LG’s Watch Urbane 2nd Edition, is the first Android wearable to support cellular connectivity. This one-of-its-kind smartwatch, underneath its screen, has a LTE radio that will allow you to use all of its features without depending on your phone’s internet connection.
These watches will work with the carriers AT&T or Verizon and share phone numbers with your phone. Even when your phone is far away you can perform tasks like answering calls, sending or receiving messages or using various Apps provided both your watch and phone are connected to your carrier. Also, your watch will automatically switch to a cellular connection when you’re out of the Bluetooth or Wi-Fi range.
The watches have a stainless steel body, Snapdragon 400 processor, 768 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, a 1.38-inch 480x480p circular P-OLED touch display with a pixel density of 348ppi. LG claims that the watch’s battery will last a whole day as it is incorporated with a Power Saving Mode option.
AT&T starts selling the LG watch online today and in-store this Friday, at $199.99 on a 2-year contract, while buying it off-contract will cost you $299. And Verizon subscribers will be able to pre-order LG’s wearable starting today for $449.99 on a 2-year contract or $499.99 without signing any documents.
