Peter Ludwig, product manager for Android Wear, nine days ago:
No more worrying about Bluetooth or Wi-Fi — your watch will
automatically switch to a cellular connection when you’re out of
range. As long as your watch and phone are connected to a cellular
network, you’ll be able to use your watch to send and receive
messages, track fitness, get answers from Google, and run your
favorite apps. And yes, you’ll even be able to make and take calls
right from your watch, for when your hands are full, or your phone
The first Android Wear watch with cellular support is the LG Watch
Urbane 2nd Edition LTE.
We understand that you are currently reviewing our latest
smartwatch; however, late in the quality assurance process for the
LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE, our engineers were made aware of
a hardware issue which affects the day-to-day functionality of the
device. After further investigation, the decision was made to
cancel the rollout of the Urbane 2nd Edition LTE due to the
complicated nature of the issue.
Whether the device will be available in the future will be decided
at a later time. For now, our top priority is to ensure that only
products that meet our very specific quality standards are
available for purchase.
