LG G WATCH R
£ 199 lg.com
With the G Watch R, LG has made the sensible choice of replacing the square display of its predecessor with a round face. This and its chunky design make it look more like a regular sports watch than any other current smartwatch does. The drawback, as with other round-faced watches, is that the display sometimes cuts text off from apps designed for a square face. This is likely to become less of an issue over time as a wider range of apps is created but it’s worth noting. Its heart rate monitor, barometer and pedometer mean the sporty look isn’t just for show. The G Watch R runs on Android Wear so you can pair it with any fairly recent Android phone, and its 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor and 512MB of RAM make it a quick, responsive piece of kit that won’t crash constantly.
