Verizon to Sell Exclusive Wear24 Android Watch
Verizon Wireless is preparing its own branded Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch, called the Wear24, for a March release. The company announced the wearable alongside the LG Watch Sport today. It has a slim, modern design as opposed to the chunky, sporty style of the LG Watch Sport. The Wear24 is compatible with Verizon's LTE network and can share a phone number with smartphones for seamless messaging and calls. The smartwatch has a 1.39-inch display with 360 by 360 pixels. According to Verizon, the watch also includes NFC with support for Android Pay, a 450mAh battery, and a rating of IP67 for water resistance up to 30 minutes in 1 meter of water. The watch will cost $300 with a two-year activation. Verizon didn't say what the full retail price will be, nor did it reveal what company is manufacturing the watch. Verizon subscribers can add the Wear24 watch to their existing plan for $5 per month. Otherwise, the Wear24 requires Verizon's $10 Single Device Plan, which provides unlimited talk and text, and up to 1 GB of LTE data per month.
