With the rumor mill now claiming that Apple's smartwatch is imminent, its rivals are moving quickly to get their latest models out before Cupertino makes the big announcement. The latest to announce a watch is LG with the G Watch R.

The smartwatch is another entry in the Android Wear platform and features a 1.3 inch circular P-OLED display that's designed to be bright and readable even under sunlight. The watch is powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and includes 4GBs of onboard storage and 512MBs of RAM. It's also dust and water resistant and can run for up 30 minutes in one meter of water. The LG G Watch R will be available later this year.

Taschen's Rolling Stones

stones.jpg

For a group of musicians that put a dent into the world of rock and roll, it would take one hell of a publisher to capture the legendary history of one of music's most important acts:

"The kind of fame and success the Rolling Stones have achieved in their 50-year career is completely without parallel; their most famous riffs and catchiest lyrics are indelibly engraved in our collective memory. With their bluesy rock 'n' roll and mesmerizing stage presence, the Stones redefined the music of the 1960s and paved the way for rock as we know it today. Produced in collaboration with the band, this book charts the Stones' remarkable history and outrageously cool lifestyle in around 550 pages of photographs and illustrations, many previously unseen, gathered from archives all over the world. Unprecedented access to the Rolling Stones' own archives in New York and London adds an equally extraordinary, more private side to the Stones' story."

Scout Drift Jacket

Scout isn't the type of company that sticks to a traditional seasonal collection release, they add a new piece every now and then and each release is definitely worth noting. Their newest piece is a great looking lightweight layer for the fall called the Drift Jacket.

Made in their hometown of Seattle, Washington, the jacket is made from a single layer of navy-colored, Japanese lightweight cotton that's perfect for the fall. It's also decorated with a subtle white floral print that almost gives the illusion of texture across the jacket's fabric.

$324, Scout
