We finally had chance to see the LG G Watch R in person here at the IFA 2014 trade show in Berlin. We walked away incredibly impressed with what LG designed, and it’s amazing to see just how much better the G Watch R is compared to the rather boring G Watch. We decided to film a video just to show you how the two look side-by-side and you’ll notice the differences in build quality instantly.
The G Watch R has a steel frame, a much brighter P-AMOLED display that’s easy to see and it actually looks like a watch, as opposed to an awkward plastic rectangle that just sits on your wrist and glows every time you get a notification (like the G Watch). No word yet on an official release date or price, but this is definitely a premium smartwatch.
Motorola’s Moto 360 is going to have some serious competition. Check out the video above for a quick comparison between LG’s two Android Wear smartwatches.
