LG brings modern technology to your wrist with the G Watch R, a wearable device with a classic style that makes information easily accessible at a glance. This highly-anticipated smartwatch is available now through AT&T, Google Play Store, and at Sprint beginning November 14th.

The LG G Watch R is powered by a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 400 processor with 4 GB of storage and 512 MB of RAM. This wearable device runs on the Android Wear operating system and is compatible with Android 4.3 or higher.

The Android Wear operating system powers a wide range of convenient features that will optimize your time and make daily life more accessible. With the simple command “OK Google” you can alert the G Watch R to search, send a text, set an alarm or take notes. It can also help you out of a jam with traffic condition alerts, keep you in the loop by synching social media notifications from your smartphone, and track your wellness with an extensive suite of LG health and fitness apps. An integrated heart rate monitor helps to keep any fitness routine in shape, and with the LG G Watch R’s long battery life just a single charge can last the entire day. With the latest version of Android Wear pre-installed, you can store and play music by syncing from your Google Play account to your Bluetooth speaker or headphones -- you don’t even need your phone. 

LG boasts that the G Watch R is the first wearable Android device with a fully circular 1.3” P-OLED display that can deliver superior image clarity from any angle, even in bright sunlight. The device is dust and water resistant for quality built to withstand damage from a stormy day or everyday wear and tear. Durability extends beyond the shell with a 22mm band that’s interchangeable to customize the look and feel to fit your ever-evolving style.
