LG Joins The Smartwatch Race With New Teaser

When Motorola's Moto 360 was announced at Google's most recent I/O, it was clearly the winner of the show. While rivals Samsung and LG put out their own smartwatches, they didn't quite compete with Motorola on design and functionality. 

But today that changes as LG have announced, or at least hinted at, the coming of their latest smartwatch, the LG G Watch R. It's a bit of a mouthful, but then again so are most of its product names. 

What I'm excited about is the rounded design. LG have made clear that the watch will utilize a full circle for the watch face, perhaps making fun of the Moto 360's black bar.

The smartwatch race is heating up fast with HTC still expected to launch their wearable device in time for the holidays, and Apple very much on their way to releasing their rumored iWatch, despite minor production setbacks.
