lg watch urbane 2nd edition

It’s only been a week since AT&T started selling the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE on their network, but sales of the smartwatch have reportedly been discontinued.

You wont find the watch available on the Google Store (although the listing is live) or Verizon where it was supposed to be launching today. Apparently LG was able to confirm with The Verge that “a hardware issue which affects the day-to-day functionality of the device” have caused the manufacturer to halt sales of the watch completely.

AT&T, who was already selling the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE both in-store and online, has stopped selling the watch completely and are reportedly offering full refunds to anyone who recently purchased the device.

The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE was not only LG’s big flagship smartwatch for 2015, but it was also the only Android Wear device to support cellular connectivity and the center of Google’s announcement last Wednesday. The big question is if “quality issues” with the watch will be fixed and we’ll see a relaunch, or if it’ll be gone forever.

Anyone purchase the Urbane 2nd Edition and notice any funny business?
