The LG Watch Urbane Second Edition is the second iteration of the Watch Urbane, and the first Android Wear watch to offer standalone cellular connectivity. You can connect the watch via 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth.
Inside, it has all the standard makings of an Android Wear smartwatch: a 1.38-inch P-OLED display, a Snapdragon 400 processor, and 4GB of onboard storage, for music and things. However, LG bumped up the RAM to 768MB, which should help the smartwatch a bit with performance. The battery pack has also been increased to 570mAh, no doubt because of the cellular connectivity.
Both devices will be available in the US and Korea very soon. We’ll be going hands-on with both products later today, so stay tuned!
