Last week, LG and Samsung, Korean rivals, presented each one a new smartwatch model. LG placed its bets on the more traditional, circular model, while Samsung got daring with phone calls from the watch.
These two gadgets have been revealed a few days before the IFA, the consumer’s technology fair that is celebrated in Berlin this week. Also, just before the act in which Motorola will most probably finally present its Moto 360. The battle for the best smartwatch has begun. These three models are rivals between them. They have a couple of similarities and some characteristics that differentiates them.
The Moto 360 was announced some months ago but it has yet to see the light. The company, now property of Lenovo, has sent invitations for an event this week, on September 4. In the invitation there were some hints given on what was to be presented, one of them, a watch. The circular design of the Moto 360 called the attention of many users and it is now one of the most anticipated smartwatches. During the Google I/O developers conference there were two Android Wear watches on sale and a lot of people of the attendees lamented that the Moto 360 wasn’t one of them.
Seeing the good reception of the circular model, LG did not want to waste time and has presented the G Watch R. One of their best characteristics is its design: sport with a circular screen. The Korean company has already revealed that they will show this watch during Berlin’s IFA.
Samsung, most probably, will also show its Gear S device during the IFA. The Korean company will give a keynote on September 3rd.
A lot of features are known on these devices. The three of them share the same RAM and storage capacity. They all have a 512 MB RAM memory and 4GB of storage space. Concerning power, the G Watch R has a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and the Gear S has two 1.0GHz cores. The Moto 360 has a Texas Instruments processor, but its power is not known. They are all compatible with WiFi and Bluetooth, water resistant and have a heart monitor.
The Gear S stands out because of two things, it is the only one that doesn’t work with Android Wear, and instead uses Tizen. It is speculated that this is an action from Samsung to detach itself a little from Google. The second feature is that it has a 3G/2G modem, this means that it can do and receive calls from the device.
