LG has now confirmed that the latest Android wear device would be launched in its home country on 14October at a price of KRW 352,000, which is about $328.
While there is still no information on the date of release or price for this smartwatch in Europe or US, it is known that LG’s cheaper G Watch was known to be originally priced at KRW 277,000, which is $230 in the US. This would mean that the watch would cost about $290 before taxes are added to the US sales.
This means, the LG device would be an expensive Android Wear smartwatch for many. Smartwatches of most other brands stand at a lower price. For example, Samsung’s Gear Live has a price of $180, while the Moto 360 has a price of $250. It would be interesting to see whether the LG G Watch R Smartwatch features are attractive enough for users.
