LG G Watch R

Our first look at the LG G Watch R is live right now, giving an overview of LG's much anticipated rounded smartwatch. But if you just prefer to look at pretty pictures, we've got a complete photo gallery of the G Watch R, its display module and its charging puck waiting after the break. Enjoy!

LG G Watch R: In pictures

So is it Qi and puck charging or Puck only? I thought one of the main things about them making it better than the G Watch was it was going to have wireless charging? I suppose I need to read up some more.

Holy cow that thing looks massive on a wrist. I thought the 360 looked big, but this is a beast!

This does not look as good in these pictures as the concept pictures made it look. Looks like moto 360 for me.

Are the wrists of tech bloggers all that skinny or else this thing is chunky as heck

I like it.. I kinda been wanting a chunky watch.. And I'm glad they found a way to keep the sensor off the screen unlike Moto. Price?

That's because they made the bezels HUGE, of course they didn't have to put that little black piece. They put a huge frame around it lol.

The permanent seconds dial is an issue for me. I was hoping those were at least backlit and would dim or turnoff in notification mode. They seemed to indicate that in the teaser video. I'll still withhold judgment until I get to see it in person.

Looks like the watch Jack brought down from the beanstalk. It's like the 1980s cellphone of a smartwatch. It's something a rapper would wear on a gold chain around his neck. If I wore this, aircraft might land in my backyard.

Finally a smart watch that I would consider purchasing. I want a watch that has a masculine look to it and this does. All the other smart watches would be perfect for my wife. I've been wearing casio g-shocks and pathfinders for years and need something a bit more substantial.

I would agree, big watches are in and i love g-shocks. I still like the moto360, but this looks cool.

I agree. I like the looks of this watch. Definitely a big man's watch.

actually looks better than it seemed to in the original pictures I must admit but I still prefer the Moto 360 since this looks too much like a sports watch for me

Whaaaat the funk it that ? You could kill someone with that ! I'm glad I got the g watch that thing is ugly and way to big to wear in my job.

Excellent pictures Alex! I wanna thank you in particular for the comparison photos vs the G Watch, pretty easy to guesstimate size off that (and determine the 360 is significantly smaller, based off previous leaks that compared it to the G Watch)... The photos of the bare display are pretty nifty too.

Personally, even tho I'm still favoring the 360 (smaller size + wireless charging), I could see a lot of men preferring this watch... Bigger is the current fashion trend, and that bezel will protect display better as well. I don't think the permanent hash marks are that big a deal, clearly others do tho.

This strap spoils the look of it...looks like they put no effort at all when disagning the 'sporty' looking strap connection to the basel.

That actually looks seriously nice. I hope they add some color variations for the chassis and better strap options (of course you can always just grab something off eBay to tailor it).

Maybe a year more and smartwatches actually look great.

SORRY, but that dial is HORRIBLE. Look at the pic of it next to the original G Watch. And the device does NOT look premium at all. It looks like it's aping a premium watch, but it does not succeed. That bulky casing doesn't even look like it's stainless steel.
