Well, LG tried to pull a fast one on us. They put in the European price of the LG G Watch R which they announced last night, into a German press release. It looks like it’ll be 299 Euro which translates to almost $400 USD. Check out this part of the press release down below.

“Die LG G Watch R wird in Deutschland ab Oktober zu einem UVP von 299 Euro verf¼gbar sein. Auf der IFA in Berlin ist die G Watch R vom 5. Bis 10. September am LG-Stand in Halle 11.2 bereits zu bewundern.

Google translation:

The LG G Watch R will be available in Germany from October at a recommended retail price of 299 euros. At IFA in Berlin Until September 10 at the LG booth in Hall 11.2 already admire the G Watch R on 5.”

The LG G Watch R is a nice looking smartwatch and has a round display, which seems to get everyone all excited these days. The LG G Watch R is basically the same as the LG G Watch, but with a round display. It does look really nice and doesn’t have a black bar like the Moto 360 does. But it definitely has a higher price tag. At least from what we’ve been told. Leaks are telling us the Moto 360 will be $249 and the LG G Watch R is going to be almost twice that. However, while 299 Euros translates to almost $400 USD, we’ll likely see it for about $300 USD instead. As the numbers are usually close to the same in every currency with Google products.

We definitely like the look of the LG G Watch R, but not sure it’s worth that price. It does say that we should get about 2 days of use out of it, which is about what I get out of my G Watch already. So anyone looking at picking one up when it hits in Q4?
