If the Moto 360 is not the round watch of your dreams, and you are leaning more towards the G Watch R from LG, you may want to mark October
14 down on your calendar. According to the Wall Street Journal, who spoke with LG during IFA, the G Watch R will launch mid-October in select markets, with a still-unknown price.
LG made the G Watch R official last week on Wednesday, so holding off availability till October
14 may seem hurtful to potential sales, but the company may have felt pressured to announce the device before it was ready for shipping given the hype surrounding the Moto 360.
Not only did LG show off its circular wearable, as even Samsung got in on the fun with the Gear S last week, but it features more of a curved design, rather than a circular display.
If the G Watch R was on your watch list, do you think you can wait until mid October for it?
Update: The WSJ clarified that they meant “October 2014,” not October 14th, specifically.
