Deal: LTE-ready Verizon Wear24 smartwatch with Android Wear 2.0 is now 77% off, grab one for $79.99
May of this year, but Verizon discontinued it just four months after its launch. While the carrier didn't come out with a statement for the pull-out, the big price tag of the wearable was likely the main reason for its lack of commercial success. At $350, the Wear24 had to compete with the likes of the Apple Watch 3 and Samsung Gear S3/Gear Sport, and, quite understandably, things didn't go well for Verizon.Before we do an overview of the Wear24, we need to explain why we're seeing such a big discount for this device. The timepiece hit the shelves in
Fortunately, this turn of events has led to the deal we're seeing today. The Wear24 is an Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch that packs a Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, a 1.39-inch 480p OLED screen, 768MB RAM, and 4GB internal memory. As stated earlier, it also comes with LTE, meaning that you can make phone calls without the need for a paired smartphone. It does feature NFC, but Verizon has disabled support for Android Pay. On the upside, you do get GPS, Wi-Fi, and a rather large 450mAh battery. You'll struggle to find a sub-$100 smartwatch with similar features.
At the time of writing, the Wear24 is available in all three color variations - Gunmetal Black, Rose Gold, and Stainless Steel. The eBay listing states that there are limited quantities available and 250 units have already been sold, so it might be a good idea to act fast if you're interested.
