Recently, I updated my LG G Watch R to the latest Android Wear update, and I noted a few changes off the bat. There’s a new charging display that’s bigger and clearer to read when the watch is on the cradle. It looks a lot like the Moto 360 charging display, sans the flat tire. In addition, this update also brings Wi-Fi to the G Watch R.
With the G Watch R being Wi-Fi capable, it allows wearers to receive notifications and other information on their wrists even without being Bluetooth paired. However, it seems like WiFi on drains the battery a bit more.
