Most smartphones and tablets look about the same. Sure, you'll see different screen sizes and build materials, but, for the most part, they're all cut from the same cloth.

LG’s G Watch R follows closely in the footsteps of the Moto 360, opting for a more traditional, circular look rather than the square-faced designs we’ve seen in other early Android Wear smartwatches.

So far, it appears this could be the timepiece we've been waiting for since, well... since the beginning of time.  Read More
