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

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…)

LG G3 Stylus is Now Official, Will Debut Its Mid-Range Self at IFA

The LG G3 Stylus, a device that LG accidentally unveiled a couple of weeks ago at the end of a promo video, is now official and will finally make a public appearance next week at IFA. Initially, most thought the G3 Stylus was a Galaxy Note competitor, but the world quickly realized that it was more like the LG G Vista that is available at Verizon, a mid-range yet oversized phone.  (more…)

Monday Poll: Which OEM Would You Rather Purchase a Round Smartwatch From?

2014 was looking like the year of smartwatches thanks to Android Wear’s unveiling, but now OEMs are trying to make it the year of round smartwatches. The first and only notable smartwatch was the Moto 360 from Motorola, but new info from LG and Samsung has them both looking to introduce round watches in the upcoming future.

Given that consumers will now have multiple choices in this space, we would like to know which OEM you would prefer to give your hard earned money to. While we know exactly what to expect from Motorola’s premium smartwatch offering, LG and Samsung’s are a bit of mystery, but might feature a tad more plastic when compared to the Moto 360.

Below in the comments, feel free to give us an idea as to how you chose between the three OEMs.
