LG teases a rounded smartwatch. It will be reportedly called the LG G Watch R.
The tech analysts were right when they said that smartwatches will be the next thing. That "next big thing" is already here, and Google played a crucial role to its fulfillment with Android Wear, the promising platform for wearables released in June.
Now LG is teasing its own flagship smartwatch, reportedly named the G Watch R (R for round). LG Mobile has released a new teaser detailing what appears to be a rounded smartwatch that looks similar to the Moto 360. As what you would expect from a teaser, details are limited, except for the rounded corners.
LG already announced its first smartwatch at Google I/O this year. But according to Engadget, the LG G Watch was simply a proof of concept. LG's real bet, Engadget says, is the G Watch R. That could be possible.
LG could be using the G Watch to attract developers and to improve the prototype. That would make the G Watch R the finished product. But, we could be wrong. LG could end up launching two or more wearables at IFA 2014 next month.
