AT&T today started issuing refunds to customers that pre-ordered LG's latest smartwatch, the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition. LG later elaborated that it has postponed launch plans for the device indefinitely. The Watch Urbane 2nd Edition was to be the first watch to support the new built-in cellular connectivity features in the newest version of Android Wear. The watch included 4G LTE and was to be available first with AT&T and Verizon, as well as in Korea. A statement from LG reads "the decision was made to cancel the rollout of the Urbane 2nd Edition LTE due to the complicated nature of the issue. Whether the device will be available in the future will be decided at a later time. For now, our top priority is to ensure that only products that meet our very specific quality standards are available for purchase."

No surprise

I bought this watch last Thursday at AT&T and returned it Friday morning as soon as they opened.
To say it is beyond useless is an understatement.
No settings to configure to your personal taste apps don't work can't install anything and the one thing it should be good at, making calls, was an exercise in futility.

The only redeeming quality is that it is quite a nice looking device and felt good while wearing it. And despite initial reviews it was not big at all

Maybe they'll take queues from the Gear2 and keep the LTE integration then it'll be a better device
