LG has updated the Watch Urbane. The 2nd generation Urbane has 4G and 3G capabilities and relatively large battery. 

LG has released the updated the Watch Urbane. It is the first Android Wear watch to feature cellular connectivity. Phone calls can now be received directly from the watch and the device doesn’t need to be connected to a phone.

The body of the watch is made out of stainless steel and the hypoallergenic elastomer band holds part of the electronics inside and therefore isn’t replaceable. The circular 1.38″ P-OLED display features a resolution of 480 x 480. The typical Android Wear specs sheet wasn’t enough for LG. The new Urbane has 768MB of RAM and a relatively large 570mAh battery. Other features are familiar, Snapdragon 400 and 4GB of storage.

The 2nd generation Watch Urbane is officially called the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition. It will be available in four colors, Space Black, Opal Blue, Luxe White and Signature Brown. Pricing and launch date are unknown.
