With 2nd-gen LG Urbane now official, 1st-gen model starts seeing clearance pricing


If you don’t need the standalone connectivity of the second-generation Urbane smartwatch just announced by LG, you can now pick up the original model for $225 – a $55 saving. It’s likely that other outlets will follow suit.

The main difference between the two models is that the 1st-gen requires a Bluetooth connection to an Android device, while the 2nd-gen features cellular connectivity, supporting both 3G and 4G. No pricing or availability has yet been announced.

LG Watch Urbane is gorgeous, round all-metal Android Wear in gold or silver

LG has taken the Watch R and added a little class to it with the new ‘Urbane’. Specs-wise, it is pretty much a Watch R except with a thinner bezel and gold or solver trim with IP67 dust and water resistance. From the initial images, it does look nice.

“The LG Watch Urbane’s classic design and smart features make it the perfect smartwatch to complement our G Watch and G Watch R, which were designed as more casual and active devices,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “LG Watch Urbane is an important part of our strategy to develop wearable devices that are worn and viewed as everyday accessories, not electronic gadgets.”

More details including price, release date and more will be announced at Mobile World Congress at the end of the month. We’ll be there!
