LG’s second smartwatch is set to launch in Korea on October 14th. The LG G Watch R features Google’s Android Wear software, a 1.3 inch round plastic OLED display, and a water resistant design.
There’s no word on when the watch will be available in the US or Europe, but with a limited launch this month, it’ll become the second Android Wear watch with a round face to hit the streets. The Motorola Moto 360 is the first.
LG’s new watch has a 320 x 320 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 4GB of storage, and 512MB of RAM.
It has a heart rate monitor, a 410mAh battery, and a 9-axis sensor. The watch features a removable leather wrist strap.
Most of those specs are the same as those for the original LG G watch with a 1.65 inch square display. But the G Watch R has an arguably more stylish design, a slightly bigger battery (the G Watch has a 400mAh battery), and it’s also expected to have a higher price tag.

FYI, the linked website says that the watch will cost 352000 KRW retail price in Korea, which is roughly $330 USD.
How large is it compared to the Moto 360 (diameter; thickness)?
Oh, look! It has a how did they call it? Digital crown?
