LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition brings cellular connectivity to Android Wear


LG shows no signs of slowing down with its smartwatches and has just taken the wraps off the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition. If you delve deep into the sands of time you will no doubt remember the launch of the original LG Watch Urbane all the way back in May of this year.

There are more changes under the hood than you might expect given this short turnaround time too. The headliner of course is the addition of LTE, a first for Android Wear. GPS has been added as well, something that we hope to see most Android Wear devices offering going forward for fitness tracking purposes.


The screen is slightly larger at 1.38-inches (up from 1.3) and the resolution has similarly been bumped up to a class leading 480 x 480. The battery was fortunately not forgotten receiving a boost up to 570 mAh (up from 410).

The Watch Urbane 2nd Edition adds quick access to critical features through the three buttons on the side of the smartwatch including the ability to flip ambient mode on and off with a touch of the crown button.

No details on pricing or a release date at this time and naturally for the LTE functionality you are going to be dealing with a carrier.
