LG G Watch R vs. Moto 360: Design

The LG G Watch R has the advantage of looking pretty much like a regular watch, more than a smartwatch.

The LG Watch is crafted out of stainless steel and the strap is crafted out of calf-skin leather, it has a 22 mm size so you can also change it to fit to your own personality. The only thing about the watch is the fact that it looks more a man's watch, and it doesn't go on very well with a dress.

The Moto 360 has a 1.5 inch backlit screen, with a 320 x 290 resolution and 205 ppi. However the LG has a brighter and more powerful display, leaving the Moto 360 somewhere behind.

The LG G Watch R has a 320 x 320 resolution with a 1.3 inch P-OLED display, which means a 246 ppi.

The LG Watch will also win this battle due to the fact that it uses all the surface of the screen, in comparison with the Moto 360 which seems to leave a blank space at the bottom of the screen.
