Deal: LG G Watch in White or Black is $179 at Best Buy, $50 Off

Best Buy slashed the price of the LG G Watch by $50 this weekend, dropping it to $179 in either black or white. That right there, is a pretty good deal for one of the original Android Wear devices, which originally retailed for $229. In fact, it still is $229 through Google Play.

We reviewed the G Watch and came away interested in the future of Android Wear as a platform, but were a little bored with the device’s design. Also, keep in mind that LG just announced their new premium round version of the G Watch, the G Watch R, which should put this device to shame. But, if you want in on the Android Wear game, this is the best deal in town.

Comparison: LG G Watch R vs. Moto 360 vs. Samsung Gear S

Last night, the tech industry was treated to two new smartwatches from LG and Samsung, the G Watch R and Gear S. Both will go head-to-head with the Moto 360, a watch that is easily the most anticipated in the history of smartwatches, thanks to its round display. It’s a good time to be a smartwatch watcher.

We aren’t sure what has taken Motorola so long to release the 360 or provide us with official details on its features, but in that time, LG managed to create and unveil their own round watch, while Samsung attempted to do the same. The Moto 360 should still hit store shelves before either of those, though, so we wanted to put it up against the other two, to help you decide if it is still the watch for you (most of you are saying it is) or if waiting it out is the better option.   (more…)

Wednesday Poll: LG G Watch R or Moto 360?

Now that the LG G Watch R, LG’s new round smartwatch (pictured above), is official, we can’t help but ask for your opinions on it. More importantly, we want to know how you think it stacks up to Motorola’s yet-to-be-fully-revealed Moto 360. Both are made of premium materials (stainless steel and leather), both look much more desirable than the rest of the Android smartwatches on the market, and both look like real watches first, smartwatches second.

The G Watch R packs in a P-OLED display and will arrive in Q4. The Moto 360 carries an edge-to-edge, almost infinity-like display, coupled with stainless and chamfered edges, but should be here much sooner than Q4.

As of tonight, with the unveiling of the G Watch R, which one are you leaning towards?

LG G Watch Round Stops at FCC as Model LG-W110

At the beginning of this week, a new smartwatch from LG with a round face was nothing more than a rumor that was somewhat difficult to believe. Fast forward to today and we have both video and image teasers from LG for a watch that is indeed round and will be officially unveiled at IFA next week. It’s name could be G Watch R or R Watch or something completely different, but it is coming. To make matters even more official, the watch has already stopped by the FCC under model number LG-W110(more…)

LG’s New Round G Watch Gets Another Teaser, Watch Almost Fully in View

LG posted a new image of their round G Watch to Facebook late last night, an image that tries its best to hide the actual watch without really hiding it. I say that because the image is of the watch surrounded by dark, but with a bright light shining over its shoulder that attempts to distract us from the prize. Thankfully, a little tweaking in any image editing program lets you see the watch in full form, for the most part. We have done that for you below.  (more…)
