This Android Wear premium smartwatch reaches the US market via Google Play, AT&T, and Verizon, priced at $349 USD.

LG Watch Urbane reached the South Korean market about a month ago, and now this premium smartwatch powered by a Qualcomm chip and loaded with Android Wear hits the US. The classy-looking wearable landed in the Google Play Store a few days ago and now Verizon Wireless and AT&T announce its availability as well.

The LG Watch Urbane has a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC, a 1.3-inch P-OLED display with 320X320 pixels, 512 MB RAM and 4 GB of internal storage and uses a 410 mAh battery. The smartwatch has a rich array of sensors, packs WiFi connectivity, and works seamlessly with premium handsets loaded with Android 4.3 or later, such as the LG G4.

Available in silver and rose gold, LG Watch Urbane is rated IP67 for protection from the elements. Both AT&T and Verizon sell it for $349 USD, but while the first carrier will have it in stores starting May 15, Verizon Wireless is already shipping the Watch Urbane anywhere in the US.

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.
