LG G Watch R

IFA 2014

This morning LG once again gave us a sneak peek at its upcoming rounded smartwatch, the LG G Watch R, in the form of an official teaser image. As it is, the image shows us the outline of the circular timepiece, but little detail beyond that. However thanks to the magic of Photoshop we've been able to bring out some of the details from darker sections of the image, revealing parts of the watch's body that couldn't be seen in the original.

As we saw briefly in the first promotional video, the G Watch R looks much more like a traditional metal timepiece than its rectangular predecessor, with a chunky, raised trim and a button on the right-hand side. We can also see a little of the strap in this brightened image, though it's tough to make out much fine detail. Regardless, the LG G Watch R is shaping up to be one of the better-looking smartwatches we've seen thus far, and we'll be live from Berlin next week to bring you full coverage of it.

Are you tempted by LG's new circular creation, or are you still holding out for ASUS' mystery watch or the Moto 360? Share your thoughts in the comments.
