The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE is a smartwatch with Google Android Wear software, a round face, and a design that looks a bit more classic watch-like than many other smart wearables.
It was supposed to go on sale in late 2015 as one of the first Android Wear devices to support cellular connectivity (so you could connect to the internet without a phone or a WiFi network). But LG postponed the watch’s launch at the last minute.
Now it’s back. AT&T is taking pre-orders for the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE.
The pricing is a little convoluted. You can pay $18 per month over the course of 20 months for a total of $360 to buy the watch.
Or you can sign up for a 2-year contract and get the watch for $100. But that price only applies if you buy an LG G5 smartphone at the same time, which kind of drives up the price… and you’ll need to pay $10 per month to add the watch to your mobile plan.
The smartwatch has a 1.38 inch, 480 x 480 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 768MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, a 570 mAh battery, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, 4G LTE, HSPA+, and a compass, barometer, IR sensor, accelerometer, and gyroscope.
AT&’s NumberSync service lets you use a single phone number for both your smartphone and your watch, allowing you to take calls or check voicemail with the smartwatch even if your phone isn’t around. You can also place calls through the watch and the person you’re calling will see the same phone number in caller ID that they would see if you were using your phone.
