latest Android Wear operating system.

DESIGNThe LG G Watch R bears the hallmarks of classic elegance, reminiscent of the craftsmanship of yesteryear.

The circular watch face allows the Android wearable to maintain the time-honoured curved design, all wrapped in a durable stainless steel body. The modern interface relies on a simple, full touchscreen control.

In maintaining the rich tradition of watches, the G Watch R comes with an interchangeable 22mm calf skin leather strap that adds to the modern prestige, but gives owners the freedom of changing to a strap that suits their needs.

WATCH FACE

Timepieces cannot escape from the monotony of having only one display, but the LG G Watch R is capable of switching displays to meet the demands of a seasoned professional.

Aside from time, this chronograph is capable of displaying the information of moon phases, world time, compass directions, heart rates and even calorie count.

The World Clock watch face is capable of displaying times in three different time zones, while the Hiking watch face can be used as a compass to track location and offer directional information.

The Fitness watch face works with the built-in photoplethysmography or PPG sensor that measures heart rate, to provide fitness tracking information to the user.

All of this is on top of the smart notifications that the LG G Watch R brings, such as incoming calls, SMS messages, calendar appointments and weather forecasts.

HARDWARE

Powering the P-OLED display is a powerful 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, aided by 512MB of RAM. The timepiece bears 4GB of internal memory and is capable of running a suite of compatible apps from the Google Play Store.

With an Ingress Protection Rating of IP67, the timepiece is designed to function for up to 30 minutes when placed in water that is 1m deep. It comes with a 410mAh battery.

The LG G Watch R has also been designed to work with all Android devices running Android Jelly Bean 4.3 and above. It will be available in Singapore soon.
