Water and dust resistance is still there, the IP67 certification gives you up to 30 minutes under one metre of water.
The Android Wear app is where all the action comes from, devices running Android 4.3 or newer will be able to download and run Android Wear, from there the LG G Watch R will display Hangout messages, email notifications and weather updates for home and work plus much more. As with the original version, you can dictate emails, messages and even use Google Keep to remind you to pick up some tea bags on the way home. An added benefit with the LG G Watch R is the usability in direct sunlight, providing high quality viewing at any angle.
