The LG Watch Urbane LTE Second Edition was recalled four months ago because of a significant hardware issue many associate with the display (LG said it had to do with an inferior "image quality"), but it seems as though LG has sorted out the problems with the smartwatch and is ready to launch it again. The smartwatch is now available for pre-order with AT&T for $18 a month for 20 months, or $99.99 with a two-year-contract.
The LG Watch Urbane has some impressive specs, such as the fact that it houses one of the largest batteries in a smartwatch (570mAh), 4GB of storage, 768MB of RAM, up from the 512MB of RAM you can expect in most smartwatches, such as the Samsung Gear S2, and has a 1.38-inch Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display with a 480 x 480p screen resolution.
For AT&T customers who intend to pick up the device, you'll have to pay out $199.99 up-front on pre-order, but you can expect the device to work by way of NumberSync -- AT&T's new system that lets you use one number for all your mobile devices (no matter how many).
The LG Watch Urbane LTE Second Edition is part of the company's commitment to its own devices. LG has also made the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and Nexus 5X, but the Korean manufacturer says that it intends to take time this year to promote its own products, such as the newly-announced LG G5 smartphone. For those who intend to pick up the LG Watch Urbane LTE, AT&T is also offering a Buy One, Get One Free offer where you can buy one LG G5 and get a second (or another smartphone) for free (as long as you add the new line with the free smartphone to a Next plan). The LG Watch Urbane LTE Second Edition is, for those who're curious to know, powered by Google's smartwatch platform, Android Wear.
