Some time in the fourth quarter LG will be releasing a direct shot at the MOTO 360. Their LG G Watch R ($400) is the updated circular version of their current G Watch. The G Watch R is aiming to move away from the bland feel of todays smartwatches and into a higher level of sophistication. The watch will feature a steel case with leather strap, and a 1.3-inch 33mm plastic OLED display with a 320x320 resolution. The processor will be a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor matched with a 410mAh battery, 4GB of storage, and 512MB of RAM. Most of the features will be the same as the original G Watch, except for the addition of a heart-rate monitor.

Bang & Olufsen, is known for great sounding, high end, contemporary speaker systems. They've now released the Belolab 14 ($4400) at a lower price floor than their usual offerings. The Belolab 14 is an all-in-one, wireless speaker system that includes a 280 watt eight-inch subwoofer. In the same sub enclosure you also have 5 x 140 watt class D amplifiers for the five individually powered satellite speakers. Each of the speakers has a milled aluminum frame and can be either wall or stand mounted. The specs say the sats use a 2.5" driver. I haven't seen a frequency response for these speakers and I'd be real interested to see how much of the spectrum they cover. If you have a Bang & Olufsen TV you can also get their 4.1 system for $4000 and use the TVs speaker as the center. The Beolab 14 will be available at local retailers in June.
