LG G Watch R Review – Bringing Style and a Strong Battery Life to Android Wear

Many Android smartwatches in today’s market offers rectangular screens while the LG G Watch R, on the other hand, features a round display reminiscent to the luxurious analog timepieces. With this design choice, it immediately makes it more distinctive, albeit it does share a similar look to the Moto 360. While the Motorola’s wearable tech has a screen being cut off by a small black bar, LG’s offering goes all the way round.

LG G Watch R Review - Bringing Style and a Strong Battery Life to Android Wear

The LG G Watch R Brings a Luxurious Look to the Smartwatch Market

With its design, the LG G Watch R instantly wins the hearts of many. For many individuals, a square design for a wearable tech would let the mind immediately assume that it is of the low-cost class, no matter how premium it is. LG’s watch suggests to be more of a grown-up accessory worn on the wrist. Hence, it is an effect that supports by the faux winding knob (which is just there to turn the screen on and off). It is completed with a dive watch-style bezel.

It has a chunky form that won’t suit people who have slender wrists. However, it does weigh 62-grams which is lighter than most “smart” timepieces. It also has a comfortable strap which is easily replaceable via a standard 22-millimeter fit.

Once you turn the G Watch R on and you will be greeted with a 1.3-inch screen. Said display is a 320-pixel diameter which translates to a pixel density of 246ppi. While this number is not quite “retina sharp” quality that you may be looking for, it is already favorable for typical watch-reading distances and it still offers crisp and clear text and images.

The company has chosen to use P-OLED technology for its display. This delivers colors that “pop” off of your wrist. It has a maximum brightness which is better than most Android Wears and it is easily readable even when under direct sunlight.

However, the outer ring surrounding the display may have been a misstep with regards to its design. It does not actually rotate, although it does offer the illusion that it can. Also, the raised surround sometimes interfere with regards to navigating around the wearable tech. This creates an imbalance between hardware and software.

Aside from its overall design, the LG G Watch R offers what could be the largest battery for an Android Wear to have. Its battery cell is rated at 410mAh. The watch can therefore be used for up to 2-days and 21-hours on a single charge. If you’re in the market for a stunning Android Wear that has the battery life to stand up to constant use, then look no further.
