Announced at I/O 2014, Android Wear is Google&#39;s solution to put Android on wearables and since launch, we&#39;ve seen many manufacturers introduce several smartwatch designs to cater for everyone.</p> <p>The G Watch R is LG&rsquo;s second Android Wear smartwatch <a href="http://www.neowin.net/news/lg-g-watch-review">after the original LG G Watch</a>, launched as an alternative to the Motorola Moto 360. The latter was the first round Android Wear smartwatch and whilst LG&rsquo;s offering has some great features, is it enough to be the best round Android Wear smartwatch?</p> <h2>Design</h2> <p>The G Watch R features a 1.3 inch Full Circle P-OLED display with 320 x 320 pixels resolution and is powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC. The use of a Qualcomm processor gives LG&#39;s watch better battery performance than the Moto 360, which is powered by a TI OMAP3 processor.</p> <p>Around the outside of the P-OLED display, the G Watch R has a dial indicating minutes past the hour and on the right, there&rsquo;s a dial that acts like a power button. Like many other smartwatches, the G Watch R has interchangeable watch straps allowing you to exchange LG&rsquo;s default leather strap.</p> <p><a href="http://www.neowin.net/news/lg-g-watch-r-review---a-round-revolution">Read the complete review.</a></p> <p class="byline">This article is brought to you in partnership with Neowin.</p><p><a rel='alternate' href='http://www.techspot.com/news/60326-neowin-lg-g-watch-r-review-round-revolution.html' target='_blank'>Permalink to story.</a></p><p class='permalink'><a rel='alternate' href='http://www.techspot.com/news/60326-neowin-lg-g-watch-r-review-round-revolution.html'>http://www.techspot.com/news/60326-neowin-lg-g-watch-r-review-round-revolution.html</a></p>[/parsehtml]
