LG's luxury Urbane smartwatch now available in U.S.

LG's new Urbane smartwatch is available now via the Google Store, the first smartwatch to include Google's massive new Android Wear update.
The stainless steel watch with a circular display also comes with a leather band, giving it a luxury feel compared to rubber bands and plastic seen on many other Android Wear devices.

Google recently unveiled the Android Wear update, which enables Wi-Fi on some devices (meaning no Bluetooth necessary for some features even when your phone is not around), a low-power mode to dim the display while your apps remain open and even gesture-based navigation.

The device sells for $349 with free shipping and comes in both gold and silver. Google expects to start shipping on May 8th.

Grab the watch here.
