In case the reports form Korean press didn’t convince you, perhaps official word from LG will. The company has recently confirmed that the LG G Watch R will, in fact, be launching in their home country of South Korea starting next week, October 14th. Unfortunately the company still hasn’t indicated when they’ll get around to bringing the thing to Europe, North America or other regions, though history tells us they want wait too long to deliver to to the rest of us.
With that, we also don’t get final word on pricing details, though we’re sure to gain a pretty good idea once it hits retailers’ store shelves next week. The LG G Watch R is the second circular Android Wear smart watch to hit the scene, and it’s gained a lot of attention due to its sporty looks and seemingly solid build quality. Whether that’s enough to pull people away from the mesmerizing Moto 360 remains to be seen, but we sure can’t wait to see how these two stack up to each other.
