LG Watch Urbane set for April 30 UK release

Having debuted at MWC 2015 last month, the LG Watch Urbane will be released in the UK next week, an online retailer has confirmed.

Gadget seller Clove has revealed plans to stock the Android Wear powered smartwatch starting next Thursday, April 30.

Such a release would see the wearable available for purchase less than a week after the Apple Watch is offered-up to consumers for the first time.

What’s more, the reseller has confirmed the Urbane will line up marginally cheaper than the base-level Apple Watch thanks to a £259.99 asking price.

The entry-level Apple Watch Sport will set wannabe owners back £299. Prices for the iPhone maker’s wrist wear quickly increase, however, rising to the bank breaking £13,500 Apple Watch Edition.

We reached out to LG for confirmation on the LG Watch Urbane’s planned release.

Despite Clove already accepting pre-orders for the Moto 360 rival, the Korean manufacturer has suggested it has yet to decide as to when to bring the device to UK stores.

Big brother to the LG G Watch R, the Urbane pairs a 1.3-inch circular P-OLED display with a premium, stainless steel body.

Powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, the device is compatible with any standard 22mm watch band and features an integrated heart rate sensor.
