LG G Watch R could retail for 299 euro

On the heels of LG announcing the G Watch R, a German press release for the new smartwatch may have let slip as to just how much you can expect to shell out this fall should you want to get your hands on one. According to the release, the G Watch R will retail for a "recommended" price of 299 euros — a full 100 euros over the cost of the G Watch. As always with these types of devices, regional rates apply. The G Watch R will most likely be more expensive in the U.S. as well, but probably not the straight conversion of $393 in this case.

The LG G Watch R will be available in Germany from October at a recommended retail price of 299 euros. At IFA in Berlin Until September 10 at the LG booth in Hall 11.2 already admire the G Watch R on 5.

The release also states that the G Watch R will be available in Germany from October (which we pretty much knew already), so just a few more months before the R officially hits the streets. We'll be live and in color at IFA in Berlin to grab plenty more on the G Watch R however, so stay tuned.
