Meet LG’s answer to the Moto 360. It’s called the G Watch R, and unlike the original G Watch, it sports an attractive stainless steel design with a more traditional circular watch face, and an interchangeable leather strap. It’s set to get its official unveiling at IFA 2014 next week, but it seems LG just couldn’t keep it under wraps any longer.


Asus will unveil its first Android Wear smartwatch at IFA 2014 in Berlin next month. Asus CEO Jerry Shen revealed the news to investors at a conference in Taiwan, reports claim, and he promised the device will look better than competing wearables from rival companies.


Sony’s third-generation SmartWatch will be announced at IFA 2014 in Berlin next month, according to a new report, and it will bring with it an improved display with a higher pixel density and built-in Wi-Fi. It will also have revamped software, sources claim, but Sony will not be adopting Google’s new Android Wear platform.


Samsung has already issued invites for a press event ahead of IFA 2014 next month, where the South Korean company will almost certain unveil the Galaxy Note 4. But we’re expecting a number of other devices, too — one of which could be the first SIM slot-equipped Gear Solo smartwatch, sources claim.


HP is probably the last company you’d expect to make a genuinely good-looking smartwatch, but it appears to have done that with a little help from Gilt and fashion designed Michael Bastian. The company’s upcoming wearable, which it teased for the first time today, will deliver a custom operating system that’s compatible with both Android and iOS.
