LG Watch Urbane reportedly headed to Verizon to take on the Moto 360

LG Watch Urbane reportedly headed to Verizon to take on the Moto 360
Verizon Wireless is already selling several smartwatches, but only one of them has a circular display: the Motorola Moto 360. Well, it looks like Verizon's Moto 360 will soon have a direct competitor in the LG Watch Urbane.

According to promo material revealed by Android Spin, Verizon should launch the LG Watch Urbane tomorrow, on April 28, for $349.99 (that's more than what you have to pay for a Moto 360: $249.99 with a leather band, or $299.99 with a metal band).

Made out of stainless steel, the Watch Urbane is dust- and water-resistant, and has a 22mm genuine leather wrist band that can be easily changed. Unlike the Moto 360, LG's device sports a fully circular display (1.3 inches with 320 x 320 pixels). Other features include 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory, a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, and a 410 mAh battery that should be able to last "all day long on a single charge." The LG Watch Urbane is the first to run the latest version of Android Wear out of the box.

Already available to buy in South Korea, the LG Watch Urbane is being released in other parts of the world starting this month, and customers should be able to find it via Google Store. Do you plan to buy one (either from Verizon, or from Google Store)?

You do know that you can just go to the play store and install a ton of different watch faces. An extra $100 for this watch, compared to the Moto 360. It does really look nice. They also need to bring this watch to other countries as well.

A total of 100,000 sold shouldn't be an accomplishment.

360 any day over this

The 360 was pretty disappointing to me. I think Motorola could have done better.
