LG G5 and LG Watch Urbane 2 LTE up for pre-order via Verizon
Sprint isn’t the only US network kicking off its LG G5 pre-orders today, as Big Red is joining in on the action as well.
The Verizon LG G5 is available for $624 outright, or 24 monthly payments of $26, and will ship April 1st. That’s slightly more expensive than the $576 asking price on Sprint’s network, though Verizon’s LG G5 pre-orders offer one key advantage: it includes a free 360 CAM accessory. In addition to the 360 CAM you also get a spare battery and charging cradle, though this later promo also applies to Sprint’s LG G5.

The LG G5 isn’t the only thing going up for pre-order on Verizon today. The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE smartwatch is finally back up for pre-orders after being pulled from shelves in 2015. The LTE-equipped Android Wear watch is priced at $499.99 outright or $449.99 with a two-year contract, and will also ship on April 1st. Why anyone would sign a two year agreement just to ‘save’ $50 is beyond me, but the option is there if you want it.
In order to use the watch’s staple feature, LTE, you’ll need to also pay $5 a month for the privilege, which is half the price AT&T charges for LTE access. That said, AT&T is selling the watch for a much cheaper $359 off-contract, so it all evens out for the most part.
So how about it, anyone planning on pre-ordering the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
