LG Watch Urbane is coming to Google Play in 13 countries before May



LG is making nice on their promise to have the LG Watch Urbane out in April. The company has announced that the Android Wear smart watch will find its way into Google Play for 13 different countries by the end of the month.

The list of countries includes Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. This group joins the lucky folks in South Korea who will understandably receive it first.

The Watch Urbane is a premium looking smart watch with stylish good looks. It sets the bar for smart watch standards in 2015, and it also holds the distinction of being the first smart watch to run the latest Android Wear update as it’ll have the new goods pre-loaded.

That update will bring a number of notable features, including new gestures for writing emojis and scrolling through the UI, as well as support for WiFi for those moments when you can’t be close enough to your phone to use the more favorable Bluetooth connection. You can read more about what’s coming right here, and get your wallets ready for whenever it goes live at Google Play (though we’re not yet sure how much you’ll need to pay as LG still hasn’t released those details).

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. In my honest opinion.This watch is sexy. By far the best looking Android wear watch released thus far.

    1. Def looks classy

    2. Battery lasts 8 – 10 hours I do not care what it looks like I never buy it.

      1. If true, agreed. It can look awesome all it wants, if I have to stop and charge my watch during my day, it’s simply not going to happen. Charging a phone is 1 thing, taking a watch on and off in the middle of the day, very different. And an 8-10 hour day is hardly a full day for me. I am just getting going with a second wind at the 8 to 10th hour mark.

      2. Hey I never said I would buy it..but it is sexy.

      3. You have a link to that battery test?

      4. Why do you think this watch would get one-third the battery life of the Moto 360? With the most recent software updates, the Moto can now get 18-24 hours of normal use (up to 2 days with light use). Hardly great battery life, but way better than 8-10 hours don’t you think?

  2. Nice.

  3. What’s the price of this watch?

    1. Last sentence:
      ” (though we’re not yet sure how much you’ll need to pay as LG still hasn’t released those details).”

  4. looks really good. the battery life tho…and i read the price is going to be at $350. this might be DOA =

    1. If the price it right, this might be my first Android Watch. Hopefully is around $250.

      1. I’ve read 320-350 = its probably why i wont get one. i’m going to hope the 360 2nd gen will be around 250-300 and i am with you, might buy one finally

  5. I’m in for one. Got the square LG at launch, but it’s just far too nerdy looking to wear to the office. This is the first smartwatch I’ve seen that isn’t so tacky.

  6. I hope they release a model with a stainless steel band or the bands are easily swappable, I never had any luck with a leather band lasting.
