LG G Watch R Removed From The Google Store – Discontinued In Under A Year
LG has been putting out Android Wear smartwatches since the day the platform was announced. The original LG G Watch kicked things off and it was quickly succeeded by the LG G Watch R. This round smartwatch brought a traditional watch design to Android Wear for the first time, and to this day it still looks great. However now, under a year after release, the LG G Watch R is no longer.
After being removed from the Google Store, the LG G Watch R started disappearing from other outlets such as Best Buy and LG’s own website. LG did confirm to Android Police that the LG G Watch R has been discontinued. Existing stock will be sold, but production has stopped. Focus has been moved to the more expensive LG Watch Urbane since then. The device was announced last November and now just 7 months later, it’s gone without a proper goodbye.
