LG G Watch Specs

An OLED display rounds out otherwise familiar specs in the new LG G Watch R

Now that the LG G Watch R is officially official, it's time to take a look at the pure specs.

Not surprising is that they're mostly in line with what we've come to know in the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live. (The exact Moto 360 specs are still under wraps, at least for a little while longer.) Same sort of processor, resolution and internals as the other guys.

Let's take a look at the full LG G Watch R specs:

Category Features
Chipset 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400
Display 1.3-inch P-OLED Display (320 x 320)
Memory 4GB eMMC / 512MB RAM
Battery 410mAh
Operating System Android Wear 
(compatible with smartphones running Android 4.3 and above)
Sensors 9-Axis (Gyro/ Accelerometer/ Compass), Barometer, PPG
Color Black
Other Dust and Water Resistant (IP67)

LG G Watch R specs


Probably the same as the rest, maybe a slight edge on the previous G Watch thanks to the OLED display, tho that depends largely on usage (OLED might be more efficient while idle with a black background, but also more power hungry in use, didn't do any miracles for Samsung's).

No mention of wireless charging so my sights are still firmly set on the 360.

actually my new device lives for 2 days as power user, and i think everybody gets a power user if u start using it :-) there are lots of possibilities to get a shaking wrist and at this point you are almost forced to play around with it :-) a nice add on is the step counter, specially if u never had one... anyway, the battery of the watch is not the problem but the phone battery is certainly drawn after 1 day bluethooth connection, LTE connection and sometimes GPS when searching your way through the city :-) whereas the navigation function is pretty neat and very useful, because you have never again to take out your phone and walk around like all other phone junkies :-) but as a hidden mobile phone junkie :-)

the device itself makes fun and after 1 week of using it, im still wearing it... but also the reactions on the watch from my social surroundings impressed me. All normal folks found it pretty impressive and interesting. i like it so far, lets see where the journey heads us

no. Do not swim with it. IP67 it means you can shower, wash your hands, if in a party someone pushes you in the swimming pool and little stuff like that. But actual swimming (like in sport and not just float in the water) involves A LOT more pressure than just sitting in the water and IP67 does not cover that.

As I said, actual swimming like a crawl style (that one that you push the water with your arms, exactly where your watch is) generates a lot more pressure than IP57 or IP67 is rated for. If you're just underwater (as in, hanging out and not putting pressure through it) that's what IP57 or IP67 is rated for.

IP67 = 3 feet of water for 30 Mins
you can usually push the time rate if your swimming above water, i would just be careful.

Ip67 is water resistant up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes. My galaxy s5 has the same rating l. I've seen you tube videos of people leaving their galaxy s5's under water for much longer than the 30 minutes it's rated for. So I'd say the watch would fare just as well. However, I probably wouldn't suggest swimming with it if you plan on being in deep water

The thing about the s5, you drop it on concrete by side of pool, the back cover pops off, it slides in the pool.... Well I guess it isn't waterproof anymore......

The snapdragon 400? Does that seem like overkill? I mean that's the same as the moto g

The Samsung whatever, the LG G watch and the Motorola 360 all uses the snap400. I guess it's being used as a `pretty standard` processor for the watches.
I have the LG G and it makes a smooth transition/navigation with good battery.

That image makes it look fake. It looks like a real watch, not a smart watch with screen on

Will these watches have GPS? So you can go for a run without your phone just wearing the watch and upload your run/cycle when you get home?
