When LG unveiled the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition last month it didn’t offer many specifics on the actual launch. We still don’t know exactly when the new SIM-enabled smartwatch will arrive, but now we know one more U.S. carrier that’s set to support the device at launch.
The new Watch Urbane passed through the Global Certification Forum this week. The device is listed by the model number LG-W200V, which lines up with the company’s previous smartwatches. The “V” at the end of the model number almost certainly indicates Verizon support, which is a big deal considering the device’s focus on LTE support.
LG’s new smartwatch won’t be limited to Verizon. AT&T has already confirmed plans to carry the device. Hopefully other U.S. carriers are onboard too.
The Watch Urbane 2nd Edition offers a 1.38-inch round display with a 480 x 480 resolution, a Snapdragon 400 processor, a 570mAh battery, 4GB of storage and 768MB of RAM. It runs Android Wear and comes packed with sensors, including a heart rate monitor, a barometer, GPS, a compass, an accelerometer and a gyroscope.
The device is set to launch in the U.S. and South Korea first, followed by Europe, Asia and the Middle East. We still don’t know how much it will cost, but all that technology probably won’t come cheap.
