LG cancels the Watch Urbane 2 citing ‘Hardware issues’

LG Urbane2
LG has today advised that the follow up to the high-end LG Watch Urbane 2, which just launched on carriers AT&T and Verizon in the US has been cancelled.

The watch was the first device released running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, with Google citing the watch yesterday in their note to developers to begin targeting the Android 6.0 API level 23. LG has confirmed to Android Central in an email that the watch has been cancelled due to ‘Hardware Issues’.

Customers in the US who have purchased the watch from AT&T will be able to claim a refund or swap for another connected watch (not a TAG ;)) in their range.

This is a pretty major development for LG. We’ve contacted LG Australia for comment, but haven’t heard anything back as yet. We’ll update as soon as there’s anything to add.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I think its because of the battery, Many android watches make hardly a day, With LTE i’m sure it will be in hours
