The LG G Watch R is now available from AT&T and Google Play and Sprint confirmed today that it will start offering the Korean electronics manufacturer’s latest smartwatch on November 14th. The carrier will sell the Android Wear device for $300 outright or qualified customers can purchase it for no money down via Sprint’s Easy Pay program for $25 per month for one year.

In terms of features, the LG G Watch R’s hardware nearly mirrors its predecessor’s, packing a Snapdragon 400 processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. The real differences are its IP67 rated durability and its round 1.3-inch 320 x 320 P-OLED display and built-in heart rate monitoring sensor.

If you’re looking for a smartwatch that has a formal appeal, the LG G Watch R is one of the better looking Android Wear devices on the market.
