    If you planned on picking up the Verizon variant of the LG Urbane 2 tomorrow, don't make the trip to your local store as LG has pulled the device from retailers.

    LG said the device has a hardware issue that will affect its day to day functionality.

    There's no word on specifically why the watches were pulled or when they may return. According to 9to5Google, Verizon will not ship to pre-order customers while AT&T has told its retail outlets to offer customers who have already purchased the 2nd Edition a full refund.

    Interesting turn of events. Wonder why they're being to quiet on what the specific issue is.

    At this point in the game, having announced it and let reviewers and bloggers get a first look at the device, you'd think they would've already known about this issue well in advance.

    I'm also wondering if they'll fix the issue and re-introduce it, or if they're scrapping it altogether and going back to the drawing board.

    Looks like it's down to the Gear S2 3G or Moto 360....just wondering if either device is actually going to hit stores before Thanksgiving.

    Must be something too that a software update doesn't fix. This may hurt the watch sales in the future too.

    I can't speak on the new 360(I only used the original), but I am absolutely in LOVE with my gear s2 on T-Mobile!

    Quick question, anybody using a gear s2 with the turbo 2. I had to return my s2 because I couldn't download Samsung Gear from the playstore. The original Turbo seems to be supported but not the Turbo 2.
