The LG G Watch R, the other round watch, is finally coming to the world. Well, at least its roll out globally is starting. The first set of locales to have access to LG’s second Android Wear device will be France, Italy, Spain and the UK. You guys in those countries should start to see the device popping up at retailers in the first part of November. Shortly after the release LG has plans to push it to Asia North America. They say “soon after”, so that could mean later in November or December. Hopefully they push it out in time for Christmas in the states. It is also set for release on the Play Store in the weeks ahead.

The LG G Watch R brings in many of the same hardware specs we have all heard of before. Th carries a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 512MBs of RAM, 4GB internal storage, 410 mAh battery, and a round 1.3-inch P-OLED display at 320 x 320. It also carries a heart rate monitor, barometer and 9-Axis sensor.

“While the original G Watch was designed to be a no-nonsense, pure Android Wear device, the G Watch R was developed with a more aesthetic eye,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The G Watch R represents LG’s commitment to meld form and functionality together in perfect harmony and to create a device that not only looks great but more importantly, offers technology that makes life more convenient.”

A nice benefit to the LG G Watch R compared to a few of the other guys on the market today is the watch band. It is compatible with any 22mm watch strap. Which leaves your strap options nearly limitless. LG cleverly left any price tags off the press release, but we have heard talk that it should be around $300. That would put it on par with the Moto 360, and be slightly higher than their current G Watch.

Have you been holding off on splurging for the Moto 360 to get your hands on the LG G Watch R? The wait is almost over.
