This past week we told you that the LG Watch Urbane was coming to the Google Store for purchase before the end of April. A new leak shows that the Android Wear watch from LG will also be available from Verizon stores in the US starting on Tuesday April 28. The leaked document also appears to show the price for the new wearable, a fairly hefty $350. While that price tag is the same cost as the lowest end Apple Watch, it is the most expensive offering we have seen for an Android Wear device. LG previously had the most expensive offering as well, the LG G Watch R, which shares many similarities with the Watch Urbane. It is worth noting that the model coming to Verizon is not the LTE model, which runs Web-OS and not Android Wear.
The Watch Urbane has a premium metal construction and it comes with a 22mm leather strap as standard. Specifications include a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 512MB of RAM, a 410mAh battery, and W-Fi connectivity. The Watch Urbane is also IP67-certified for water-resistance. While the internals are similar to the G Watch R, the design is refined and perhaps more suitable to a business environment. I am definitely interested in taking a look at this watch in person, if it is available at my local Verizon I might wander in there on Tuesday, and perhaps walk out with a new toy! Don’t forget that LG is also poised to announce the G4 on April 28! Stay tuned to HOA for all the breaking news!
