LG G Watch R Urbane conversion 2

After scoping out the recently announced LG Watch Urbane, some LG G Watch R owners may have been left with feelings of buyers remorse. With a smooth metallic finish, our own Quentyn Kennemer felt the watch was the best looking smartwatch to date. But did you know that underneath the LG G Watch R’s matte black exterior was an Urbane just waiting to be revealed?

After seeing images of the Urbane, one resourceful G Watch owner took matters into his own hands. A sheet of fine grit sandpaper and a little elbow grease later, this brilliant do-it-yourselfer managed to successfully convert his G Watch into the Urbane — well, for the most part.

The Urbane does have a less prominent ring without the dial around the watch’s glass, as well as a slightly less chiseled exterior. But hey, this is damn close and we think it looks great.

What do you guys think? Anyone else thinking about doing something similar with their LG G Watch R?
