LG is preparing to launch its second smartwatch featuring Google’s Android Wear software… and this time it’s round.
The LG G Watch was one of the first Android Wear devices to go on sale when it launched this summer for $229. The company’s new model features similar specs, but the LG G Watch R looks a bit more like a traditional wristwatch since it has a smaller, round watch face instead of a square display.
The watch features a 1.3 inch, 320 x 320 pixel plastic OLED display which LG says uses 100 percent of the watch face (which may be a dig at the upcoming Motorola Moto 360 which has a black bar at the bottom of the circle).
LG’s G Watch R has a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage, just like the original G Watch.
It features an IP67 rated dust and water resistant design, a 9-axis sensor, a heart rate monitor, and a 410mAh battery.
The watch comes with a 22mm calf skin leather strap, but the wristband is removable if you want to swap it out with a different strap.
LG will show off the G Watch R at the IFA show in Berlin next week. The company hasn’t yet revealed a price or release date.
Update: Apparently it will sell for 299 Euros in Europe.
