AT&T is giving a lot of love to LG today. On top of a BOGO deal with the LG G5, AT&T is also putting up a deal for the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE. The Watch Urbane LTE is special in that it features NumberSync, which allows your watch to send messages, make calls, and more using your normal number even without your phone nearby.
If you buy an LG G5 through AT&T Next, you can get the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE for $99.99 with a two year contract. Otherwise, it’s $18 a month for 20 months with $0 down. Either way, you’ll need to pay $10 a month to add it to your Mobile Share plan, much like a tablet.
While contracts for a watch doesn’t sound ideal, and the cost of entry for a NumberSync device is quite high, it’s a very interesting new technology that might actually take off. Forgetting your phone might even be intentional some days, as your watch can take over a bunch of simple functions. Will anyone be picking one up?Show Press Release
