LG G Watch Urbane 2 coming back

Back in November 2015, LG suddenly cancelled its latest smartwatch, but it looks like the problems will be a thing of the past soon and the Watch Urbane 2 will get back in the second part of 2016,

Back in November, LG was pulling the Watch Urbane 2 of the market only a few days after is release. Unfortunately, the display issues of this smart wearable were not that easy to fix. The good part is that, according to a recent report by CNET, this smartwatch will bounce back in the second half of this year.

A South Korean spokesman revealed that the Google Nexus 5 and Nexus 5X will not get a successor anytime soon. He also added that "LG needs to focus on its own brand," so manufacturing anything for others is largely out of question for a while. In the end, he also uncovered that a new smartwatch will launch in the second half. As it usually happens in such cases, no details have been mentioned so far.

On the other hand, sales of smartwatches are now better than those of traditional Swiss,  so we just need to wait and see when will the Urbane 2 get back.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
