LG Electronics Philippines announces availability of LG’s newest Android wearable, the G Watch R.

The LG G Watch R made its world debut at IFA 2014, where it captured the interests of tech media because of its stylish looks and smooth, speedy performance, making it the show’s most impressive new products of the show.

The G Watch R was inspired by classical and premium timepieces. It is the world’s first classic watch-design wearable to feature a fully circular Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display. The 1.3-inch circular P-OLED display takes advantage of every pixel, producing images with stunning color and accurate viewing at all angles even under bright sunlight.

Designed and built to last, the LG G Watch R features a classic design encased in  stainless steel and aluminum and is powered by a 410mAh battery, the largest in an Android Wearable to date. The G Watch R comes equipped with a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 4GB internal storage, and 512MB  RAM.

With an Ingress Protection rating of IP67, the device is completely protected from dust and is water-resistant for up to 30 minutes at a maximum depth of one meter. The G Watch R, designed by LG with personalization in mind, is compatible with any 22mm wide watch strap.

The LG G Watch R offers six new pre-loaded watch faces and improved power savings in ambient mode. The update to Android WearTM OS will add even more features and functionality to the G Watch R, including offline music playback. Updates can be performed seamlessly through the smartphone with the owner’s permission.

“While the original G Watch was designed to be a no-nonsense, pure Android Wear device, the G Watch R was developed with a more aesthetic eye,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The G Watch R represents LG’s commitment to meld form and functionality together in perfect harmony and to create a device that not only looks great but more importantly, offers technology that makes life more convenient.”

The LG G Watch R is available from select LG Mobile dealers at P13,990.
