LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE returns to the US
Although the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition was unleashed just in time for last year's winter holiday season, it missed it due to an undisclosed hardware issue that forced LG to discontinue sales completely. Fortunately, this was only a temporary withdrawal from the market and now this LTE-capable smartwatch is ready to hit the market once again.
LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE is the first 4G Android Wear smartwatch to hit the market, offering similar cellular radio connectivity to the Samsung Gear S2 3G. Thanks to this feature, it can work as a stand-alone device that does not need a smartphone companion. This connected smart wearable is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC, next to 768 MB RAM, 4 GB eMMC internal storage, and has a 1.38-inch P-OLED display with 480X480 pixels. LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE is IP67-certified for protection from dust and water, has a 570 mAh battery, and has a hypoallergenic elastomer band.
Verizon offers the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE for $499.99 USD without a contract and $449.99 USD with a two-year subscription. AT&T, on the other hand, is asking a full retail price of $359.99 USD, and $199.99 USD with a two-year contract.
