LG G Watch R Review: a Solid Smartwatch at a Steep Price

LG bills the G Watch R as the first smartwatch with a “full circle display,” obviously a dig at the Moto 360’s so-called “flat tire.” And the G Watch R brings more improvements too, with much higher contrast, a beefier build, and a software suite more fully stocked right out of the box. But are these improvements worth an extra $50 or $100 over its Android Wear competition? And is this hulked-out stainless steel smartwatch for you? Find out in our G Watch R video review!
