LG Watch Urbane LTE will cost almost twice as much as the G Watch R
Having LTE connectivity means the Watch Urbane LTE can replace a smartphone, but that convenience comes at a steep price.
LG announced the availability of the Watch Urbane LTE for Korea; the device will hit the stores from tomorrow for a whopping 650,000 won. That’s almost $590, and, even if Korean prices are typically higher that what you get in the US, there’s a good chance the Watch Urbane LTE will remain relatively pricey if it ever makes it to other markets.
Announced just ahead of MWC earlier this month, the Watch Urbane LTE is very different from its Android Wear-totting cousins, the G Watch R and Watch Urbane. The device runs a WebOS-derived operating system and is designed to work independently from any smartphone. Check out our hands-on with the device from MWC:
LG suggested that the Urbane LTE is just an experiment for now, and the eye-watering price seems to confirm this. Even if the price tag doesn’t put you off, you may have a hard time getting hold of it – it’s possible that LG will only release the Watch Urbane LTE in its home market.
