    Would it be worth buying a LG Urbane for $137?

    I don't think that's a horrible price. It's not $99, but it's certainly not $300

    I'd call it a steal. Quite frankly.

    I just assume they're on sale for a reason, but I guess it could just be because they want to clear out the first gen so they can push the newer LTE ones & sell more data plans for them.

    What are your thoughts on the Asus Zenwatch? have seen it cheaper than the LG Urbane and looks to be Spec'd about the Same.

    The 2? It's great but I think the bezel is too big.

    May I bring this thread back to life for a few?

    As some of you know from another thread, I'm looking to upgrade from my LG G to something with a round face. I *think* I have it narrowed down to gently used Moto 360 Gen 2, Urbane Gen 2, or Zenwatch 3. At the moment, my question stems from something I saw with the Urbane. It appears it's tied into our cellphone carrier and I'm confused as to what makes that one one different? Is there and advantage to having it "unlocked" or a Verizon model? Is there a monthly fee on my cellphone bill? My LG isn't a carrier specific model, but still shows me when someone's calling -- and who. What am I missing that this Urbane Verizon model is going to give me?
    Also, do all three of my above mentioned run AW 2.0 or higher? I feel like I've looked at so many lately, I may be skipping something critical at this point in my search.
    **EDIT** I forgot I've got the Ticwatch on my list, as well....

    I think all of those will run Android Wear 2.0
