LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE has a hardware issue, sales halted
LG today announced that it's stopping sales of the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE - a brand new device that was recently released as the first Android Wear smartwatch to feature cellular connectivity.

According to LG, the company identified an unspecified "hardware issue which affects the day-to-day functionality" of the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE. LG is obviously trying to fix the problem, but it can't say when (or if) it will manage to do it.

AT&T already released the new smartwatch, while Verizon was supposed to launch it tomorrow, November 20. Following LG's announcement, though, customers won't be able to find the watch anywhere - until LG fixes what's not working properly. Right now, although you can check out the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition over at AT&T's online website, the device is "out of stock."

As for those who've already purchased the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE from AT&T, it looks like the carrier will offer them refunds, or the choice of exchanging the device for another smartwatch.
