LG Watch Urbane 2 2nd Edition Hands On -4

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.

Are you convinced?

Buy the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE from AT&T!

    I’m convinced and waiting for my pre-order to ship!!

    • Michael Pasley

      I pre ordered on the first day from at&t and I received it Tuesday. I love the watch, the screen is awesome, it is quick and responsive and it switches to lte and stays connected so I keep getting my notifications. It will only get better when att implement numbersync. Right now if connected lte and I make a call it uses the watches cell phone number to call and people don’t know who is calling.

      • Vince Leasher

        I was wondering why they gave me a new number for it. Now we just need numbersync so its not relying on call forwarding…

        • Michael Pasley

          Have you figured out the call forwarding. I haven’t messed with it but would like it to forward to my watch if I don’t answer the phone

          • Vince Leasher

            Mine is coming UPS ground and apparently isn’t arriving until Tuesday.. When I pre-ordered it in store the said you just have to call AT&T when it arrives to set all that up..

      • Derek Freese

        Does it have GPS functionality?

        • Michael Pasley

          Not sure.

        • Rugster11

          Yes it does…LG confirmed it.

      • el_perezo

        So it’s not like samsungs gear s watches where it still uses your phones number to send messages when not connected via Bluetooth?

        • Michael Pasley

          If you phone is on and connected to data then yes you can send messages from your watch using your phones number.

          • el_perezo

            So as long as both are connected to att network and not necessary Bluetooth….your message or call will sent using your phones #?

  • Eddie Harrington

    Right now this is the Android watch I would buy but not from AT&T and definitely not from Verizon. Guess I’ll have to look elsewhere.

    • Laura Arroyo

      When I saw the draft which was of 7159 dollars, I accept that my friend’s brother was like really generating cash in his spare time with his computer. . His aunts neighbor has done this for only 10 months and by now repaid the loan on their home and bought a new Car .This is what they are donig …


  • Daniel Reitzell

    I have Verizon, if I bought it from ATT, how would that work?

    • Derek Freese

      It would not work. The antenna that is built into the watch is network specific.

      • Daniel Reitzell

        That’s what I figured, I have a mobility plan with ATT at work, wonder if I could add it on to that? Thanks!!

  • John Doe

    Is it coming to Canada? and can it be daisy-chained off of your existing phone carrier account (ie, same phone# and data plan)??

  • John

    I also received mine from ATT on Tuesday. Pretty slick piece of tech. Disappointed with ios support though. You can not install any apps if its synched to iPhone, I thought I would just synch with my android, install apps and then resynch with iPhone.. unfortunately when you unpair from a phone it does a factory reset on the watch…

  • clay

    I have sprint…could I buy this watch from ATT and not activate the 3g/lte ( no put in a sim) and still use it to talk on through Bluetooth? My wife has the apple watch and its ability to take calls is one feature I like that Android watches are or were missing.

  • AGWisFraud

    I pre-ordered one a few days ago, and was expecting my watch to ship yesterday. Instead I got an email cancellation notice that said the following:

    “Unfortunately due to an unexpected system issue, your order has been canceled. And don’t worry – your card hasn’t been charged and we will reset your eligibility if you were upgrading.*”

    What gives AT&T? You can’t just automatically recover from your “unexpected system issue” and restart my order? C’mon man!

    Anyone else encounter this problem?

  • Sangfreud

    I just bought this watch off-contract from AT&T, and I was able to make voice calls and send text messages by inserting my iPhone nanosim. I did not need to activate a new device on my account. I paired the watch with an Android tablet on an LTE data plan with AT&T, so now I can use my watch for voice and my tablet for data. However, there is one MAJOR flaw with the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition: You cannot pair it with a Bluetooth headset to make voice calls! I tried pairing a Moto Hint and Jaybird Bluebud X headphones. I can listen to stereo audio from the watch over a Bluetooth connection, but it does not work for calls! Only the internal speaker and mic works for phone calls, which I think is completely ridiculous. I hope they release an update to fix this!
