LG Cancels The Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE Indefinitely Because Of Unspecified, Complex "Hardware Issue"

LG reached out to us moments ago with news that the company's upcoming smartwatch, the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE, has been canceled due to an unspecified hardware issue. There is no word at this time if the device will be released at a later date, but for now, LG is calling this a full-on cancellation of the launch.

We understand that you are currently reviewing our latest smartwatch; however, late in the quality assurance process for the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE, our engineers were made aware of a hardware issue which affects the day-to-day functionality of the device.

A Quick Look At Android Wear 1.4's New Gestures On The LG Watch Urbane 2

 

Up until now, there have only been two gestures on Android Wear (both of which I use constantly): scroll up by flicking the wrist in, and scroll down by flicking the wrist out. I've found these to be quick and easy ways of interacting with Android Wear, especially when I'm busy with other things or my hands are full. Since these were introduced, I've often hoped for more gestures, especially for things like exiting apps or going to the next screen.

With Android Wear 1.4 (Marshmallow), Google must've realized how valuable gestures can be, because it brought three new ones to the table: select, go back, and exit to watch face.

There are new Android Wear devices coming out finally, but truth be told, they aren't much different than most of the older ones.

LG V10 Review: LG Got Me Falling In Love

I need to be real with you guys here: I've never liked any device that forced me to use whatever garbage skin the manufacturer was putting on them at the time. In other words, I've always been an "Android Purist," if you will — it was stock Android and nothing else for me, and it's really been like that since I became an Android user. Now, I've had no trouble being objective when it comes to reviewing devices with skins; just because I don't like it doesn't make it "bad."

While I wouldn't go as far as to say that the V10 is a game-changing phone in general, it has definitely been a game-changer for me.

The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE Is Up For Pre-Order On AT&T And Verizon, Available On November 13 And 19 Respectively

Google "surprised" us all yesterday by announcing that cellular support was coming to Android WearCue in Oooohs and Aaaaahs and gasps of jubilant shock. Having already heard about the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE through its teaser video back in September, it was pretty much a given that Wear watches were about to learn a new trick and cut their umbilical cord tether to their phones. But understandably, Google had to make things official just in time for the release of the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE. (I'll call it WU2LTE from now on, ain't nobody got time for that shit!)

The WU2LTE is coming to the US in the next few days, and it's already available for pre-order on both AT&T and Verizon's sites. AT&T will be selling it starting $199.99 with a two-year contract.

Google Announces Official Cellular Support For Android Wear, Doesn't Mention Any Speaker Functionality For Existing Devices Like The Huawei Watch

Raise your hand if this comes as unexpected news to you. Crickets. Alright, we know Google isn't really revealing the most secret of secrets with its newest "Cellular support comes to Android Wear" announcement, but it is clarifying a few things we didn't know about how LTE would work on our smartwatches.

In his post, Peter Ludwig, Product Manager for Android Wear, explains that cellular connectivity on Wear will allow you to leave your phone behind and use your smartwatch on the go. However, it doesn't seem like you'll be able to completely forego the phone, à la Samsung Gear S2, because both phone and watch will need to be turned on and connected to a network for Wear to do its thing.
