LG Teases us with LG G Watch R

LG G Watch R 2Following the June release of one of the first-to-market wearable devices powered by Android Wear™, LG Electronics (LG) is quickly expanding its wearable product offerings with the unveiling a new Android Wear device — the LG G Watch R at IFA 2014 in Berlin next week. The LG G Watch R will be the world’s first watch-style wearable device to feature a full circle Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display that utilises 100 percent of its circular display.

 

The most eye-catching feature of the LG G Watch R is its 1.3-inch full circle P-OLED display that produces stunning image clarity even under bright sunlight and superb clarity when viewed from any angle. Powered by a powerful 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, the LG G Watch R offers 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM and a durable 410mAh battery. This Android Wear device will effortlessly run all compatible apps available in the Google Play Store and with an Ingress Protection Rating of IP67, the LG G Watch R is designed to run for up to 30 minutes in one metre of water.

 

With Android Wear™ at its core, the LG G Watch R delivers essential and relevant information exactly at the right time and place through voice recognition notifications. With a suite of LG health and fitness apps, users can also monitor their heartbeats with the support of the embedded photoplethysmography (PPG) sensor. And the smart notifications provide users with important reminders of missed calls and messages, upcoming meetings, events, and local weather forecasts.

 

With an artisanal elegance, the LG G Watch R boasts a refined aesthetic that is reminiscent of traditional timepieces. Replete with a circular watch face, this elegantly crafted Android wearable has classic curves encased in a strong, durable stainless steel frame and carries a suite of watch faces that are accessible with a simple touch of the display. Its interchangeable 22mm calf skin leather strap also complements its overall aesthetic, giving it an air of modern prestige.

 

“What we’ve noticed in the year of the wearable is that this is a category that can’t be compared to smartphones and tablets,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Wearables are also accessories and consumers will want more than one to choose from. So we wanted to complement the modern design of the original G Watch with the classic look of the G Watch R. Customers can’t go wrong with either device.”

 

The LG G Watch R will be available in key markets early in the fourth quarter of 2014. Prices and details of availability will be announced locally at the time of launch. Visitors to IFA can see LG G Watch R up close in Hall 11.2 of Messe Berlin from September 5-10.

woman_driving_sideHere’s something you don’t see everyday. A midway convergence of you in car Satnav and Google Glass. Navdy is a piece of hardware that sits atop of your steering column and projects a head up display (HUD) onto you windscreen if assist with relevant drivers information. We have see it in the movies, The Living Daylights in particular springs to mind however I am certain Navdy are not exploring a laser guided missile system. 

navdy_front_directions

 

The box looks cute, if a little tacky and will become a bit of a security risk if left in the car however, as a first generation device this could be a fun and handy addition for the road warrior. The HUD sits at an impressive 5.1″ wide and it fully transparent. A high quality projector displays an image on the screen and an IR camera makes for touchless gesture control. The Navdy uses an accelerometer, e-compass, ambient light sensor to assist in navigating you around alongside an internal speaker and microphone with noise canceling DSP for interaction. The Navdy runs on a Dual core processor and manages the latest Android 4.4 operating system.

So if you are excited by the offerings put forward by Google and Apple for in car systems but are not interested in actually changing your car solely for that reason then the Navdy may provide a distraction as the market is established.  The Navdy is currently available for pre-order at $299, down from $499 and ships early 2015.
