We first laid eyes and put our geeky little hands all over the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE last October 1st, during the LG V10 announcement. We knew right away this thing was special. Not only does it inherit the great looks and superior performance we have previously seen in other LG wearables, but this one happened to be a first-of-a-kind.
It is currently the only Android Wear Smartwatch to feature cellular connectivity, something Google was very proud to talk about today. This means you don’t have to rely on Bluetooth or WiFi anymore. Just leave your phone at home and stay connected through your LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE.
So, when can you get it? LG has just shared the good news; those of us in the USA and Korea will not have to wait much longer. In fact, AT&T is starting to ship it tomorrow, with online availability now open. If you’d rather see it first-hand, you will have to wait until November 13th, when AT&T promises the device is to reach its stores. But then again, that is only a couple days away!
AT&T’s prices are set at $199.99 on a 2-year contract, while buying it off-contract will cost you $299. Which, by the way, just so happens to be better than Verizon‘s deal!
Big Red will start pre-orders on this smartwatch starting November 12th, and it will be reaching stores November 19th. It is the prices Verizon is setting that really have us scratching our heads, though. They are selling LG’s wearable for $449.99 on a 2-year contract or $499.99 without signing any documents. What a way to compete, Verizon.
But regardless of where you buy it, you can be sure the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE (am I the only one who hates long device names?!) will be sure to satisfy your techie needs. It comes with a Snapdragon 400 processor, 768 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, a 1.38-inch 480x480p P-OLED screen and a 570 mAh battery.
