Do I really need to say anything? The thing is beautiful!

But anyway. LG has lifted the lid on its latest venture into the smartwatch market and boy are we impressed. The LG G Watch R uses all the same innards as its predecessor, so you’ll find the same 4GB of storage, Snapdragon 400 processor and 512MB of RAM all available to you. But LG has listened to consumer feedback and made some big changes in other areas.

For one, the G Watch R actually looks like a watch you would wear and now includes a stylish circular interface. It’s also predominantly made from stainless steel, which should bump up the price tag a fair amount too. We expect to hear more from LG about their new smartwatch at IFA next week.

The LG G Watch R will be available from October onwards, but no news on pricing yet. If you didn’t know already, Samsung has also announced their next smartwatch, the Samsung Gear S, which you can read more about here.
