NEW YORK, March 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's connected world, we all feel the need to constantly carry our smartphones in order to avoid experiencing FOMO (fear of missing out). But having a connected watch makes it okay to leave your smartphone in the other room or go out for an errand without it.
The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE, powered by Android Wear, is a smartwatch that connects to the Verizon 4G LTE network and helps you maintain that connected feeling without requiring your smartphone within constant arm's reach.
A 4G LTE smartwatch means that even when away from your smartphone you'll still get notifications and can reply to friends, call family, search for food, listen to music, and more. You can feel confident that you're getting your notifications on time. A connected smartwatch without a reliable network, though, is just a watch. No one wants that awkward moment when you voice text with your watch in public and get a "message failed" error.
Stay Connected with One Number
The smartwatch is compatible with Verizon Messages, so texting and calling from the watch will use your smartphone's number. This creates a single phone number experience when texting and calling from different devices. And your messages inbox will sync across devices so you can start a texting conversation on your phone and then finish it on your watch.
The wearable is designed like a real watch and features a circular display like many watches you may be used to seeing and wearing. And the stainless steel case around it gives it that strong and stylish look. It also comes with over 20 watch faces so you can change the look of it to suit your mood or coordinate with your OOTD (outfit of the day).
The LG Watch Urbane 2nd edition LTE is now available for preorder online for $499.99 full retail, or $449.99 with new two-year activation. You'll be able to add the smartwatch to an existing Verizon Plan for $5 per month (taxes and fees apply).
For a limited time, get $100 off the LG Watch Urbane 2nd edition LTE when purchasing an LG G5 or LG V10 on device payment.
