Together with the round face you get on the G Watch R you also get stainless steel frames to go around it. The display on it is not the normal LCD, its P-OLED which is supposed to be view-able even under direct sunlight while offering greater viewing angles which is important in a watch. The 1.3 inches display has 320 x 320 pixel and also packing some serious hardware inside as well. For starters it has a 1.2 GHz clocked Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 coupled with 512MB of RAM. It may sound modest but remember this is not a smartphone; it is a smartwatch so with a processor like that it should be able to handle the usual Android Wear tasks without breaking a sweat. The 410mAh battery packed to juice this thing up as well is supposed to last longer than the current outgoing LG G Watch. It will have 4GB of storage to keep some important stuff in your smartwatch as well.
