G Watch R

If you've been waiting to see how the other round Android Wear watch stacks up against the competition — today is your day. No one knows Android Wear better than our pals at Android Central, and as such, they've dropped a great review of the new LG G Watch R. It's newer, rounder, and looks more like a watch than its predecessor, but just how doe it stack up against the Moto 360, Gear Live, and the G Watch?

Whether the watch's large size and chunky aesthetics are a reason to buy or deal breaker will largely come down to personal taste. It's an item with a very distinctive look, and one that might not match your personal style, or even fit properly on your wrist.

The G Watch R isn't yet the perfect smartwatch, but the hardware and design is a good improvement over the original offering from LG. It looks more like a watch, but it still runs the young Android Wear software, which itself still has a way to go.

Spin over to Android Central to check out the review in full, and be sure to check out the goods on the Moto 360 review, Samsung Gear Live review, and of course the LG G Watch review.
