[Deal] Grab the LG G Watch R for $210 from T-Mobile with promo code

LG_G_Watch_R_With_Box_TA

If you’re in the market for the LG G Watch R, we have a tremendous deal for you. T-Mobile has it for the normal price of $299.99, but if you use promo code ACCOFFER18 at checkout, you will get 30% off, bringing the total to $209.99. You will also get Free shipping. I tried the code myself so I know it works at the time of this post.

Unfortunately this code doesn’t work for the Moto 360, but my favorite of the two watches is the G Watch R due to better battery life and the “Always On” display.

We’re not sure how long this deal will last, so don’t fall asleep at the wheel on this one.

Watch faces auto shift in ‘Always On’ mode on the LG G Watch R, here’s how to compensate for it

LG_G_Watch_R_Watch_Face_Shifted_Always_On_Mode_01

If you own the LG G Watch R, you might have noticed that your watch faces seem to shift ever so slightly when in the dimmed “Always On” mode. Then when the face fully lights up, it goes back to center, especially with apps like Facer. You’re not alone in that a lot of people have noticed it. It appears to be by design as a way to prevent screen burn in. The only problem is that some faces look horrible as you can see in the image above. You want to utilize the “Always On” display so you can enjoy your watch face, but seeing white around the sides just ruins the experience. There is no way to turn this feature off (you wouldn’t want to), but there is something that you can do to compensate for it.

You can play classic PlayStation games on Android Wear

croc_android_wearLast month we showed you a Gameboy emulator that runs on Android Wear smartwatches, and today we have some more exciting news for classic game enthusiasts. A two minute clip from Youtube user “EpicLPer” shows an Android Wear smartwatch running a PlayStation emulator playing the game Croc. The emulator is called ePSXe, and seems to play pretty well on LG G Watch’s Snapdragon 400 processor.

It’s a pretty small screen to be playing a game that was meant for televisions, but it’s an incredibly portable way to play your favorite games if you’re feeling nostalgic. You can check out EpicLPer’s video past the break.
