LG G Watch R arriving on December 1
Announced back in August, LG is finally releasing the LG G Watch R in the Philippines this December. Our source points to a possible launch date of December 1 but that’s still subject to when the BOC (Customs) will send them out of the ports.
This 2nd-generation smartwatch from LG succeeds the original G Watch (read our review here) which has a square face. The G Watch R has a rounded face with OLED display, thus the R suffix in the name.
LG G Watch R specs:
1.3-inch P-OLED Display @ 320×320 pixels
1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400
4GB internal storage
9-Axis (Gyro/ Accelerometer/ Compass)
photoplethysmography (PPG) sensor – to monitor heartbeat
Dust and Water Resistant (IP67)
Android Wear OS
The original G Watch sold for US$229 in the US Play Store and also released in the Philippines a couple of months ago at Php8,990. We’re hoping the LG G Watch R will be sold at the same price point.
