We got a pretty solid look at the rumoured LG G Watch R in the teaser video released a few days back, but now the Korean company has officially unveiled its second Android Wear smartwatch.

Announced less than two months after the launch of the original G Watch, the G Watch R features a circular design with a 1.3in plastic OLED display running at 320x320; unlike the Moto 360, it doesn’t have part of the screen concealed, offering full use of the display.

What’s inside hasn’t changed much from the G Watch, but considering the quick turnaround for a follow-up, that’s not so surprising. Most of the specs are identical: the 1.2Ghz Snapdragon 400 processor with 512MB RAM and 4GB of storage, plus Bluetooth 4.0 and IP67 water and dust resistance.
