LG Watch Urbane 2 launches in U.S. this month

LG on Thursday finally provided additional details on the launch of the Watch Urbane 2, the company’s fourth Android Wear smartwatch.

The Watch Urbane 2 will begin to hit store shelves in Korea and the United States this month, LG said. The Watch Urbane 2 is the first Android Wear product to introduce native cellular support, which means users can place calls, receive notifications and more, all when Wi-Fi and Bluetooth aren’t available. On AT&T, it can even receive and place calls from your existing phone number with the carrier’s new NumberSync technology.

The Watch Urbane 2 is a compelling looking Android Wear device, and we had a chance to check it out in person when LG announced the V10. Unfortunately, the Watch Urbane 2 wouldn’t turn on at the time – likely because LG was waiting for Google to officially announce calling coming to Android Wear. In any case, you can check out the first-class design in the gallery below.

Verizon will sell the Watch Urbane 2 for $499 beginning on November 19, while AT&T will sell it beginning November 13 for $299 (or $199 with a 2-year contract.) LG will sell the watch in additional countries in the coming months.
