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.

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…)
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.

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.
Rumors of a new LG smartwatch making its debut at IFA in Berlin over the first week of September popped up a week ago. Those are no longer rumors, as LG unveiled an official teaser this morning for its latest smartwatch that will indeed be shown off at IFA. And guess what? It will be a round smartwatch. Call it the G Watch R or G Watch Round or whatever you feel like, one thing is certain – the Moto 360 now has a competitor in the round smartwatch space. (more…)

According to Korea Times, who source an unidentified LG official, the Korea-based manufacturer is almost finished on the second version of the G Watch, its Android Wear-powered smartwatch that was made available only a couple of months ago. Reportedly titled G Watch 2, the smartwatch is apparently a bit more high-end, set to compete with Apple’s upcoming “iWatch” device.
While the LG official claims that the G Watch 2’s unveiling is set for IFA, it was not specified if the watch would see a global unveiling or simply a client-only behind-closed-doors unveiling for VIPs. The one thing made certain was that it would be ready in time for IFA, though. (more…)
