Sprint will begin selling LG’s new G Watch R on Friday, November 14, the carrier has confirmed. The device is already available through Google Play for $300, but Sprint will let you spread the cost of the device out over a year on its Easy Pay plan. The G Watch R is widely regarded as one of the best Android Wear watches you can buy right now. It’s up there with the Moto 360 in terms of design and build quality, and it’s a much more premium offering than LG’s original G Watch. It’s not too dissimilar internally, however.
LG’s round-faced, Android-powered LG G Watch R is coming to Sprint, the carrier announced on Friday. As the second smartwatch with a rounded screen, G Watch R is also water- and dust-resistant. Able to pair with any Android 4.3 smartphone or later, LG’s wearable will let you interchange leather straps and has a 410mAh battery. The LG wearable, for all its practicality and flexibility, does not come cheap. Sprint will offer the G Watch R starting November 14 for $300. Those who would rather pay in installments can use Sprint Easy Pay and spread the cost over 12 monthly payments of $25 each. If you’re on the lookout for a round watch, the G Watch is one of the more attractive Android Wear options, though it’s also pricey. It follows in the footsteps of Motorola’s Moto 360, which was the first watch with a round, rather than rectangular, screen to enter the market.
