    Now that is a good deal, a new AW smart watch for $99. Not bad! Looks like they may be out of stock already though.

    Would have been nice. I was too Slow. How does the LG Urbane stack up against the Newer Watches. at $229 its Cheaper and Nice looking to boot. but if its not as good Ld rather spend a little more and maybe get the Fossil Q for 295. I will keep an Eye for crazy Deals like this since Id like to get one sometime this Month!

    I like it. Nice enough that I didn't have any interest in upgrading when the newer ones came out. I started with the OG G Watch and upgraded to the Urbane at full-price. I don't regret the move. I don't really care for the watch to have it's own mobile data (and to pay extra each month for it). Other than that and a speaker, which I'm also not convinced that I'd really use much, I don't know that any other watch has anything more at this point in the game.

    I wore mine all day yesterday and simply turned it off at the end of the day. Still at 44% after turning it back on this morning before work.

    If you have any specific questions, I'm happy to do my best to answer them.

    Agree with Johnny.
    His Urbane isn't "old" by any stretch. There is nothing I am aware of (other then freaking quick charge on that Asus!!!!!) that any watch has that the Urbane does not.
    Still a solid choice.

    Thank you Both for your Insite. I may Consider it especially $100 less than the Fossil or Most at that Quality.

    Why you can use it for a whole day and still 44% battery life left?
    That must be a electronic watch,but not a smart one.:cool:

    Because it's a watch? Most of the day, the screen stays in ambient mode & tells me the time, date, weather, & battery levels of the watch & phone. I get notifications on it & sometimes I do voice commands.

    Using it all day and still having 44% battery is not too shabby for a smart watch. Mine has been Off the charger for 16 hours and still has 41% remaining.
