Come take a close look at the LG G Watch R, the most beautiful Android Wear smartwatch around.
Say hello to the LG G Watch R, the first truly round Android Wear smartwatch and arguably the most beautiful smartwatch so far.
Its round body is made from angular metal, with a real leather wrist strap and a selection of classic watch faces to choose from, making it far more stylish than its square predecessor, the G Watch.
The G Watch R is due to go on sale within the next month in the US, UK and Australia, although prices aren't yet known.
LG's first Android Wear watch, the G Watch, was a very dull, square affair. The G Watch R couldn't be more different.
It's only when notifications pop up on screen that it's possible to tell that this isn't just a normal watch.
The screen is touch-enabled to allow you to navigate through the Android Wear interface. Voice commands are used to perform many actions.
The watch will show incoming calls, along with a picture of the person, if you have the contact associated with your Google account.
You can accept or decline the call, but you'll need to have a headset on as there's no speaker in the watch itself.
You can see incoming emails...
...and be reminded of upcoming events too.
Although the Motorola Moto 360 is the first round smartwatch we've seen, its screen had a small black bar on the bottom, making the G Watch R the first fully circular display.
There's a huge selection of watch faces to choose from.
The analogue faces look the best, as the 1.3-inch OLED display is bright and bold, making the watch hands really stand out against the dark backgrounds.
Oh, and another.
Much less classic, but I do like the blue background.
This green laser isn't for dazzling your enemies -- it's a heart rate monitor built into the back.
You can check on your pulse during a workout to make sure you're training hard enough.
It'll count your steps too.
Using voice commands, you can ask for the weather, perform a search, ask for nearby locations, email a contact, set an alarm or timer, or find out your agenda for the day.
The crown on the side is the home button.
It's certainly the most attractive smartwatch so far, but its angular, chunky design won't appeal to everyone -- particularly not those with delicate wrists.
There are various third-party apps you can get on your phone that will send information over to the watch.
Shown here is recipe app CookPad, which lets you browse for recipes...
...and then follow them, step by step on the watch.
Notifications from all apps on your phone will appear on the watch.
Here's a vibrant blue face.
And a more subdued one.
There are more modern digital faces if you're not keen on the classic analogue hands.
This watch face, entitled Fitness, keeps a step count on show at all times.
I like this minimalist face.
The strap is leather, but it uses a standard watch strap connection so you can swap it out for a more classy metal link affair, or a sporty rubber one if you prefer.
The screen is recessed into the body, creating this angled black bezel.
It's quite a chunky thing.
