The LG G Watch R, the first truly round Android Wear smartwatch, may also be the priciest. While LG has yet to release details on a US launch, the G Watch R is slated to debut in the company’s native South Korea on October 14 for a price of 352,000 won, which roughly translates to $328.

When LG launched the G Watch, the predecessor to the G Watch R, it retailed for 277,000 won, or $257, in South Korea. When it hit American markets, the device was $230. Following this structure, the LG G Watch G will likely be priced somewhere around $290 when it hits stores in the United States.

This would make the LG G Watch R will be the most expensive smartwatch running the Android Wear on the market.

Currently, the Moto 360 is the most expensive Android Wear smartwatch on the market, coming in at $250, while Samsung’s Gear Live is priced at $200. The Apple Watch, with the company announced last month, will have a starting price of $350.
