LG pulls latest smartwatch from sale
LG cancels launch of LG Watch Urbane 2 after hardware fault detected
LG has pulled its latest smartwatch, the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE, from sale after just a few days of availability.
The Android-based smartwatch has been removed from sale due to unspecified ‘hardware issues' after just six days on the market.
LG told the AndroidPolice website that a complex hardware issue had been detected late in the quality assurance process, and the company had decided to cancel the launch of the device. The manufacturer later confirmed to Ars Technica that the flaw was not dangerous and didn't pose any safety concerns, but no more details on the nature of the issue was available.
The Urbane 2nd Edition LTE was Android Wear's first watch with built-in LTE and the first Android Wear watch to ship with the Marshmallow operating system version.
