LG's round-faced, Android-powered LG G Watch R is coming to Sprint, the carrier announced on Friday.

As the second smartwatch with a rounded screen, G Watch R is also water- and dust-resistant. Able to pair with any Android 4.3 smartphone or later, LG's wearable will let you interchange leather straps and has a 410mAh battery.

The LG wearable, for all its practicality and flexibility, does not come cheap. Sprint will offer the G Watch R starting November 14 for $300. Those who would rather pay in installments can use Sprint Easy Pay and spread the cost over 12 monthly payments of $25 each.

If you're on the lookout for a round watch, the G Watch is one of the more attractive Android Wear options, though it's also pricey. It follows in the footsteps of Motorola's Moto 360 , which was the first watch with a round, rather than rectangular, screen to enter the market.
