LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE up for pre-order on Verizon and AT&T
LG have taken a leap ahead in the competitive smartwatch market with Watch Urbane Luxe smartwatch and last month came out with a refreshing announcement of LG Watch Urbane 2 with cellular 4G connectivity. Yet another announcement is all set to bring a smile to the faces of smartwatch lovers who wanted to get their hands on the LG Watch Urbane 2 variant. The company will start rolling out the watch to customers in United States and Korea this month with pre-orders already being accepted. Availability in European and Asian countries will soon follow in the coming months.
LG Watch Urbane 2 LTE smartwatch is priced at $499.99 with a Verizon 2 year activation contract. However, AT&T contract for two years is far cheaper at $199.99. Even if you don’t want to sign a contract, the smartwatch will cost just $299 for AT&T users. Interestingly this announcement comes just around the time when TAG Heuer Connected smartwatch was announced, although it is quite clear that these two smartwatches cater to a very different audience given their completely different pricing models.
Being the first of its kind smartwatch that doesn’t require a tethered smartphone, LG Watch Urbane 2 Edition LTE features 4G connectivity and runs on Android Wear OS with a Marshmallow reminiscent OS environment they call Emerald 6.0. As for the looks, this smartwatch is a further improvement on its predecessor with refined 1.38” POLED circular display that is honed by a wide selection of 20 watch faces. To give you one more reason to go for this smartwatch, let me tell you that it is compatible with both Android and iOS devices.
