LG has released a teaser video for their next smartwatch, the LG G Watch R which will be officially announced at an event during IFA 2014. LG, in this teaser video, has tried to pull Moto 360’s leg by mentioning that the G Watch R will feature a ‘completely circular display’, unlike Moto 360 which features an almost circular display.

During Google I/O 2014 event which was held in June, Google had unveiled three smartwatches based on Android Wear; LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live and Motorola Moto 360, though, Moto 360 managed to generate more consumer interest that its competitors due to its circular screen. Now, LG wants to capitalise on the popularity and interest about smartwatches with circular display.
